What hasn’t been discussed is a contract extension for him (Tristan Thompson)– at least not yet. The two sides haven’t really discussed numbers, one source involved in the process said recently, but that isn’t a surprise. Kyrie Irving is the only member of the 2011 class thus far to sign an extension, although guys like Klay Thompson, Kenneth Faried and Kawhi Leonard could be next. The deadline to sign is Oct. 31.

A big extension for Thompson, coupled with Kyrie Irving’s max contract, would’ve crippled the Cavs’ salary cap prior to the return of LeBron James and acquisition of Kevin Love. Now assuming both of those guys remain with the Cavs long term, this team’s payroll will explode high into the luxury tax stratosphere, meaning the Cavs won’t have cap space with or without a Thompson extension.
