But because he was a restricted free agent, the Warriors could match any deal another team offered him, and this made things hard for him.
According to the New York Times, the league will launch a formal review into the matter, per Golden State's request.
Though he struggled offensively and suffered a horrific back injury last season, McCaw's length and defensive prowess are what earned him minutes on the Warriors in his first two seasons.
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 Greater Detroit Democratic Socialists of America endorsed her candidacy in May 2018. Rashida Tlaib is not holding back on how she feels about President Trump .
When the Cleveland Cavaliers released guard Patrick McCaw soon after signing him to a non-guaranteed contract, the move raised some eyebrows. It's unclear how long the NBA's review will take, or what - if anything - the Warriors are seeking.
McCaw, a restricted free agent, signed a two-year, $6 million offer sheet with the Cavaliers on December 28. "I don't know that there's been a totally non-guaranteed offer sheet before". The Cavs signed McCaw on December 30 and then waived him almost a week later, on January 7. As an unrestricted free agent, McCaw sign with any team of his choice. He was sent that same night to the Warriors and in his two seasons, averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists.
