Tristan Thompson might find himself in some ugly deadlock as trade rumors are apparently in favor of Thompson moving to the Phoenix.
With the season starting in just 16 days, there is a lot of speculation about Thompson’s future. The reports have also intensified the news of Thompson moving from the Cavs as their negotiations were heading in the wrong direction, Yibada.
The Cavs and Thompson have not reached any negotiations to conclude his future with the club and it is in the best interest for both the club and the player to reconcile their differences and move on from the murky issue.
The SportsBlog reports that the club has further escalated their differences with the Canadian Basketball professional by removing his posters from the Cleveland Stadiums and his official merchandise from the stores.
The rival clubs are keeping a close tab on the matter as they are looking forward to any opportunity to sign Thompson before the season begins.
LeBron James has recently posted pictures of him with Thompson on social media sites and advised his club to get over with their issue regarding the negotiations. It is still believed that Thompson is waiting for the Cavs to reconsider him as he feels that the club will eventually “realise that they need him”.
The Phoenix have already signed Eric Bledsoe and are looking to negotiate a deal with Thompson. The Orlando Pinstriped post proposed a “3 Way Trade to gain a deal”.
The proposed deal reads as follows, “Veteran Channing Frye and Shabazz Napier to Cleveland. The Cavs then send Tristan Thompson to the Suns, who would offer the three-year modified deal he was asking for, as well as a 2016 Second round pick from Chicago.Orlando will get Markieff Morris and take him off the Suns’ hands so he can be a back up for Scott Skiles. Also, the Magic will receive the Suns 2016 first round pick from Cleveland that’s top-10 protected.”
Only time will decide Thompson’s fate now as we eagerly wait for a concluding factor in the transfer issue.
