Report: Cleveland Cavaliers centre Tristan Thompson has been made available on the trade market

The Cleveland Cavaliers have made Canadian centre Tristan Thompson available on the trade market, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reports.

A number of centres have reportedly become available ahead of the Thursday, Feb. 6 deadline with Thompson joining Houston Rockets' Clint Capela, Detroit Pistons' Andre Drummond and Sacramento Kings' Dewayne Dedmon on the market.

The 28-year-old is having a career-year averaging 11.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game and would be a great asset for any contender looking for an interior presence with championship experience.

Within Haynes' report, he also states the Cavaliers are in "asset accumulation mode", as they were already rumoured to be shopping forward Kevin Love earlier this season.

Thompson is in the final year of his five-year, $82 million contract.
