The Kings had a logjam in their backcourt with Isaiah Thomas, Greivous Vasquez, Ben McLemore, Marcus Thornton, and John Salmons. Then they traded Vasquez and Salmons Sunday in the Rudy Gay trade, but after acquiring Derrick Williams earlier this month, now they're looking at a logjam down low. So the Kings have decided to move another power forward on their roster.

Next up? League sources told that the Kings will be trying to find a new home for forward Jason Thompson, who presumably wouldn't quibble with a fresh start after the arrivals of Gay and Williams to play alongside Cousins.

via Raps, Kings likely not done dealing - Marc Stein Blog - ESPN.

Thompson has nearly $25 million left on the books, and is averaging seven points and six rebounds per game on 47 percent shooting. He still has tremendous value on the trade market, though, with a flexibile contract for a young power forward who can rebound and make shots. He has the skillset you want in a modern power forward.
