Kings reach out to Ryan Anderson

Things had been pretty quiet in terms of free agency until today when the Kings hosted restricted free agent forward Ryan Anderson.

Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie, as promised, began free agency last Saturday by reaching out Jason Thompson’s agent, Leon Rose.

“Our first phone call was to Leon about Jason,” Petrie said. “We talked …and put a proposal in front of him and we’ve made a number of calls on different players. And today we had lunch with Ryan Anderson. We’re continuing to monitor things. Restricted free agency on both sides is a little bit different.”

Anderson and Thompson are both restricted.
