Sources: Pat McCaw plans to sign one-year, $786K veteran’s minimum deal with the Toronto Raptors. McCaw has cleared free agency waivers.

The deal is reportedly a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract.
McCaw began the season as an unsigned, restricted free agent with the Warriors. He agreed to an offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Dec. 28, which the Warriors elected to not match. After three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw was waived on Sunday before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of the season. McCaw was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers.
The 23-year-old guard should provide solid depth for the Raptors, who currently have the best record in the NBA at 31-12.
McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. He scored five points in the three appearances with the Cavaliers.
Information from the Associated Press was included in this report.
TNT’s Barkley to appear on sitcom ‘The Goldbergs’
The NBA on TNT’s Charles Barkley will make a cameo appearance next week on the ABC-TV sitcom “The Goldbergs.” The show will premiere at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Barkley, a member of the basketball Hall of Fame, will play substitute gym teacher Neelo Greene. In the episode, Barkley rejects and blocks shots by students attempting to score on him.
The Goldbergs is based on Adam F. Goldberg’s experiences growing up in a Philadelphia-suburban family in the 1980s, and often inserts recreations of Goldberg’s personal life into the show. Barkley played for the Philadelphia 76ers from 1984-92.
“Having Sir Charles Barkley on set was a thrill,” said Goldberg, who also referred to Barkley as Philadelphia royalty. “Charles was amazingly gracious — taking the time to joke around with the cast and crew, and making sure he didn’t leave before every person on that set got a handshake.”
