Tristan Thompson Thinks Raptors Will Offer Him Max Deal Next Season

Cavs big man Tristan Thompson is preparing to bet on himself, and he believes he’ll have the perfect suitors for his services next summer.

Tristan Thompson reportedly rejected a five-year, $80 million contract offer from the Cavaliers at the start of free agency, and according to Rich Bucher of Bleacher Report, Thompson believes the Raptors will appreciate his services.

A league source tells me that his agent, Rich Paul, has already made it clear to the Cleveland Cavaliers that Thompson will not sign a long-term deal unless it is a max deal. And otherwise, he is prepared to sign a one-year qualifying offer with the additional knowledge, according to the source, that Paul believes that he can get a max deal with the Raptors next summer.

Thompson isn’t worth a max deal, but the beauty is in the eye of the Raptors. The Toronto born Thompson would provide Toronto with a rugged, rebounding machine.
