At one point this season, Tristan Thompson was interested in signing an extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

That has changed and Thompson's camp would like him to be traded by the Cavaliers by the deadline. People close to Thompson are calling a trade a "priority."

Thompson is represented by Klutch Sports Group.

Thompson is in the final season of a five-year, $82 million contract he signed as a restricted free agent in 2015.

Any team acquiring Thompson would also get his Bird Rights.
