Free-agent centre Tristan Thompson has reportedly reached an agreement with the Boston Celtics on a two-year, $19-million deal, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Thompson leaves the Cavaliers after an eight-season run with Cleveland, which drafted him fourth overall in 2011. Per Vardon, the Celtics offered Thompson more money than the Celtics this offseason.

With Thompson headed to the Boston Celtics, Kevin Love sent a heartfelt message to Thompson on social media.

Even though he wasn't scoring 20 points per game, Tristan Thompson made his contributions on the glass and in areas that couldn't be found in the box score. He'll factor into the "big man" spot in the Celtics rotation with Daniel Theis and Robert Williams. He finishes his Cavs career with averages of 9.4 points and 8.7 rebounds in 619 games and was part of the 2016 team that won the title over the Golden State Warriors in seven epic games.

Last season, Thompson joined team legends LeBron James, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Brad Daugherty as the only Cavaliers to record 5,000 or more rebounds with the team. He took a career-high 23 3-pointers last season, making a career-high nine of them.
