Suns ship Isaiah Thomas to Celtics for Thornton, first-rounder
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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

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.
