Report: Cavs Not Willing to Give Tristan Thompson Max, But Would Increase Offer
- Updated: September 28, 2015
With news coming from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson did not come to an agreement over the weekend, the 24-year-old is expected to miss Monday’s media day with the Cavs.
“Cavs & Tristan Thompson did not come to a contract agreement over the weekend [and] he is not expected to be at [Monday’s] media day,” reported Windhorst, citing sources. “Neither Cavs or Thompson are framing situation as ‘hold out’ because he has until Thursday, which is Oct. 1, to sign $6.9M qualifying offer,” he added.
In addition, with the two sides continually pulling and tugging, it seems that the Cavaliers are willing to give a little leeway to Thompson and his agent per Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com.
“The Cavaliers view both of the offers the same: They aren’t interested. However, they are willing to up their five-year, $80-million offer, sources informed Northeast Ohio Media Group, but to what extent is unknown at this time,” said Haynes.
Thompson must decide in just a few days whether to accept his qualifying offer or not, as the Cavaliers on the other hand, must wisely time their next offer.
