NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Locked on Cavaliers, the official Cleveland Cavaliers podcast of the Locked on Podcast network.

So, what’s up with Tristan Thompson, and how is he best used moving forward with Larry Nance Jr. around? On today’s show, host Chris Manning (@cwmwrites) talks to The Athletic’s David Zavac (@davidzavac) about the difference between Thompson now and when he was at his best (2:05), whether starting Nance over him makes sense (16:35) and what his ideal role is on the Cavs once Kevin Love returns (27:14).
