  • Report: Warriors ask NBA to investigate Cavs' signing, release of Patrick McCaw

There might have been a league issue had the Cavaliers tried to re-sign McCaw at a lower number than the $3 million that he would've been owed this season, but the Cavaliers moved on from him.

The league is investigating for a potential agreement between McCaw or his agent, Bill Duffy, and the Cavs on a promise of waiving him before the deadline. McCaw was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers.

The circumstances were freaky and raised questions about Cleveland's motivation to sign and release a player off the roster of their frequent NBA Finals rival.

The Cavs signed McCaw in late December to a non-guaranteed, two-year, $6 million offer sheet.

Jeff Bezos is rated the world's wealthiest man by Forbes and Bloomberg , with a fortune estimated at around $ 137 billion . It is not clear if Jeff and MacKenzie have a prenuptial agreement, which could also affect how their assets are divided.

But that didn't go over too well with the league.

McCaw held out of the Warriors' training camp and the opening half of the season searching for an offer sheet, and he played three games without the benefit of practice for the Cavaliers.

"The Cavaliers also do not benefit from Toronto acquiring a 22-year-old wing player that could add bench dept amid its hopes to make an National Basketball Association championship run". But they could face a stiff penalty if found guilty of premeditatedly helping him escape his RFA status, standing to lose as much as a first-round draft pick, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic. The Warriors would not receive anything in return, per terms of the NBA's labor deal. As a restricted free agent, the Warriors could match any deal, and that made teams wary. After three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw was waived on Sunday before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of the season.
