Raptors signing Patrick McCaw

Raptors signing Patrick McCaw

Patrick McCaw is an unrestricted free agent, and the Cleveland Cavaliers may be in trouble because of it.

The deal is for one year and the veteran's minimum of $786,000, per Shams Charania of Stadium.

In any case, McCaw is now a member of the Raptors, who will be back in action on Friday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets (7:30 p.m. ET - Watch on FuboTV with NBA League Pass add-on), which is a great outcome to this whole scenario for him. Matching the McCaw offer sheet would've elevated the Warriors luxury tax bill $11.3 million to $61.6 million. After passing on the Golden State Warriors' qualifying offer this summer, McCaw found it hard to find another offer.

The NBA is reportedly investigating the Cavaliers signing Patrick McCaw to an offer sheet the Warriors didn't match then waiving him a short time later.

The Milwaukee Bucks drafted McCaw with the 38th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Cavaliers waived McCaw on January 6, making him an unrestricted free agent once he cleared waivers.

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.

The Raptors needed to sign someone as they were carrying just 13 players after waiving Lorenzo Brown on Monday.
