Jason Thompson (TOR) – “JT” 

(Cary Edmondson/USA TODAY Sports)


Power Forward: 6’11, 250 lbs; 8th year, Rider | Career: 9.4 points/game, 6.9 rebounds/game, 50% FG

JT is finally on a contender after struggling to get wins in Sacramento for many, many years; should compete with Patrick Patterson for minutes at the backup front court spots; doesn’t have a pretty-looking J but JT can step out and hit long ones every now and again; a sometimes finisher in the restricted area; very good at keeping possessions alive, which may be enough to earn minutes at the backend of Dwane Casey’s rotation
