Patrick McCaw to sign with Raptors, report says

  • Patrick Mc Caw has reportedly agreed to play for the Toronto Raptors. More

One day before his contract became guaranteed, Cleveland waived McCaw.

McCaw played just three games in Cleveland after signing a nonguaranteed two-year, $6 million deal with the Cavaliers.

The Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match the two-year, $6 million offer sheet that he signed with the Cavaliers on December 28 - with the potential luxury tax ramifications among the many reasons that factored into their thinking.

McCaw plans to sign a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of $786,000, according to The Athletic. It was a weird situation.

In an interesting sidenote, you could look at this as an Alfonzo McKinnie-for-Patrick McCaw trade, if the former Warrior sticks with the Raptors.

The Warriors ultimately declined to match the offer sheet McCaw signed with Cleveland. He remains inconsistent, but all that may be because he was on a team like the Golden State Warriors that was already filled with stars.


The Raptors, who waived Lorenzo Brown on Monday, will welcome McCaw as a depth piece. In essence, the Cavs would be helping McCaw escape restricted free agency.

After waiving McCaw, the Cavs, who are now dealing with several injuries, went out and signed point guard Cameron Payne to shore up their ranks at the point guard position.

McCaw was the 38th overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft out of UNLV. Then, just before his deal would have become guaranteed, the Cavaliers abruptly cut him.

The Cavs did in fact released him, and now McCaw is free to sign anywhere.

With the way things have been going for the Cavs, that could be the first pick in the entire draft.
