I know some here somewhat covet him. Personally I think he's a solid player who can play either frontcourt spot, but I'm not convinced he's any kind of missing piece. I want a BIG piece added. Anyway, my mistake if this has been common knowledge, but Sacramento's apparently officially looking to move him now, per ESPN's Marc Stein.
Thompson is averaging just 15.4 minutes per game off the bench and has been shopped by the Kings, who according to one source with knowledge of the talks offered the 6-11, 250-pounder to Atlanta in a deal featuring young point guard Jeff Teague. The Hawks declined.Weekend Dime, Bullet #1
Regardless of how much we think that deal makes sense for either team, it sets a precedent for what Sacto would want for him, a young guard that's shown...really not much. That's a pretty cheap price to be honest.
