1495 Sports is proud to bring the following interview with Sacramento Kings Forward Jason Thompson.

Thompson is a native of Mount Laurel Township, NJ and a graduate of Rider University. The forward was selected out of the First Round (12th overall pick) in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Kings.

With the Broncs,  Thompson was one of three NCAA players in 2006-07 to average 20 points and 10 rebounds-per- game. In 2008 he was able to lead Rider to the Metro Atlantic Athletic (MAAC) Tournament finale against Siena College. Though the Broncs lost, they did eventually get an invite to the inaugural College Basketball Invitational.

During the 2014-15 Season he averages 5.7 points-per-game (.464 FG%, 0-1 3pt, .628 FT%), 6.4 rebounds-per-game, 1.0 assist-per-game and 24.9 minutes-per-game in 56 games.

In his seventh year with the team Thompson is third on games played in Sacramento era (516), trailing only Peja Stojakovic (518) and Mitch Richmond (517).

For the past three years Thompson has helped the future of the NBA via his JT Elite Basketball Camp. There have been several successful camps run both in the city of Sacramento as well as his Alma mater.

In addition to helping to shape future NBA players, Thompson also has made a positive impact in the community via the Jason Thompson Foundation, which was created to promote a healthy lifestyle for children and young adults.
