Marcus Thornton: Officially clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton cleared waivers Saturday and is officially a free agent, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

As anticipated, the veteran passed through waivers unclaimed and will now be free to sign with another club. Thornton hadn't been much of an impact player for the Wizards, posing averages of 6.6 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 40.0 percent from the floor and 35.0 percent from three. As a result, he's unlikely to be at the top of most teams' wish lists, but the 29-year-old has proven to be a valuable scorer off the bench in years past.

Marcus Thornton: Waived by Nets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton will be waived by the Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Thornton, along with Andrew Nicholson and a first-round pick were shipped to Brooklyn earlier Wednesday in exchange for Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough. However, the Nets are happy with where their shooting guard situation is at and will look elsewhere to fill the final spot on the roster. That sends Thornton back to the free agent pool, where he'll look to latch on with a contender or a provide a younger, more inexperienced roster with some veteran help from the eighth-year pro.

Nets' Marcus Thornton: Traded to Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton, Andrew Nicholson and a 2017 first-round pick will be sent from the Wizards to the Nets on Wednesday in exchange for Bojan Bogdanoic and Chris McCullough, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Thornton opened the season in a rotational role for the Wizards, but fell out of favor in January and February and hadn't seen the court in the team's last 21 games. That prompted the Wizards to add him as a sweetener to Wednesday's trade, although the first-round pick is what Brooklyn really coveted in the exchange. There's no guarantees that Thornton is thrust into a bigger role right out of the gates with Brooklyn, but Nets aren't particularly strong at shooting guard with guys like Randy Foye and Sean Kilpatrick holding down the top two spots, so Thornton should at least have the opportunity to compete for minutes.

Wizards' Marcus Thornton: Still outside of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 116-108 win over the Lakers on Thursday.

Thornton hasn't appeared in any of the Wizards' last 15 games, as he's fallen behind rookies Tomas Satoransky and Sheldon McClellan in the pecking order at shooting guard off the bench. Since Thornton will be a free agent this summer and doesn't appear to have much of a future with the Wizards, don't be surprised if the team looks to trade him away prior to the deadline.

Wizards' Marcus Thornton: Ousted from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Tuesday's 101-99 win over the Bulls.

Thornton hasn't played in any of the past three games, as it seems he's fallen behind John Wall, Bradley Beal, Kelly Oubre, Trey Burke and even undrafted rookie Sheldon McClellan in the backcourt pecking order. The veteran can often fill it up in the scoring column when given minutes, but since that isn't happening at the moment, he can largely be ignored in the fantasy realm.
