Kings’ Thompson Eager to Compete for Minutes

Entering his sixth season, Jason Thompson is the Kings’ longest-tenured player. So far, he likes what he’s seen from Michael Malone’s coaching staff.
What isn’t different for the 6-foot-11 Thompson is competition for playing time.
In previous years, other bigs the Kings have brought in included J.J. Hickson, Thomas Robinson and Samuel Dalembert.
But Thompson usually finds his way back into the starting lineup.
“I saw a list of all the guys I’ve had competition with, and for the most part, I’m the last man standing,” he said. “It always motivates me to keep working 10 times harder in the offseason. We’ll see what happens. I’m not sure how the rotation is going to be, but it’s usually a three big-man rotation, usually with successful teams. We’ll see what happens.”
