McCaw finds new home with Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have agreed to sign free-agent forward Patrick McCaw, ESPN reports.

McCaw most recently played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors didn't match the offer, making McCaw a member of the Cavs.

The rocky relationship between McCaw and the Warriors started almost seven months ago when McCaw rejected the Warriors' $1.7 million qualifying offer and two-year $5.2 million deal, Mercury News reported.

Senator Doug Jones of Alabama said, "We need to dial back the rhetoric and not use fear". The president said that all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal immigration.

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

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.

If he helps them, great. The suspicious signing and waiving of the Warriors' former guard has drawn red flags which have led to the Golden State Warriors reportedly asking for an investigation, according to Marc Stein of the NY Times. In essence, the Cavs would be helping McCaw escape restricted free agency.

Cavs fans should be anxious about missing out on Zion Williamson (or R.J. Barrett, if you prefer), but the reason is the new draft lottery odds, not a possible punishment for doing Patrick McCaw a solid.

Australia to 'consider' Saudi teen Rahaf Alqunun's asylum plea
The teen said she is seeking asylum in Australia, and Thai police have allowed her to meet with United Nations refugee officials. But after being detained by Thai authorities, she refused to board a flight back to Kuwait, barricading herself in a hotel room.

So at the end of the day, the only thing McCaw accomplished was escaping a team that has won three of the last four National Basketball Association championships. On top of this, if there is any instance of collusion between both the Cavaliers organization and McCaw's group, then Cleveland will lose their 2019 first-round draft pick along with future draft selections. There is precedent for this, as back in 2000, the Minnesota Timberwolves lost five first-round picks due to their negotiations with free agent Joe Smith.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday after being released by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week. Now, if a loss of pick in on the horizon, things will certainly start to get interesting surrounding McCaw.

The Cavs released McCaw before his deal became fully guaranteed.
