Update: Thornton was streaky coming off the bench for Houston and Washington during the 2015-16 season, but he managed to score in double-digits 28 times.
Analysis: Thornton improved marginally this season after struggling in 2014-15 with the Celtics and Suns over a total of 48 outings where he averaged a tick below eight points per game. He averaged just over 10 points coming off the bench for the Rockets, but was waived by the team after a trade involving Thornton and teammate Donatas Motiejunas was nullified. After signing with the Wizards in March, Thornton saw action in 14 games and reached double-digits in five of those games. The 28-year-old should spark interest in the offseason for his streaky scoring abilities as he enters free agency once again.
