The NBA will review the Cleveland Cavaliers' signing and release of forward Patrick McCaw at the request of the Golden State Warriors, according to The New York Times' Marc Stein.

The Cavaliers signed McCaw to a non-guaranteed two-year, $6-million offer sheet December 28 that went unmatched by Golden State. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly. Unfortunately for him, the defending champs aren't the best team to try and leverage, so Golden State let his free agency drag out well into the season.

The New York Times first reported that the National Basketball Association was reviewing the matter. McCaw is practicing with the Cavaliers, who signed him to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet last week.

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

Over the weekend, word broke that McCaw would be released by the Cavs ahead of Monday's deadline for non-guaranteed deals to become guaranteed, making McCaw an unrestricted free agent once he cleared waivers. McCaw's contract with the team was for two years at $6 million, but it was not guaranteed.

In his three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw averaged 1.7 points and one rebound per contest.

Golden State selected McCaw in the second round in 2016.
