After nine seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers who drafted him, Thompson has come to terms on a two-year pact with Boston, worth $19 million.

Thompson averaged 12.0 points and 10.7 rebounds per game for the Cavs and will immediately arrive in Boston as one of the team’s top frontcourt options.

Thompson earned $18.5 million in 2019-20, the final year of a five-year pact he signed with the team back in 2015.
