Report: Tristan Thompson to sign two-year deal with the Boston Celtics

CLEVELAND, OHIO - OCTOBER 26: Tristan Thompson #13 of the Cleveland Cavaliers celebrates after a dunk against the Indiana Pacers during the first half at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on October 26, 2019 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Instead, the Celtics chose to sign Thompson to a two-year deal, with his rebounding ability helping complement a lineup that ended up reaching the Eastern Conference finals this past season.

Roscosmos has had the job of ferrying United States astronauts to the ISS since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011. The journey marks the first time a Soyuz crew has taken the fast-track, two-orbit rendezvous path to the space station.


Per the Athletic's Joe Vardon, Thompson's deal is for two years and $19 million - likely Boston's full non-taxpayer mid-level exception.

Even though he wasn't scoring 20 points per game, Tristan Thompson made his contributions on the glass and in areas that couldn't be found in the box score. Thompson will join Daniel Theis and the Time Lord Robert Williams in the Celtics' big man rotation. He took a career-high 23 3-pointers last season, making a career-high nine of them.
