Nice piece from The Bee by Jason Jones talking about Jason Thompson’s brother, who just tried out for the Kings:
“It was really awkward coming off the plane and the first thing I see is a little billboard with him on it,” Ryan said of his brother, Kings forward Jason Thompson. “It’s like, ‘Wow.’ “
Ryan, a 6-foot-6 guard from Rider, was happy with his workout. It’s the first of two the Kings will host this week featuring six draft hopefuls each.
Ryan has the advantage of having his older brother, just two years removed from the draft process, for advice.
“It’s a grueling process,” Jason said via phone. “And this process prepares you for the league. The workouts are the most important thing.”
