Warriors Pushing NBA to Investigate Cavs’ Release of Patrick McCaw

According to a report from Marc Stein of the New York Times, the National Basketball Association is set to investigate the Cleveland Cavaliers' decision to sign McCaw to a two-year, $6M deal, and then waive him after just three games. Cleveland then tried to sign him for even less, making a sneaky maneuver to cover up paying him $6 million.

McCaw, the third-year wing who won two straight championships with the Warriors, has had a dramatic free agency ride since declining the Warrior's offer to sign him this past summer. Eventually, the Cleveland Cavaliers extended McCaw a two-year, $6 million non-guaranteed contract.

The investigation was requested by the Golden State Warriors, who had held McCaw's rights, according to the person, who was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly. "I don't know that there's been a totally non-guaranteed offer sheet before".

Saudi women to be notified of divorce by text message
The move is aimed at ensuring that women are not divorced without their knowledge and providing them their alimony rights. Saudi courts will use an SMS or text message to let women know when they are divorced.

The NBA will no doubt be looking into questions connected to whether or not the Cavaliers will now attempt to re-sign McCaw to a lesser contract now that he's an unrestricted free agent. McCaw still got paid while he was with the team of course, but it's clear now that they never had any intention of actually keeping him for two years under that deal.

Playing for the Warriors in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances.

Some have speculated the Cavaliers made the moves to spite the franchise that beat them in three of the past four NBA Finals.
