The Celtics are getting a lot of interest in guard Marcus Thornton, but teams are concerned about his $8.6 million salary, a source said.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 14, 2015
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?
