Cavaliers Remove Tristan Thompson Signage and Merchandise From the Q

The Cavs seem to be wasting no time in trying to wipe forward Tristan Thompson from their memories, as the team spent part of Friday removing Thompson’s likeness from any signage that adorns Quicken Loans Arena, including the elevators.

Thompson became an ‘official’ holdout on Friday when he failed to ink his qualifying offer by midnight on Thursday night. The standstill seems to not being nearing an end anytime soon as long as Thompson sits out wanting a max contract, something he isn’t going to get from the Cavs at this point it appears.

“We got a veteran group,” Cavs coach David Blatt said Friday.

“We got a very professional group of guys going about their business and going about their jobs the way that they should. The team is working and we are going to continue to do so.”

The move to get rid of all Thompson-related merchandise from both the online and the arena team store is another strong message that the team is not going to play ball with the forward.

Many seem to feel the Cavs are in the right in this situation, whether Thompson eventually feels the same way remains to be seen.
