Week In Review 10/18/15-10/24/15

The Cavaliers and restricted free agent power forward Tristan Thompson signed a five-year, $82MM deal, finally ending the power forward’s holdout. Cleveland had held the upper hand in these negotiations since Thompson’s choices were limited to signing a long term deal with the Cavs, signing an offer sheet with another team, or continuing to sit out. March 1st would have been the last day for him to sign an offer sheet this season, if the drama dragged on that long, and if he held out all season, Cleveland would have had the chance to issue another qualifying offer to renew his restricted free agency next July. The 24-year-old becomes the sixth highest paid power forward in the league behind Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin, Paul Millsap, and David Lee.
