The Cavaliers got some good news today regarding the NBA’s investigation into now former guard Patrick McCaw.
There was concern that the team might lose a draft pick or get fined over the situation, which was raised up by the Golden State Warriors, but today the NBA said they found “no violation” of anything the Cavs did.
Here’s the official statement by the NBA regarding the investigation:
The NBA announced today that it has completed its investigation into the Cleveland Cavaliers’ signing and subsequent waiver of Patrick McCaw. Based on the specific facts and circumstances of this matter, the NBA found that there was no violation of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, including the anti-circumvention rules.
McCaw was with the Cavs for a very short period of time after the team inked him off waivers from the Warriors, playing in just three games.
He had inked a two-year, nonguaranteed contract in December. After the Cavs released him, they were one of the teams in the running to bring him back, but instead he inked a deal with the Toronto Raptors.
