National Basketball Association officials are visiting with Patrick McCaw's representatives Thursday, as the league begins an investigation centered on a contract between McCaw and the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to reports. Golden State could've matched.

The Warrior filed a request with the National Basketball Association to investigate whether the transactions qualified as salary-cap circumvention.
