"If God had wanted women to play ball, he would've made them men."
The only news here is that another NBA team actually wants him...
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.
Haven't seen him play much, but his career numbers seem decent enough, rotation worthy. Why'd they cut him? Knucklehead?
Doesn't play defense,doesn't pass the ball, doesn't produce within the flow of a game.
The guy just isn't very good.
Similar thing can be said most of the time about guys who are waived/bought out this time of year.
The guy is already 27 years old, I just don't see the point in bringing him in. He isn't really an upgrade over what we have. And he's not young enough to have much upside. Just another journeyman.
