Heading into just his second season, Tristan Thompson is already thinking about a leadership role on the Cavaliers.

“I think I need to take a bigger leadership role,” Thompson said Tuesday while in Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League. “(With) Kyrie and myself coming in here we’ve got a lot of young guys so we’re almost like the veterans.

“We’ve got to come in here and show them the ropes, show them right from wrong, really build chemistry.”

Thompson plans to stay in Cleveland this summer to work with teammates and the Cavaliers coaching staff.
