Patrick McCaw plans to sign with Raptors

Few athletes have had a month stranger than the one Patrick McCaw just had.

McCaw, who won two National Basketball Association titles as a swingman for the Warriors, plans to sign a veteran's minimum contract with the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

McCaw has appeared in 131 career games with Golden State and Cleveland, averaging 3.9 points, 1.2 assists and 15.9 minutes, and was a member of the Warriors' 2017 and 2018 National Basketball Association championship squads. As a restricted free agent, the Warriors could match any deal, and that made teams wary. It was the end of a weird saga that involved a half-season holdout, an offer sheet, a surprising release, and an ongoing investigation by the National Basketball Association into how it all went down. The NBA had examined the two-year, $6 million offer sheet closely prior to approving it, league sources said, but found no reason to disallow it.

"I've got enough to worry about, " Kerr said, before adding, "The whole thing was kind of odd".

McCaw appeared in three games for the Cavs and averaged 17.7 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. Then, just before his deal would have become guaranteed, the Cavaliers abruptly cut him.

Suspicions immediately arose around Cleveland's motivation behind signing a player from the team that beat them in three of four NBA Finals, then releasing him nearly immediately. He cleared waivers Wednesday after the Cleveland Cavaliers waived him Monday ahead of the league's contract guarantee deadline. The NBA is reportedly launching a formal review into Cleveland's facilitating of these events, according to New York Times reporter Marc Stein.

Pat McCaw's odd saga has come to an end.

The Raptors announced Thursday that the club had signed McCaw, although terms of the deal were not disclosed. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again".

It's surely been a whirlwind couple days for McCaw. And he isn't likely to play any more in Toronto than he would have in Golden State.
