LeBron James: No reason Tristan Thompson shouldn’t spend rest of career with Cavaliers
Thompson holds plenty of implied leverage thanks to sharing an agent with LeBron James. Considering Cleveland wants to keep LeBron happy and LeBron considers Rich Paul’s clients to be family, the Cavs are stuck.
LeBron is even upping he pressure.
LeBron, via Dave McMenamin of ESPN:
Teammates vouch for teammates all the time. Under most circumstances, that’s all this would be.
But this reads more like a threat.
Enjoy your max contract, Tristan.
