Jason Thompson Is Ready For A New Start

Thompson spoke to Liberty Ballers about his time in Sacramento, and future in Philadelphia. Jason Thompson's NBA career has been about as far from picturesque as you can possibly get. The longest tenured player in Kings history has seen it all during his seven years in Sacramento: 385 losses, seven different head coaches, two owners, and constant threats to re-locate the team.

During his 2008-09 rookie season the Kings were still only two years removed from the playoffs. Since then?

Kings trade Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Nik Stauskas to Philadelphia 76ers

The Kings just created a ton of cap space with one move. The Sacramento Kings have emerged from their free agency slumber and pulled the trigger on a trade that sends Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, and Nik Stauskas to the Philadelphia 76ers.
