2014 Cleveland Cavaliers player previews: Tristan Thompson

Fear the Sword previews Tristan Thompson for the 2014-2015 NBA Season. Drafted as a project in 2011, Tristan Thompson was thrust into a role that he was not prepared for and his shortcomings have been exposed for all to see. He's been one of the most durable players throughout his three years in Cleveland, starting every game for the past two after missing six games in his rookie campaign. While Thompson remains raw, his looming restricted free agency leaves the team with a tough decision to make. Do you give him a significant contract over the next four years? Or, do you risk putting...

Cavs facing complicated decision in choosing between Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson for starting center

INDEPENDENCE: When David Blatt was discussing the merits of choosing between Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson as his starting center, he dismissed much of the debate by declaring “it probably doesn’t make a big difference.”On the court, he might be right. Both players are similar rebounding machines, although Varejao is statistically a slightly better rim protector and has more range offensively. Off the court, however, choosing a starting center will be an important and tricky journey for the Cavaliers.Both Varejao and Thompson could essentially be playing this season for their...

Cleveland Cavaliers considering playing Tristan Thompson at center

The Cavaliers are at least toying with the idea of starting Tristan Thompson at center. If they do, they must feel his athleticism will overshadow the size discrepancy he would face almost every night. Thompson is listed as 6 feet 9, 228 pounds. The league is shifting toward more mobile big men instead of the behemoths in the paint.

Tristan Thompson dedicates upcoming season to Cavaliers fans in SLAM interview

Brendan Bowers interviewed Tristan Thompson on his summer and the upcoming season. Outside of Anderson Varejao and Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson is the longest tenured member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. It's easy to forget just how much turnover the Cavs have experienced over the last four seasons, but Thompson has managed to be one of its only constants. Thompson has started every game over the last two seasons, but is entering a pivotal year in his career. Last season it appeared as though Thompson took two steps back in order to take one forward. While he showed growth throughout the...

Tristan Thompson not concerned with contract, focused on helping Cleveland Cavaliers win

Thompson is in the final season of his entry contract.

Cleveland Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson prefers to focus on hoops, not cash - for now

The Beacon Journal reported earlier this week that Cavs forward Tristan Thompson will seek $11 million a year when he begins negotiations for a contract extension. That number is similar to that given to Derrick Favors ($49 million) and Larry Sanders ($44 million).  In three years with the Cavs, Thompson averaged 10.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.  He’s in the final year of his rookie deal and can become a restricted free agent next season if he and the Cavs cannot come to a deal this season. There is reason to believe something could be worked out.  Thompson and LeBron James...
