Tristan Thompson #13 of the Cleveland Cavaliers passes against Klay Thompson #11 of the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 3, 2018 in Oakland, California.

Since the 2019 NBA offseason, rumors have swirled around veteran center Tristan Thompson and his future with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Though Thompson remains a Cavalier after the 2020 February NBA trade deadline, there is no guarantee that Cleveland still considers him part of their long-term plan, especially after they acquired All-Star center Andre Drummond in a trade deal with the Detroit Pistons.
