However, he only ended up playing three games with the Cavaliers, who waived him before that deal would become fully guaranteed.

Golden State extended a qualifying offer, but McCaw decided instead to hold out for a better deal - ideally one in which he could become an unrestricted free agent at the end.

Patrick McCaw seems to have found a new home - for the second time in fewer than two weeks.

Now, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania, McCaw will sign a one-year contract with Toronto for the veteran's minimum of $786,000.

The Raptors aren't involved in the investigation.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the league has opened a review at the request of the Golden State Warriors, the team with which McCaw spent the previous two seasons.

McCaw began the year as a restricted free agent and was in a holdout with the Warriors. While the Cavaliers followed all the rules, and can argue McCaw played poorly in what they viewed as an audition before his contract became guaranteed, it wasn't hard to find the circumstances a bit fishy.

National Basketball Association officials will speak to Patrick McCaw's representatives Thursday, as the league begins an investigation centered on McCaw and the Cavaliers, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News.

The Warrior filed a request with the National Basketball Association to investigate whether the transactions qualified as salary-cap circumvention.

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.
