CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James calls teammate Tristan Thompson's contract stalemate with the Cavaliers "a distraction."

Thompson has not reported to training camp as he remains in a holdout for a long-term deal. His agent, Rich Paul, and the Cavs have not been able to reach an agreement over the past few months. Paul also represents James.

James says he spoke to Thompson at a wedding in Miami on Saturday, but the two did not discuss the ongoing contract squabble.
