Thompson scores 18 in debut

Pretty impressive stuff from Jason Thompson, who had 18 points and 10 rebounds Wednesday in his Sacramento Kings debut, a 98-96 loss to Minnesota.

Here's a snippet of the AP game story:
The Kings surprised many by taking Thompson out of little-known Rider with the 12th pick in the draft. He was the first college senior taken, ahead of bigger names like Georgetown center Roy Hibbert, Kansas guard Brandon Rush and LSU forward Anthony Randolph.

Thompson was impressive in his debut, muscling the small Minnesota front line and creating second chances for the Kings.
