Like Buddy Hield, Tristan Thompson could never wear the Pacers jersey… Arrived in the exchange between Domantas Sabonis and Tyrese Haliburton, the former NBA champion does not want to play for a bottom team. And this even if he arrives from Sacramento…
According to Basketballnews,Tristan Thompson would not intend to wear the jersey of the Pacers, and his agent will negotiate a “buyout”. At 30, the Canadian still has good years ahead of him, but in the immediate future, he does not want to participate in a reconstruction. He has already given with the Cavaliers.
Free agent at the end of the season, Tristan Thompson did not bring much to the Kings with 6 points and 5 rebounds on average. Never has he played so little in his career, and never has he been so insignificant in the game.
A priori, Indiana will not do the forcing, and if the two parties agree on a breach of contract, Tristan Thompson could become a free agent, and strengthen a title candidate.
Buy-out : amicable breach of contract. The player is released from his contract with severance pay which can reach the totality of the rest of his contract. The player then becomes a free agent, and can sign elsewhere.
