Community Projection: Al Thornton

With the season starting Thursday, we're giving you all a chance to predict how every player on the roster will do this season.  Scroll down for more community projections.  

Al Thornton does a lot of things, but none particularly well.  He can play; there's no question about that.  But as long as he's a 5th-7th man, he needs to find a skill and stick to it.  Thus far, he hasn't done that.  He'll get his chances early in the season with Josh Howard out, and he needs to take advantage.  

Anyway, let's predict his numbers.

  • Games played
  • Points per game
  • Rebounds per game
  • Minutes per game
  • Field goal percentage
  • Free-throw percentage
  • True shooting percentage
  • Rebound percentage
  • Turnover ratio
  • Usage rate
  • PER

Bonus question: If you were Thornton's coach, and you were tasked with telling him to focus on just one area of the game, what do you think would make the most sense for him?
