“American Sniper,” a new film directed by Clint Eastwood, will star Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper and…Jason Thompson? The seventh-year Kings power forward/center has been recalibrating a mortar shot of his own this offseason. “You will see me shooting 3s. I’ll be shooting the 3 with a different type of arsenal,” Thompson told Cowbell Kingdom. Cowbell Kingdom

“Trade talk happens before the draft,” Thompson said at his camp Tuesday morning. “But I’m a man, I’m true to my word and regardless of what happens I still want to keep it out here. I still have a lot of support.” Thompson, 27, is the longest-tenured King as he prepares to enter his seventh season, which also means he’s been mired in Sacramento’s losing ways more than his teammates. His contract has three years and more than $19 million left, and Thompson understands he will be involved in trade talk. Sacramento Bee

Thompson said he doesn’t ask general manager Pete D’Alessandro about potential trades and where he fits in the Kings’ plans. “You just control what you can control,” Thompson said. “All I can do is worry about what I can do ... my job and Pete and everyone else do theirs.” Sacramento Bee

Nevertheless, I'm told the Kings are looking to buy good players, not sell them. But the Kings don't have a lot of assets that people covet at the moment. Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson, Jimmer Fredette and Carl Landry would all be available for teams making a run at the playoffs, but no one is beating down the doors for those guys. ESPN.com
