Jason Thompson's decision to re-sign with the Kings this month wasn't breaking news nationally.
But then again, most of Thompson's basketball career hasn't been about him making headlines.
On a team full of what coach Keith Smart describes as alpha males trying to define their place atop the team hierarchy, Thompson prefers simply to fit in and do the little things not associated with star players.
The Kings re-signed Thompson to a five-year contract worth $30.2 million shortly after the NBA moratorium on transactions ended at midnight July 11.
Schedules finally allowed for the Kings to hold a press conference Friday to discuss Thompson's new deal at Bella Bru Cafe near Power Balance Pavilion.
Thompson was the Kings' top priority this offseason after making the four-year veteran a restricted free agent.
Thompson says he is excited about the direction of the Kings under Smart, who is entering his first full season, and is ready to contribute wherever needed.
