Marcus Thornton By The Numbers

The Marcus Thornton + Cash for Carl Landry trade seems to be fairly polarizing around these parts. The way I see it is this: The Kings add an promising young wing to a weak backcourt, while saving money this year, AND freeing up some of the frontcourt's clutter. While we're at it, I'd like you, the Sactown Royalty reader, to peep Marcus Thornton's career numbers when playing 30+ minutes. I think it goes to show, when the kid gets some run, there are few young shooting guards that are better (offensively anyways).

21.0 points per game / 4.3 rebounds per game / 2.4 assists per game / 1.2 steals per game / 0.2 blocks per game / 1.6 turnovers per game / 47% FG / 38% 3PT / 85% FT / .571 True Shooting %

So what do you guys (and gals) think? Bench spark? Ideal sidekick to Tyreke Evans? Aftethought?
