Last season for the Cavaliers, Thompson, 24, played in 82 games, starting 15 of them.

He averaged 8.5 points, 8 rebounds and .5 assists per game.

Cavaliers coach David Blatt said LeBron James “absolutely” will be ready for the season opener. James, who got an anti-inflammatory shot in his back last week, didn’t play in the final four preseason games.

The Cavaliers regular season begins next Tuesday when they travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls.
