The Lakers and the Raptors are two of the teams that are expected to pursue Tristan Thompson in free agency.

The big man of the Cleveland Cavaliers is an unrestricted free agent as his contract with the Cavs expired.

“The Lakers would love to land Tristan Thompson, an ex-LeBron James teammate in Cleveland who would shore up the front line.

The Raptors, who could lose both Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka, are expected to pursue the Toronto-born big man. With Andre Drummond opting into the final year of his contract, Thompson’s time with the Cavs could be over,” Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.

Thompson has spent his entire career with the Cavaliers.

The NBA will open free agency this Friday, November 20.
