The Cleveland Cavaliers are having a great season so far, even though they had a rough start to the 2017-18 campaign. They won just five of their first 12 games, but they've managed to turn it around. The Cavs are now at the second spot in the Eastern Conference standings with a 20-8 record, despite the fact that they are still missing some of their key players. Derrick Rose has played just seven games for the Cavaliers this season due to an ankle injury, while Isaiah Thomas has yet to play a single game in a Cavs uniform.

Tristan Thompson had also missed 19 games this season before making his return on Tuesday night against the Hawks.

Thompson has fully recovered from a calf strain and the Cavaliers are now faced with another big issue - how to use Thompson and how will he fit in their lineup?

What's next for Thompson and Cavs?

The Cavaliers are also expecting to have Isaiah Thomas back in the lineup in the next couple of days, as they look to finally have a full and healthy roster this season. But with all this being said, and the Cavs playing so well lately, their head coach Tyronn Lue will have to make some adjustments. Obviously, it is expected that Isaiah Thomas will be their starting point guard once he returns from injury, but the bigger issue is what to do with Tristan Thompson.

So far, the "experiment" of playing Kevin Love at the center position has played out well for the Cavaliers, but what should they do with it when Thompson is back in the lineup?

Should Tyronn Lue insert Tristan in the starting lineup at the center position and move Love to power forward? Or should he keep things the way they are now? These are all questions Tyronn Lue will have to answer as soon as possible, and many are wondering if the Cavaliers will use Tristan Thompson as an asset in a potential blockbuster trade?

Sam Amico of thinks so.

Will Thompson be traded this season?

Sam Amico of was recently a guest on the 92.3 The Fan Radio and he talked about the Cavaliers and what should they do with Tristan Thompson.

Amico went on to share some interesting thoughts on the current state of the Cavaliers, and one of the things he said might cause some drama around the NBA world.

He said that he believes Tristan Thompson does not fit with the Cavs style of play but he also complimented his defense and agility. Amico also mentioned how well Channing Frye has been playing lately and mentioned the possibility of Tristan Thompson being traded this season: "You don't mess with success. I frankly think that they (Cavaliers) will, at some point, look to deal him (Thompson). He doesn't always fit their style."

This just adds to the speculations surrounding the Cavaliers and a potential trade that will include the 26-year old Thompson. The 6-foot-9 Thompson is averaging a career-low 3.9 points per game this season for the Cavaliers and the team has played well so far without him in the lineup. It will be interesting to see how this situation in Cleveland develops.
