CLEVELAND (AP) — Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert all received qualifying offers from Cleveland on Tuesday, meaning the Cavaliers can match any offers those players get from other clubs this summer.
Thompson is of particular importance to the Cavaliers, who went to the NBA Finals this past season. He has appeared in 308 consecutive games, has averaged 10.1 points and 8.4 rebounds over his career and saw his stock soar by averaging 9.6 points and 10.8 rebounds in this year’s playoffs.
Dellavedova had big playoff moments, with seven double-figure games. Shumpert started 16 playoff games for the Cavs, who lost the finals to Golden State 4-2.
Also Wednesday, the Cavaliers said forward Mike Miller exercised his $2.85-million option for next season. Miller averaged 2.1 points in limited action this season.
