Jason Thompson's future with the Kings

6

Jason Thompson had a prominent role on the Kings during his first two seasons in the NBA, but his time and production have fallen off this year. He averaged 12.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1 block and played 31.4 minutes, while starting 58 of 75 games during the 2009-10 season. In 2010-11 his averages are 8.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 0.6 blocks. He is also averaging 22.4 minutes and has started 39 of his 59 games. Does Thompson think he'll be a member of the organization next season? "You never know (what the future holds)," Thompson told the Burlington County Times. "You always want to have that storybook ending where you spent 10-plus years with the team that drafted you and it ends with more success. It's not like that all the time. For me, it's going to be an interesting off-season. I'm looking forward to the exit meetings (after the finale) to see what direction they're going to go." Thompson will be entering his fourth year in the NBA next season and he is scheduled to make about $3 million. The Kings have been searching for a point guard and they could try to acquire one around the draft by shipping out Thompson, who still has value around the league. -- Nick Borges
