Coming out of Rider University and being selected in the first round by the Sacramento Kings in the 2008 NBA Draft,Thompson has seen himself fall out of the regular rotation recently. During his rookie year, Thompson averaged 11.1 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 82 appearances (including 56 starts). In 2009-10, Thompson averaged a career-high 12.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in 75 appearances (including 58 starts).
Due to the inflow of new players and coaching changes in Sacramento, Thompson saw his scoring average fall to 8.8 points per game in 2010-11, and as a result, could be a target of those teams that want to add depth in the frontcourt. With the Kings acquiring J.J. Hickson, there may not be enough minutes to go around for DeMarcus Cousins, Hickson and Thompson which means that one of them is likely to be moved.
