Report: Toronto Raptors to waive guard Patrick McCaw

The Toronto Raptors have reportedly made another roster move.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the team is waiving Patrick McCaw, who has not played since March 22.

McCaw, who joined the Raptors as a free agent midway through the 2018-19 season and appeared in 11 games during the team's run to the 2019 NBA title. Since then, the 25-year-old has dealt with persisting knee injuries that have limited him to just five games since March of 2020.

Over three seasons with Toronto, McCaw has appeared in a total of 68 games (13 starts), posting averages of 3.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in just under 19 minutes per contest.

A three-time NBA champion, McCaw hoisted the Larry O'Brien Trophy in each of the first three seasons of his career, winning two championships with the Golden State Warriors before joining Toronto in 2019.

This reported move continues a busy week for the Raptors, who have signed big man Freddie Gillespie to a 10-day contract and will reportedly add Montrealer Khem Birch once he clears waivers after being released by the Orlando Magic.

As reported by Blake Murphy of The Athletic, Toronto did not need to open a roster spot for the above moves so the release of McCaw gives the team flexibility to peruse other free agent markets or convert contracts before the season's end.
