Marcus Thornton Thriving as a Member of the Kings

Sacramento Kings guard Marcus Thornton has been on fire since the Hornets traded him. Thornton is averaging 21 points, 2 three-pointers, and 1.8 steals for the Kings while shooting a blistering 51.7% from the field.

The Breakdown
Thornton entered the season as one of fantasy's biggest sleeper picks, but he didn't live up to the billing until the recent trade. Thornton is emerging as a great pick up in standard formats. He should continue having big scoring nights for the foreseeable future. The only threat to his value will be the return of Tyreke Evans. Once Evans is healthy, Thornton owners will want to closely monitor his minutes.
