Tristian Thompson Signs With Boston Celtics: Report

Recommended Posts

Free-agent center Tristan Thompson has reportedly signed with the Boston Celtics, opting not to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to  Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Haynes was informed of Thompson's decision by his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.

The deal will provide Thompson with $19 million over two years. The Cavs big-man was signed to a 5-year deal with $82,000,000 previously.

For his prolific rebounding ability, Thompson was a highly sought after free agent. The NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly interested in bringing the former LeBron James teammate to L.A. "The Lakers would love to land Tristan Thompson, an ex-LeBron James teammate in Cleveland who would shore up the front line," Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reported earlier this week. Thompson provided the Cavs with a critically important presence in the paint during their 2016 NBA Finals win.

Thompson averaged 12.0 points and 10.1 rebounds in the 2019-20 NBA Season, making him a great addition for the Celtics. According to ESPN Stats & Info, no Celtics player has averaged above 10 rebounds for an entire season since Al Jefferson in 2006-07. That was the longest active drought in the NBA. 

The 2021 NBA Season is set to tip-off in December, later this year.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
