Sacramento, CA - According to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times, the Sacramento Kings are having a tough time adjusting with all of the constant changes that the Kings have been making this season. Sacramento has made a few trades already early on in the season, and according to forward Jason Thompson, it is tough to adjust to the constant changes that are being made.
“Man, it’s been tough. For me, it’s kind of the same stuff that happens every year. New coach, new system, new players.” - Jason Thompson
Jason Thompson is the only player on the Kings’ roster that has been with the team since the 2008 season when the Kings drafted him with their first round pick. He also made it clear that he is intrigued what it would be like to play for another team other than the Kings. There have been rumors this season that the Kings could be looking to trade Thompson for the right price.
“It’s kind of tough because usually the most consistent players and teams have guys that have been together for a long period of time and around the same system. Every year, I’m used differently. All of my teammates over the years give you different advice and tell you how other organizations are. I have been on this team a good amount of years, so there’s nothing, like trade rumors, that I haven’t seen before. If a team wants to get rid of you, another team wants you. It’s good that you’re wanted. You only control what you can control. We’ll see what happens. I’ll play to the best of my abilities no matter how the situation goes.” - Jason Thompson
The Kings have already acquired Derrick Williams and Rudy Gay this season, and have shipped out quite a few players as well. Sacramento seems to move from coach to coach every other year as well, so it is understandable for Thompson to be upset with his current situation. Things seem to be calming down for the Kings’ organization, so it will be interesting to see what ends up happening as the team stays together.
