Report: Cavaliers PF Thompson signing could be in works


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) Optimism has replaced pessimism for the Cavaliers in regard to signing power forward/center Tristan Thompson to a contract extension, multiple sources have told the Akron Beacon Journal.

Thompson will become a restricted free agent if an agreement isn't reached prior to the Friday deadline. The team would be allowed to match any offer, but it might not reach that point.

"We'd like to sign Tristant long-term to the Cavaliers; I don't think that's any secret," owner Dan Gilbert said Wednesday. "I believe they'd like to do that as well. So we'll hopefully see what happens this week."

Complicating matters is the possible extension of teammate and fellow center Anderson Varejao, whose presence played a role in the return of buddy LeBron James to Cleveland. Varejao is making $9.7 million this year and the team wants him back. He is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in 2015.

Thompson averaged 11.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game as a full-time starter last year, but will be coming off the bench to start this season.


Report: 'Zero discussion' on extension for Cavs' Tristan Thompson


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) The Cavaliers and forward Tristan Thompson have had "zero discussion on an extension" with the Oct. 31 deadline less than a week away, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. If the two sides don't agree to a deal befor the deadline, Thompson will become a restricted free agent next offseason.


Report: Varejao beats out Thompson as Cavs starting center


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) What was speculated has become official -- Anderson Varejao is the starting center for the Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson will come off the bench, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Both players performed well in exhibition play, but Varejao provides more of an interior defensive presence and has improved his offensive game markedly. Thompson has also become a greater offensive threat, but is considered more of a power forward on defense.


Report: Cavs likely to start Varejao over Thompson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Early speculation that Tristan Thompson would start at center for the Cavaliers and energetic teammate Anderson Varejao would come off the bench has been refuted by the News Herald, which is claiming that the latter is all but set to start.

Both players have performed well in the preseason. Varejao however, is a favorite of LeBron James, who praised the Brazilian upon his return to Cleveland from Miami.

"He's the same Andy," James said. "If you ask him to run through six walls, he'll run through seven. He'll fight for every loose ball. He'll dive on the floor. He'll set screens. He'll help you out when you get knocked down. If any altercation happens, Andy will be right there. We just need him to stay healthy."

There's the rub. Varejao has lost 166 games to injury over the last four years. That constitutes more than half the games during that stretch.


Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson to be held out Tuesday

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson a candidate to start at center?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) The Cavaliers are contemplating using 6-foot-9 Tristan Thompson as their starting center this season in order to give the team a more athletic lineup, according to the News-Herald. If that happens, Thompson is hoping to learn from playing next to newly-acquired forward Kevin Love.

"I can learn a lot from Kevin," Thompson said. "He's a phenomenal rebounder. His outlet passes are the best I've ever seen since watching basketball." Thompson said. "Our games are totally different, but at the same time, we complement each other. He can space the floor, shoot the 3 and he's a terrific passer. For me, I play around the rim."
