McCaw could make his Raptors debut Friday. He saw action in three games for the Cavaliers, but the team ultimately decided to let him go before his contract was guaranteed. He's not expected to hold a significant role with Toronto, though his presence may come in handy if the team deals with backcourt injuries.
McCaw is planning on signing a deal with the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Following a months-long contract dispute with the Warriors, McCaw was cut loose by the Cavaliers on Monday after averaging 1.7 points and 1.0 rebound across three appearances. The circumstances surrounding McCaw's unexpected release from Cleveland are being reviewed by the NBA, but that shouldn't impact his immediate status as he makes his way to Toronto, per SportsNet's Michael Grange. Assuming the deal is completed, McCaw could make his Raptors debut as early as Friday against the Nets or Sunday in Washington.
McCaw will be waived by the Cavaliers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Cavaliers signed McCaw to a two-year, $6 million contract just over a week ago, but the team evidently concluded that he didn't fit into their plans after evaluating him in his three appearances. In those contests, McCaw aveaged just 1.7 points, 1.0 rebound and 0.7 assists while shooting 22.2 percent from the field in 17.7 minutes per game. By letting him go Monday, the remaining money on McCaw's contract won't be guaranteed, freeing Cleveland of any further financial commitment. If he's not scooped up off waivers, McCaw shouldn't take long to find a home elsewhere on a more team-friendly contract.
Coach Larry Drew said he expects McCaw to play Wednesday against the Heat, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
McCaw is trending towards making his Cleveland debut against Miami on Wednesday after signing with the Cavaliers over the weekend. It's unclear how prominent of a role the guard will immediately play for his new team with Rodney Hood (Achilles), David Nwaba (ankle), Cedi Osman, Alec Burks, Jordan Clarkson and Matthew Dellavedova also options for Cleveland on the wing.
