According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, McCaw will sign a deal with the Raptors following his release from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Two days after being released by the Cavs, former Warriors guard Patrick McCaw cleared waivers at 2 p.m. PT on Wednesday.

Going after a restricted free agent takes additional time, and if the Cavs are arguing urgency of trotting out able bodies, signing McCaw wouldn't be the fastest, or best route to go about it. He signed a non-guaranteed two-year, $6 million offer sheet with the Cavaliers in December of 2018 and appeared in three games, posting averages of 1.7 points, 1.0 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 17.7 minutes per contest. As a restricted free agent, the Warriors could match any deal, and that made teams wary.

Golden State reportedly requested the National Basketball Association to investigate Cleveland's signing and immediate release of Patrick McCaw.

The day the Cavaliers signed Patrick McCaw , they had nine healthy players available for a game that night in Miami. Other teams are also reportedly interested in signing him, having deferred before when he was restricted.

If the Cavs and McCaw arranged to waive McCaw before the contract was official, it would be a violation of league rules and could result in some dire consequences.Namely, the Cavs could be fined and be lose their first-round pick. After three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw was waived on Sunday before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of the season.

The Toronto Raptors are reportedly taking a chance on Patrick McCaw.

Now, McCaw joins Toronto's bench as the Raptors pursue an Eastern Conference championship.

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.
