Koby Altman Says There’s ‘Mutual Interest’ In Keeping Tristan Thompson

Koby Altman said that there was “mutual interest” in the Cleveland Cavaliers re-signing Tristan Thompson.

“I think it’s fair to say there’s mutual interest for sure. He’s been with this franchise his entire career since we drafted him. He’s won a championship here.

“Obviously, he means a lot to the players on the team right now, but it has to make sense. There are some events coming up — the draft, free agency — where we have to see if it makes sense for him. He’s earned the right to be an unrestricted free agent and explore opportunities at this point in his career,” said Altman.

The 29-year-old Thompson is an unrestricted free agent.

A source added that he was “50-50” on returning to the Cavs, though those odds have increased with the uncertainty surrounding next season’s cap.

Thompson is currently one of four Cavs players not attending voluntary workouts.
