Jason Thompson is done playing small forward. But Thomas Robinson? From Jason Jones at The Bee's Kings blog:
Don't rule out Thomas Robinson seeing time at small forward during the preseason. During one 5-on-5 session, Robinson was the small forward with Chuck Hayes and DeMarcus Cousins the other frontcourt players. Jimmer Fredette and Marcus Thornton were the other players on the squad. That squad beat a team of Isaiah Thomas, John Salmons, Willie Reed, Francisco Garcia and Cyril Awere. The final score was 7-2.
Robinson was also at small forward during the session open to the media Tuesday in Sacramento.
Quickness and athleticism might allow T-Rob to get away with some small forward minutes. I don't think ball-handling or shooting will. If you remember, quickness was Jason Thompson's issue at small forward. At least with the line-up mentioned here, you have two shooters in the backcourt.
