Rockets Waive Guard Marcus Thornton


Friday, the team waived guard Marcus Thornton, more than a week after an agreed-to deal with the Detroit Pistons fell apart and he returned to the team.

Rockets officials met with Thornton on Friday to discuss his prospects with the team. Houston wanted to make sure that if a move was made, Thornton still could be eligible to play for a playoff-bound team; sides must agree to a deal by Tuesday’s midnight deadline for that to happen.
