Totally agree. It's hard for him to get in any sort of rhythm when his minutes are so limited. I think he has a better shot elsewhere given all the young guards Boston has. Kind of feels like the McBride situation in Tennessee - hard for him to get noticed when the team has so many WRs.

RE: Marcus Thornton
Ringer article on NBA summer league

The Celtics get a mini writeup here, mostly talking about all the draft picks that are playing in summer league for them. Most teams have D-Leaguers at best coming off the bench, the Celtics have two lines of draft picks fighting for PT.

RE: Marcus Thornton
Thornton is now a free agent; the Celtics renounced his draft rights.

Saw a tweet that said Marcus had requested it...hopefully he'll now find a better fit for his talent in the summer league and get a real shot.

RE: Marcus Thornton
Glad for him that he got the release. The Celtics like to have lots of draft picks and seem to just grab guys, stash them, and maybe one or two work out. It's certainly a strategy, but can be hard for a player to get out of the D-League or foreign leagues.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPYXcLgrLkU - here's one of the games. Thornton has a couple nice shots in this highlight. If you click on the youtube channel for the team (Victoria Libertas Pesaro), you can see highlights for other games. Not sure how much Thornton is featured in the other highlights as I haven't watched them.

I see Marcus is wearing number 33 (Twice the Marcus!). Number 3 was already taken by Domantas Sabonis.
