One opposing general manager told he has heard Toronto, Houston and Dallas are among those interested in Tristan Thompson. But the GM added he did not receive that information specifically from those teams, and that his speculation was based on “just your typical shop talk.”

Entering Monday, Thompson has appeared in 48 games for the Cavs this season. He's averaging 11.9 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists while shooting 50.8 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 63.8 percent from the free-throw line.

The Cavs will miss the playoffs again this season. The future of the franchise is Collin Sexton, Cedi Osman, Darius Garland, Kevin Porter Jr. and Larry Nance Jr., so it is understandable why the team would want to trade their veterans in exchange for assets.

The Rockets are trying to trade Clint Capela, but they want to get a center in return. A three-team deal involving Capela and Thompson could be in play.

The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday.
