Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 9/20/15

Tristan Thompson‘s salary dispute with the Cavs is ready to carry into training camp because the two sides have been in an impasse since negotiations began in July. Regardless, Thompson appears headed toward signing the Cavs’ qualifying offer and entering unrestricted free agency next summer.

It’s been widely believed that Thompson’s immediate future is in Cleveland, but for how long? If Thompson has a big season how likely is it that he would bolt from the Cavs?

That brings us to today’s topic: What do you think Thompson’s future in the league is and where will he be playing after this season (assuming he signs the Cavs’ qualifying offer for this season)?


Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the subject. We look forward to what you have to say!

      Agreed. If Thompson/Paul wanted to hold the Cavs hostage, TT would need to be a max player. Since he is a bench player on a healthy Cleveland team, he has no leverage. The only question now is if Cleveland’s front office will cave to a Rich Paul client because of LeBron

  1. I’m just thinking about the optics of this for next year (if he does accept the QA). Does this standoff turn teams off from him? I could see a team like Portland offering Thompson the max if the Ed Davis experiment doesn’t workout. Or Thompson could be a fill-in if the Kings decide to move Cousins. As a raptor fan, I would rather give Derozan a max contract next year than give one to Thompson.

    I personally think the NBA is getting ridiculous with these new deals. To paraphrase John Wall ” How can a guy who hasn’t even made an all-star game make more than me?”

      If you think it’s ridiculous now, wait until the salary cap explodes next summer. Thompson is making the right move by not signing now unless he gets the max. There’s a lot more money waiting in 2016.
