The only way Thompson to Toronto seemed viable was if Thompson took the Cavs’ qualifying offer last summer, which would’ve made him an unrestricted free agent next year. He said Wednesday he didn’t have much interest in that. “I never thought about it,” he said. “My whole thing was to focus on getting better and whenever my situation was handled, my business was handled, that’s when I was going to get back on the court. Whenever it was, so be it. I’m glad it’s here in Cleveland.”
Whatever the reason, one thing’s become clear through these first 12 games: James is more of an ally for Blatt than perhaps at any point last season. “I think whenever you work with someone over a year, over time, you understand them,” said Tristan Thompson, comparing the relationship between James and Blatt from last season to know. “You know, the first year you might have times where one might not say something to the other, just because it’s new. You might hesitate sometimes, but as you get older, you build a relationship, build chemistry. The understanding is there.”
