He stayed with Cleveland until the end of the 2019-2020 season, after which he ventured into free agency, signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics for $19 million

His stint in Boston was brief, leading to a trade to the Sacramento Kings and subsequently to the Indiana Pacers, with whom he reached a buyout agreement after just four games.

Thompson’s career saw another chapter when he signed with the Chicago Bulls for a year, followed by a short tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers, which positioned him closer to his ex, Khloé Kardashian, and their two children. 

In 2023, Thompson made a full circle back to the Cavaliers with a one-year contract. However, his career faced hurdles, including a 25-game suspension due to a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs and legal challenges over child support payments.

Thompson, who has three children from previous relationships, encountered legal troubles when he was ordered to pay $57,916 in back child support to Maralee Nichols, the mother of his son Theo, born in December 2021. This came after a paternity test confirmed his fatherhood, amidst his relationship with Khloé Kardashian with whom he was planning to expand their family through surrogacy.

Beyond his personal and professional life, Thompson took on the responsibility of guardianship for his youngest brother, Amari, who suffers from epilepsy, following the death of their mother in January 2023.
