    Default Kings trying to move Marcus Thornton

    Marcus Thornton was moved to a bench role for three games and then left on the bench entirely with two DNP-CDs in two nights this week.
    Scott Howard-Cooper reported Wednesday that the Kings are being aggressive in trade discussions, looking to offload veterans for prospects and picks.
    Thornton doesn't have an attractive contract, especially for someone who has played poorly enough to be eclipsed by Ben McLemore and Jimmer Fredette within the first 10 games of the season.
    8mil this season 8.5mil next Maloofs

    Thornton has a skill -- scoring -- and not every team expects to have cap space in 2014 anyways. Those will be the teams that could justify Thornton.

    He would be great on the Bucks. Imagine a SG rotation of Mayo, Neal and Thornton?

    Thornton for Butler and Henson. Hm. Maybe Butler, Henson, and a 1st.

    Can't outplay Jimmer Fredette?
    What team wants a player like that?
    Good luck with trade discussions Kings.



    Maybe they should consider buying him out.

    At least they're planning on moving him. Time to clear out the glut and commit to seeing what type of team they have.

    Spurs could use his scoring big time. Bulls too.

    Who is Marcus Thornton and why does he make $8 million a year?

    I'm expecting him to end up going to a team that's not a real competitor but wants a scorer to fill stadiums. Think he could upset the balance on a legit competing team personally.

    Novak is always a tradeable player since he can shoot.

    But more importantly, beggars can't be choosers.
    Not a big market for guys who can't outplay Jimmer Fredette and who make 8 million.

    Raptors already have trouble finding Ross enough minutes. They don't want Thornton.


    And how did this guy get 8m per?

    This summer, the Kings are going to need to land a real small forward, and the only way to do that is by overpaying big time.

    Luol Deng - 4 years, $60 million.
