McCaw officially joined the Cavaliers' roster on Monday, Dec. 31 after Golden State decided not to match Cleveland's offer.

The NBA will launch a formal review into the Cleveland Cavaliers' signing of restricted free agent Patrick McCaw at the request of the Golden State Warriors, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

The circumstances were weird and raised questions about Cleveland's motivation to sign and release a player off the roster of their frequent NBA Finals rival. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly.

Golden State selected McCaw in the second round in 2016.

McCaw spent parts of his first two years of his National Basketball Association career with the Warriors, but was not re-signed during the offseason as a restricted free agent.

The Yoshi's Crafted World Release Date Is March 29, 2019
Both titles will retail for standard Nintendo of America MSRPs ($59.99/$39.99 for Yoshi and Kirby respectively). The Nintendo Switch exclusive game Yoshi's Crafted World has finally received a release date for all regions.

The New York Times first reported that the National Basketball Association was reviewing the matter.

How long the league's review will take has not been determined, nor is it clear what the Warriors might be seeking.

As a restricted free agent, the Warriors had the option of matching the Cavs' offer sheet for McCaw, but they chose not to.

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

At least four teams are reportedly interested in signing McCaw, while the Cavaliers may also want to bring him back. He scored 5 total points in the three appearances with the Cavaliers.
