According to The New York Times' Marc Stein, the National Basketball Association will investigate the situation at Golden State's request.

The NBA will formally investigate the Cleveland Cavaliers' signing of Patrick McCaw, according to a report.

Cleveland then waived McCaw after just three games - one day before his contract would have become guaranteed - making him an unrestricted free agent (once he cleared waivers).

A person with knowledge of the matter spoke Tuesday with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the investigation have not been revealed publicly.

The New York Times first reported that the National Basketball Association would review the matter. McCaw's contract with the team was for two years at $6 million, but it was not guaranteed.

The 6-foot-7 swingman remained a restricted free agent until agreeing to the Cavs' offer sheet.

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

No matter what all of this is about, McCaw's agent appears to be putting him in sticky situations that, long-term, could cause organizations not to want to deal with him. Cleveland signed McCaw and waived him to pick up recently waived Chicago Bulls point guard Cameron Payne.

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

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