With free agency beginning late tonight, we were able to catch up with Sacramento Kings free agent big man Jason Thompson for a special free agency edition of the Cowbell Kingdom podcast.
Thompson on friend and teammate Donté Greene, who announced via twitter on Wednesday that he won’t be returning to the Kings next season:
Donté is like one of my brothers, especially on the team and off the court as well. This is the one thing that we haven’t really talked about with each other, just because the NBA is a business and you know, when you get to contracts and things like that, you want the best for them as a person, rather than the basketball aspect of it. Because it is our job and that’s what some people don’t realize. It’s a tough situation for both of us, but that’s just the business of the NBA.
Listen after the jump…
