Net Worth

As of 2022, Tristan Thompson’s net worth is estimated to be around $50 million. This year, as a member of the Sacramento Kings, Thompson will earn $9,720,900. It’s also been reported that Thompson is endorsed by brands such as Beats by Dre, Mountain Dew, and Nike.

Believe it or not, because he has 3.3 million followers on Instagram and Twitter, Thompson reportedly makes between $6 million and $10 million for every post. Currently in his 11th NBA season, the Canadian has surpassed $115 million in career earnings.

In nine years playing for the Cavaliers, he reeled in over $95 million, excluding his endorsements. Meanwhile, he made roughly $9.2 million with the Boston Celtics in 2020 and will become an unrestricted free agent after this season concludes.

Early Life

Tristan Thompson was born on March 13, 1991, in Brampton, Ontario to parents Trevor and Andrea. Both of his parents hail from Jamaica. Thompson delivered newspapers growing up and he has three brothers by the names of Daniel, Dishawn, and Amari.

After his freshman year of high school, Thompson sought out better talent to play with and against, thus moving to Newark, New Jersey to play at St. Benedict’s Preparatory School. He instantly shined, so much so he catapulted to the top of his class heading into his junior year.

The highly-touted recruit transferred to Findlay Prep to finish out his high school career following several heated arguments with members of St. Benedict’s coaching staff. After a successful senior season, Thompson was named a Mcdonald’s All-American.

College Career

Thompson played just one year at Texas, but it was a very good one. Averaging 13.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, the big man won Big-12 Freshman of the Year honors. He helped lead the Longhorns to a 28-8 record which concluded with a Round of 32 exit in the NCAA Tournament.

Thompson was selected by the Cavaliers with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. In the 2011 lockout year, Thompson appeared in 60 of the 66 games, averaging 8.2 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. That was efficient enough for him to make the All-NBA Rookie Second Team.

Thompson would play in all 82 games the next four seasons, speaking to his durability. During that span, he averaged 9.9 points and 8.9 rebounds per contest. In the final of those fours years (2015-16), the Cavs won the NBA Championship, making a historic 3-1 comeback against the Golden State Warriors.

The following year, Thompson became the first player in franchise history to play in 400 consecutive regular-season games. The big man was a fan favorite due to his bruising style of play and dependability.

Just prior to the 2020 season, Thompson signed with the Boston Celtics on a two-year, $19 million deal. He would later be traded to the Sacramento Kings before the kickoff of the 2021 season. In 15 games off the bench, he’s averaging 5.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game (both career lows).
