Latest Update Tristan Thompson with 15 points, 7 rebounds Sat Nov, 15, 11:44 PM
Has a quick bat and makes excellent contact. Also has fairly good speed running the bases. Possesses solid power and has improved his glove work at second base. Is durable.
Flaws: : Doesn't take full advantage of his speed, and could stand to improve his base-stealing ability. Is fairly inconsistent when it comes to hitting home runs and RBI opportunities.
Thompson's roller coaster ride of a season continues, and his scoring will remain inconsistent as long as the Cavs' best players are healthy. He feasts on offensive rebounds and other easy opportunities that may not be there every night. If you can get value back in a trade, trying to sell after one of his better nights might not be a bad plan.Analyst: Paul Moses
There is no indication that this move is permanent, however it is encouraging for fantasy owners who have wanted to see Thompson with the increased minutes in this star-studded starting five. While this appears to be a reward for Thompson, who has played well this season, this should not be viewed as a punishment for Varejao, who has also played well this season. This is most likely a way for the Cavs to give teams a different look who at times can become stagnant on offense this season.Analyst: Dom Murtha
Thompson came back to Earth in some respects on Tuesday night. Although he scored 10 points and grabbed eight boards, his minutes dropped from 36 on Friday against the Bulls to 22 on Tuesday night. He also was only 4-for-12 from the field which is disheartening for fantasy owners who are relying on Thompson to make the most of his minimal opportunities in what is an already crowded Cavs team with stars who are looking for their shot first over Thompson's.Analyst: Dom Murtha
Kendrick is coming off another solid season where he hit .293 with 85 runs, seven home runs, 75 RBI and 14 stolen bases. I would think their would be a market for Kendrick given his ability to hit for a high average and drive in runs from the second base position while providing solid defense. Freese hit .260 in his first season with 53 runs, 10 home runs and 53 RBI while dealing with both injuries and a platoon that limited him to 134 games.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
