Tristan Thompson is willing to sign for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The long untied knots appears to be finally resolved, the key being a three-year $53 million deal. Thompson is a restricted free agent and was keen to grab a five-year $94 million max contract.

But Jason Lloyd of Akron Beacon Journal, however, reports that there is no ratified deal between the Cavs and the restricted free agent Thompson. According to Lloyd, the Cavs are not interested in any 3-year deal.

23-year-old Canadian Thompson had his best season for the Cavs in the last edition of NBA. All-Star LeBron James has backed friend Thompson’s cause during the contract dispute with the Cavs management, citing his utility in the team. Both James and Thompson share the same agent Rich Paul.

Things were quiet until Thursday night, when Chris Broussard reported there were specific numbers on the table to help the cause.

If the Cavs finally round up paying huge money to Thompson, they would have to pay a huge luxury tax. The Cavs are eagerly looking for long-term security out of the Thompson deal.
