Report: Tristan Thompson and Cavs are still "apart", deal isn't complete

Well this is a speed bump Yesterday it appeared that the Cleveland Cavaliers completed three deals for major pieces of what they hope will be a championship core: Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Iman Shumpert. Thompson and Shumpert's deals were a bit eye opening. Instead of the Cavs letting the two test the restricted free agent market, it seemed like they were willing to perhaps pay a little more to get them done and get long-term security. Today, though, it seems that there has been a bump in the road of Thompson's talks: After progress was made yesterday, Cavs & Tristan Thompson are...

Cavs place big gamble on Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert on first day of free agency

On the first day of free agency, the Cavs locked in two role players for big money. Will it be worth it? $120 million for Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert. You'll be forgiven for needing some time to get used to this new NBA reality. On the first day of NBA free agency, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced they were extending Thompson and Shumpert. There would be no one year qualifying offers accepted, like Greg Monroe did last season. There would be no offer sheet matched after they signed with another team, as the Jazz did with Gordon Hayward last summer. No drama, just money. Forget the...

Cavaliers’ championship window wide open as Kevin Love announces he’ll return on 5-year contract; Tristan Thompson also expected to re-sign

Two men kept their word Wednesday. As a result, the Cavaliers appear poised to contend for championships for at least the next five years. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who has never blinked at spending whatever is deemed necessary to win, perhaps spent $200 million in one day Wednesday when Kevin Love announced in an article on The Players Tribune he will return to the Cavs next season and ESPN reported Tristan Thompson is nearing agreement with the Cavs on a deal that will pay him more than $80 million. Thompson’s deal is believed to be worth five years, just as Love is believed to be accepting...

Report: Tristan Thompson to sign deal worth more than $80 million with Cavs

Tristan Thompson appears to be on the verge of signing a huge deal to stay in Cleveland. Tristan Thompson and the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly come to an agreement on a new deal. According to ESPN's Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst, Thompson is set to sign an extension worth more than $80 million with the Cavs. Thompson, a restricted free agent, made a little over $5 million last season. In October, he turned down an extension from the Cavs that was worth a reported $52 million over four years. No word yet as to how long Thompson's new deal will be. If it's four year, he will make $20...

Cavaliers enter free agency with six free agents; priority is retaining nucleus from last season despite soaring price

The Cavaliers will enter free agency Wednesday with a hammer and tool belt, only this time they’re not trying to rebuild the roster. They’re erecting a fence to keep everyone in. The main objective with July 1 arriving is figuring a way to keep the nucleus of a team that advanced to the NBA Finals intact. It’s going to cost owner Dan Gilbert tens of millions — in fact, the most he has ever spent. The Cavs have six free agents this month: LeBron James, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert. Thompson, Dellavedova and Shumpert were extended...

Cavaliers notebook: LeBron James, Kevin Love expected to become free agents, re-sign with Cavs

INDEPENDENCE: LeBron James and Kevin Love are expected to opt out of their contracts later this month and become free agents, General Manager David Griffin said Thursday, although he expects both stars to return to the Cavaliers.“I think everybody who has the potential to opt out in this climate probably will, and I anticipate that we’ve created the kind of environment and culture that they want to be part of,” Griffin said. “I have no reason to believe that any of those players don’t want to be back.”The Cavs have plenty of contract decisions to make in the coming weeks.
