McCaw played just three games in Cleveland after signing a nonguaranteed two-year, $6 million deal with the Cavaliers.
The NBA is investigating the circumstances surrounding McCaw’s release at the Warriors request, according to an earlier report by the New York Times.
McCaw began the year as a restricted free agent and was in a holdout with the Warriors. He reportedly turned down a two-year, $5 million deal from the team along with its $1.71 million qualifying offer.
The Warriors ultimately declined to match the offer sheet McCaw signed with Cleveland.
McCaw averaged 1.7 points and one rebound in three games with Cleveland this season before his release.
