The Cleveland Cavaliers and center Tristan Thompson share a mutual interest in a Thompson return, general manager Koby Altman said in a Zoom call with reporters. “He’s been with this franchise his entire career since we drafted him. He’s won a championship here.”
Meanwhile, Thompson hasn’t dropped any hints about his plans.
That may be something Thompson considers in free agency, but oftentimes in the business of basketball, it comes down to which dollars make the most sense.
Thompson has also received very public backing from his teammates, including Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr.
Love even said re-signing Thompson “Should be our No. 1 priority.”
Along with that, coach J.B. Bickerstaff loves Thompson’s leadership, positive attitude and willingness to play any role.
