College/International Summary

Thornwell was a South Carolina product who decided to stay home for college. He spent a season with the Oak Hill Academy before matriculating to University of South Carolina where he was a four-year starter. The 6-5 guard averaged 13.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a freshman in coach Frank Martin's second season with the Gamecocks. The team was just 5-13 in conference play, but Thornwell scored 20 points or more five times. The guard struggled from the field as a sophomore and converted just 34.0 percent of his field goals. His scoring dipped to 11.4 points, but he still scored 20 points twice, including a loss against Kentucky. He bounced back to his freshman level as a junior and put up 13.4 points and 3.8 assists, including three double-doubles. Everything came together for the Gamecocks and Thornwell in his senior season. He was named SEC Player of the Year and averaged 22.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 steals. He put together a career game with 44 points and 21 rebounds in quadruple-overtime loss to Georgia. South Carolina advanced to the Final Four as a seven-seed by beating teams like Duke and Florida. Thornwell averaged 23.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in the run in the Big Dance.

Dishes out seven dimes
GNew Orleans Pelicans
July 25, 2020
Thornwell posted 12 points (3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, and three rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 119-104 scrimmage win over the Nuggets.
ANALYSIS
Thornwell signed a deal with the Pelicans earlier this month and might have a role off the bench once the regular season resumes, but he faces a tough road to earn meaningful minutes in a crowded backcourt that already includes Jrue Holiday, Lonzo Ball, J.J. Redick, and rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker, among others.

Sindarius Thornwell made his season debut with the Clippers on Nov. 10 against Milwaukee. Once he joined the roster, Thornwell saw consistent playing time with the club the remainder of the way. He played at least 10 minutes per night in three of his first four games of the season. In mid-December, he logged back-to-back 13-minute outings against Toronto and San Antonio. Thornwell displayed an ability to contribute in several areas. He posted a well-rounded two-point, four-rebound, two-assist line against the Spurs in mid-November. Later in the season, Thornwell registered five points, three rebounds and two assists in a loss to Pacers on Feb. 7. In the Indiana game, Thornwell finished with a season-high 29 minutes. He also posted a career-high five steals in that contest. The University of South Carolina product also made a mark in the postseason, appearing in four of Los Angeles' first-round playoff games against the Warriors. Thornwell drained a three-pointer and added a pair of rebounds in Game 6 on April 26.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Thornwell -- who was selected by the Bucks with the 48th overall pick in the 2017 Draft and traded to the Clippers -- signed a three-year, $3.8 million contract with the Clippers over the summer. Somewhat surprisingly, the Clippers have decided to sign Thornwell -- a relatively deep second-round pick -- to a three-year deal with the first two years guaranteed. The Los Angeles brass seemingly felt Thornwell proved himself in Las Vegas Summer League, as he posted 14.3 points (on 38.5 percent shooting), 3.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.3 assists across 26.8 minutes per game in four appearances. He also played well during his last season at South Carolina, posting 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists. That said, he's seemingly one of the lowest players in the backcourt pecking order, unlikely to make any contributions significant to Fantasy.
