David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Source: NBA veteran Jason Thompson, split last season with Warriors and Raptors, finalized a deal in China with Shandong.
This will be it as Raptors for James Johnson and Jason Thompson and likely for Luis Scola and Biyombo as well. Ujiri and the front office have a ninth pick to either put on the trade market or use to draft a key part of the future.

Shams Charania: The Toronto Raptors are waiving forward Anthony Bennett to sign veteran Jason Thompson for the season, league sources tell The Vertical.
Mitchell said the Wolves will be patient while released players sign with teams aimed at the playoffs. They can wait and hope that a veteran — such as power forward Jason Thompson, perhaps — is available or sign one of the D League’s top big men. “After the dust settles, there are going to be some guys out there we’ll want to look at,” Mitchell said. “You don’t want to do it too fast because you don’t want to fill a spot and then someone becomes available. There are only so many playoff teams and only so many roster spots.”
If the Heat waits until March 7/8, the Heat will consider players from a list it has compiled –– one that includes Dorell Wright, Wroten, Jordan Crawford, Jason Thompson, D-League players and some others likely to be available.
Olympiacos also has Jason Thompson who got cut by the Golden State Warriors, as an alternative choice, if the deal with Bargnani does not happen.
At this point, Bargnani is not eager to return to Europe and finish the season in Euroleague. However, Olympiacos has only hours in order to add a player before the end of the Euroleague transfer deadline and the Greeks are making a run on him. That’s why Thompson is also on their radar.
Zach Lowe: Not sure if anyone has reported yet, but Warriors WILL use the stretch provision to spread J Thompson’s $2.68M for 16-17 over 3 seasons.
Marc J. Spears: The Warriors cut forward Jason Thompson to make roster room for Anderson Varejao, a source said.
