The Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors are expected to pursue Tristan Thompson in free agency.

Thompson is coming off a five-year, $82 million contract signed during the 2015 offseason.

The Cavaliers held onto Thompson at the trade deadline with the possibility of re-signing him in the offseason.

Thompson has obvious ties to the Lakers given his history playing with LeBron James and as a Klutch Sports client. Thompson is also a native of Toronto.
