This will be Tristan Thompson’s second season in the NBA with the Cleveland Cavaliers and he’s ready to step it up a notch.
“I think I need to take a bigger leadership role,” Thompson said Tuesday while in Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League. “With Kyrie and myself coming in here we’ve got a lot of young guys so we’re almost like the veterans.
“We’ve got to come in here and show them the ropes, show them right from wrong, really build chemistry.”
Thompson became the highest-ever Canadian draft pick when he was selected #4 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
