According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, the Kings and Jason Thompson are close to finalizing a verbal agreement on a new contract:

#NBAKings are close to an agreement on a new contract with PF Jason Thompson according to a source.

There’s no word on any financials of the deal, but it was Jones a few days back who mentioned that the Kings offer to Thompson was starting at “about 6″.

Assuming Thompson is re-signed, that leaves little room for Sacramento native and current Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson. Thompson’s re-addition would put the roster at 13 bodies, but more importantly, leave little room for the Kings to offer Anderson a deal Orlando would be uncomfortable matching.
