The Celtics added two Marcus Thorntons within one year. The Celtics went with the combo guard from William and Mary with their 45th pick.
Thornton is an undersized guard but he is quick and relies on his speed and agility to get by. Thornton is an excellent shooter as well. There is a small chance that Thornton is a Celtic next year; he may need to be a stash player.
Thornton is his school's career leading scorer and was seen as a leader and positive player in the locker room. Jay Bilas said "he's got quickness and he is very good with the ball."
