    Is Thornton the player Cod was hinting at?

    Is this the 28 year old Thornton or the young one Boston didn't sign?

    He is just above average at three and can create for himself but not for others. OK move.

    Career 37% 3PT shooting. Averaged 22 in his 3rd year. I like the pick up. He's still in his 20s too.
