No violation of CBA found in Cleveland's signing-release of Patrick McCaw

At first look, the Patrick McCaw signing and somewhat-prompt release after he only played three games for his new team, the Cavaliers, looked slightly shady. But the NBA just-as-promptly found no violation of the NBA's CBA. They apparently found no collusion between any parties in the deal.

McCaw was signed by Cleveland as a free agent for two years and $6 million. His former team was the Golden State Warriors. After his release by the Cavs, he is now an unrestricted free agent. He was signed by Cleveland as a restricted free agent, and GS did not match the offer. I had previously written the following on the matter:

I expect the NBA's investigation to go nowhere unless specific and solid evidence comes forward. Count me as skeptical.

So no major surprise here. As I expected, the investigation ended quickly and as expected.
