Thompson and teammate Carl Landry are headed to Philadelphia to clear cap space for the Kings. He averaged 6.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 25 minutes per game during the 2014-15 season. He played in 81 of the 82 regular season games.

Thompson averaged 6.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.7 blocks, and 0.4 steals in 25 minutes per game during 81 regular season games in the 2014-15 season.

Thompson started 63 games in 2014-15 and continued to be an asset to the Kings' rotation. He exploded for 23 points and 22 rebounds in a January matchup with the Clippers, both of which were season highs. Thompson's contract with the Kings goes through the 2016-17 season. He is unlikely to hold consistent standard-league fantasy value next season.

Thompson scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 FT) with 10 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 32 minutes during Monday's win over the Lakers.

With DeMarcus Cousins sidelined with a variety of lower body injuries, Thompson has had some modest fantasy value. He should be a solid play on Wednesday in the Kings' regular season finale, the second game of a home-and-home against the Lakers.

Thompson started at center for DeMarcus Cousins who was out with a foot injury and scored 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-2 FT) with 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

It seems very unlikely that Cousins will return again for the remaining few matches, so if you are in need of some scoring and rebounding then Thompson is a pretty good option.

Thompson scored 18 points (7-7 FG, 4-4 FT) with three rebounds, two assists and a block in 24 minutes off the bench Monday.

He's been getting fairly steady minutes in the Kings' frontcourt since George Karl took the reins, but Thompson isn't likely to have another perfect shooting night any time soon. He can safely be left on your waiver wire in most leagues.

Thompson contributed seven points, seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in just 14 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Thompson lost his spot in the starting lineup to Carl Landry and it's still unclear whether or not this will be a permanent fixture moving forward. Either way, Thompson is only averaging 23.4 minutes over his last 20 games, relegating his viability to deeper leagues.
