Suns ship Isaiah Thomas to Celtics for Thornton, first-rounder
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Minutes after shipping embattled guard Goran Dragic to Miami before Thursday's deadline, the Suns traded Isaiah Thomas to the Celtics for guard Marcus Thornton and a 2016 first-round pick acquired from the Cleveland, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The Celtics announced the deal Thursday night.
Thomas, 26, averaged career-highs of 20.3 points and 6.3 assists last season for the Kings before he finalized a sign-and-trade to the Suns in the offseason. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound point guard is in the first year of a four-year contract that pays him $27.5 million over the duration of the deal. He averaged 15.2 points and 3.7 assists in 46 games in his first season in Phoenix. He shot 42.6 percent from the field, and 39.1 percent from downtown before the trade.
"Isaiah is a dynamic offensive player whose scoring and playmaking abilities add to an already well-rounded backcourt with Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. "We are excited to welcome Isaiah to the Celtics family."
Thornton averaged 8.9 points through 39 games with the Celtics.
Celtics SG Marcus Thornton scores 17 points vs. Nuggets
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/4/15) Celtics shooing guard Marcus Thornton shared the team scoring lead Wednesday, tallying 17 points on 5 of 9 shooting, including 4 of 5 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 104-100 win over the Nuggets.
Thornton was able to do his damage in just 20 minutes of play, but Wednesday's win was just the second time in his last nine games he's seen 20 minutes of action, making his scoring largely inconsistent on a game-by-game basis. He also chipped in five rebounds and two steals in the win. The Celtics will square off with the 76ers Friday.
Report: Teams interested in Celtics' Thornton, but not his salary
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) With the Celtics active in the trade market, guard Marcus Thornton is garnering a lot of interest from teams, sources told Yahoo Sports. However, with Thornton under contract for $8.6 million, teams are uneasy of acquiring the financial obligation.
In 24 games, Thornton is averaging 7.6 points and 1.4 rebounds.
Celtics guard Marcus Thornton to return on Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/7/15) Celtics guard Marcus Thornton will return to action on Wednesday.
Thornton has been sidelined since December 12 due to a calf injury. He was initially considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's game, but will attempt to fight through the issue. Thornton was averaging 8.2 points per game before he got hurt.
Celtics list Thornton, Nelson as game-time decisions Wednesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/7/15) Celtics coach Brad Stevens said guards Marcus Thornton and Jameer Nelson will be game-time decisions for Wednesday’s game against the Nets.
Thornton has not played since Dec. 12 after suffering a calf injury, while Nelson has missed the last two games while dealing with an ankle injury.
The Celtics are 5-point underdogs to the Nets.
|After failing to do much in the first half of the season with the Kings, Marcus Thornton found his calling as an instant offense guy off the bench for the Nets following a trade. Thornton averaged 12.3 points per game in 26 appearances with the Nets, after putting up just 8.3 per game with the Kings. The Nets dumped Thornton's salary on the Celtics this offseason, who might actually have a use for his particular brand of offensive play off the bench, given a roster that finished 26th in points per game and 20th in 3-pointers made last season. Even with a larger role possibly on the way, Thornton doesn't do enough to be worth much more than a late-round pick in the majority of Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
