Unfamiliar ring for ex-King Jason Thompson

Jason Thompson will watch his teammates receive NBA championship rings Tuesday night. The Warriors obtained Thompson to trim payroll and add a big body (6-foot-11) to replace David Lee. “He’s going to help us,” interim head coach Luke Walton said. Thompson, incidentally, ranks fifth on the all-time list for most regular-season games without a playoff appearance. The Warriors also plan to honor Spencer Stone, one of three Sacramento-area men who helped thwart a terrorist attack on a train in France in August. Ron Kroichick is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
