LeBron says re-signing Tristan Thompson should be the Cavs' top priority, speaks on meeting with Kevin Love

LeBron Jamse says re-signing Tristan Thompson should be the Cavs' top priority. While discussing his initiative to offer full scholarships to the University of Akron to kids who complete his 'I Promise', LeBron James was predictably asked about Tristan Thompson and stressed that the Cavs need to re-sign Thompson.

"Things need to be worked out from his side and the Cavs, but we need him back," James continued. "I think our front office...

On Eric Bledsoe, Tristan Thompson, Markieff Morris and the Phoenix Suns

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson is an unsigned restricted free agent. His team really, really wants to re-sign him and thought the process would be easy. But he is represented by Rich Paul, and he's currently in a protracted holdout for what many would consider an unreasonable amount of money. Sound familiar, Suns fans? Replace the player name with Eric Bledsoe and you've got a repeat of last summer in the valley. The Suns and Bledsoe eventually agreed to a 5-year contract worth more than the Suns wanted to pay, but less than LeBron Paul wanted. Bledsoe wanted $16 million per...

The negotiating through the media begins now The contract talks between Tristan Thompson and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been largely kept out of the public eye. After a prolonged period with nothing from either side the media is finally being used as a tool to gain leverage in negotiations. Earlier today, ESPN's Brian Windhorst did a fantastic job giving a look at the inner workings of the negotiations and what makes this situation so unique in comparison to free agent negotiations in the past. In short, the dramatic shift in the salary cap paired with the Cavs inability to replace...

The great part is also the bad part, as we get lost in obsessing about minutia and over simplify things into easy to consume points that miss the bigger picture.  Case in point: Tristan Thompson....

Tristan Thompson has more leverage than you think

Tristan Thompson has some leverage that a typical restricted free agent wouldn't have It's hard to know exactly what's going on between Tristan Thompson and the Cavs. There has been little news on the Thompson front since free agency began roughly a month ago and it isn't clear as to where the two teams stand. All we really know is that something - maybe money, maybe something else - has created a gap between the two sides. Normally, this is pretty standard in restricted free agency. A player is tendered a qualifying offer that they probably won't sign because it means that they'll be...
