Brooklyn guard Marcus Thornton is due to earn $8.69 million next season in the final year of his deal. That may sound like a lot for a team like the Nets, and is a big reason why Sacramento shipped him East before the trade deadline, but Thornton could be worth every penny if he continues to play like he has since joining Brooklyn.
