With contract talks at an impasse for a month, the agent for restricted free-agent forward Tristan Thompson warned the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday that if his client is forced into accepting a one-year contract, the upcoming season will be his last season with the team.

“If [Thompson] is on the qualifying offer, [this] will be his last year with the Cavs,” agent Rich Paul told several media outlets, including ESPN.

The Cavs and Thompson broke off talks in mid-July with Thompson looking for a deal at or near the max contract, roughly $94 million over five years. The Cavs’ offer is currently for significantly less, sources have told ESPN.
