Al Thornton waived by Washington | Heading to the Warriors?
The Wizards have waived forward Al Thornton after coming to an agreement on a contract buyout.
From the news release:
"The additions of Rashard Lewis and Mo Evans combined with Josh Howard's return from injury gave us a logjam at the small forward spot," said [team President Ernie] Grunfeld. "Coming to terms on a contract buyout with Al was mutually beneficial, as it allows us to clear space in the rotation and allows him the chance to pursue an opportunity with another team."
Thornton was originally acquired from the L.A. Clippers in a three-team, six-player deal on February 17, 2010. He appeared 49 games for the Wizards this season, averaging 8.0 points and 3.2 rebounds.
Re: Al Thornton waived by Washington | Heading to the Warriors?
I wouldn't mind the Pacers picking him up for the rest of the season. I realize they'd have to cut someone like Solo, but Thornton is more productive than Solo. With Dun out for the rest of the year, Thornton could play some SF b/u minutes and has better size than either Dahbtay and Rush.
It won't happen, but for the rest of the season I'd take the chance.
