The NBA will launch a formal review into the Cleveland Cavaliers' signing of restricted free agent Patrick McCaw at the request of the Golden State Warriors, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly.

Cleveland's freakish handling of McCaw made us wonder whether they had done him a favor, signing and then waiving him so he could become an unrestricted free agent as he desired. The Warriors, McCaw's former employer, complained to the National Basketball Association about it, and the league is investigating, multiple sources confirmed to The Athletic. It's unclear how long the NBA's review will take, or what - if anything - the Warriors are seeking.

The Cavaliers agreed to a non-guaranteed two-year, $6 million offer sheet with McCaw, who had been a restricted free agent, and the Warriors declined to match. "I don't know that there's been a totally non-guaranteed offer sheet before". He scored 5 total points in the three appearances with the Cavaliers.
