Patrick McCaw plans sign Toronto Raptors after Cleveland Cavaliers release

Of course, how McCaw became an unrestricted free agent is one of the stranger stories in recent memory.

Now, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania, McCaw will sign a one-year contract with Toronto for the veteran's minimum of $786,000. However, he only ended up playing three games with the Cavaliers, who waived him before that deal would become fully guaranteed. McCaw was expected to step into an expanded role in year three, but chose to hold out instead of agreeing to the Warriors two-year, $5.2 million offer during the offseason.

Also at 2 p.m. PT on Wednesday, multiple national reports stated that McCaw plans to sign with the Toronto Raptors. 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. He signed a non guaranteed offer sheet with the Cavs and Golden State didn't match it.

McCaw averaged 4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 57 games last season, his second in the National Basketball Association.

The NBA is investigating the Cavs for possibility circumventing the salary cap after waiving McCaw. The New York Times reported that the league granted the request, although league executives are skeptical of any punishment being handed out, according to ESPN.

The Raptors announced Thursday that the club had signed McCaw, although terms of the deal were not disclosed.

McCaw most recently played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back near the end of last season after a horrific fall during a game at Sacramento.
