Warriors Expected to Sign Forward Al Thornton

Posted on March 2, 2011 by


If Al Thornton clears waivers, the Warriors are expected to sign the 6-8 swingmen. The Wizards agreed to buyout his contract because of the logjam at SF they had with Rashard Lewis, Josh Howard, and Mo Evans. I love this move. He averaged 16.8 ppg for the Clippers in the 08-09 season, and he’s a great fit for the Warriors. He can run the floor and finish, and has a lot of intangibles that the average Warrior lacks. He has great length, athletic ability, and shows considerable basketball IQ. He’ll be a great asset to our already weak bench, and I think he’ll fit in great here. Welcome aboard Mr. Thornton.
