Rumor: Celtics getting calls on Marcus Thornton

Yahoo! Sports Marc J. Spears is reporting that Marcus Thornton is the latest Celtic to receive trade interest as the February 9th deadline nears.

Along with Brandon Bass' remaining $6.9M, Thornton's expiring contract should be the next on Danny Ainge's Trade To-Do list, but unlike Brandan Wright's $5M, Bass and Thornton a little more difficult to move because of their size.  Both vets are still very productive and could help off a contender's bench.  The Wizards seem like a team that could go all-in by trading Otto Potter or would the Thunder be willing to part with Kendrick Perkins and a pick to pull them out of the #9 spot in the West?  What say you and your trade machine, CelticsBloggers?
