Players Approach Kings Milestones

Find out which Kings players have surpassed key career marks during the 2012-13 season and more.

With four games remaining in the 2012-13 regular season, several Kings players are on the cusp of moving into the all-time top 10 in numerous Sacramento-era statistical categories – including points, rebounds, blocks and three-pointers – while others have already entered exclusive clubs.

Jason Thompson

After recently passing Peja Stojakovic to move into seventh place in rebounds (2,670), the fifth-year forward is only seven boards shy of surpassing Wayman Tisdale’s sixth-place total.

With 58 blocks in the 2012-13 season, No. 34 has passed Brian Grant, Scot Pollard and Olden Polynice to climb into the top 10 in the category, and needs only three swats to pass Tisdale for eighth place.
