Default Al Thornton on verge of signing with Golden State.

Hmm. I wonder who will give him a shot. Pretty young and decent athletic wing scorer...

I wouldn't be surprised if the Grizzlies make a run at him if we don't land Powe.

Pretty sure he'd behind Rudy Gay. Thronton is a wing, not a big man. He'd make sense for the Grizz tho with Gay's injury. Guess you could kinda call him a really poor man's Gay

For some reason I was thinking he was an undersized 4 for the most part. Battier will be in there behind Gay once he comes back so maybe they won't go after him. I've already heard talk from Hollins about how once Rudy gets back they may try some small line ups with Battier at the 3 and Rudy at the 4.
