Kevin Love tweeted that Tristan Thompson should be a number one priority for the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason.
There is no doubting that the veterans on the Cleveland Cavaliers are close. Kevin Love confirmed that with a tweet Tuesday morning, stating his support for Tristan Thompson staying in Cleveland .
Love says that Thompson should be the number one priority and that he is a leader.
Larry Nance Jr. doubled down on what Love said and added some input of his own.
A player like Tristan Thompson can make a huge impact for any team. Thompson is not the highlight reel that others are in the league, but not many big men like him are. Tristan Thompson can change the game with his effort on the boards offensively and defensively.
If Cleveland were to bring back Tristan Thompson it would require a juggling act of sorts with the rest of the roster. In addition to Thompson, Love, and Nance there is also Andre Drummond. That is a lot of big men on just one team and not just ordinary big men, big men who can make sizable contributions and help teams become contenders. If all of them can buy in to what JB Bickerstaff wants to do and have a four man rotation at the power forward and center position it could work out nicely. If at any point things are not working they would need to move at least one player to try and provide a bit more clarity in that area.
