In what might be the shocker of the century, Marquis Daniels said yesterday he isn’t very optimistic in a return to the Boston Celtics. What, you mean he doesn’t want to come back to another year of being underpaid, riding the bench, and lowering his value to any other team? Weird.
Now a free agent, it’s unlikely that Daniels will return next season.
“I’m just looking to go somewhere where I can help out,” Daniels told CSNNE.com on Wedensday. “If it’s starting, coming off the bench, I just want to go somewhere and help.”
When asked about the likelihood of him coming back to Boston, Daniels said, “I’m open to listening and to hear from anybody. I just want to go somewhere and help.”
Daniels has no ill will towards the C’s for how things went during his lone season, but he added that it was a “tough situation” to deal with.
I still don’t know what in the world went wrong with the Marquis Daniels era. He was a huge help at the beginning of the season, he was a very smart player, and he wasn’t Tony Allen — things were going great. Then Marquis got hurt, TA become Bizarro TA and Marquis morphed into a black, dreadlocked version of Scal. And now he’s headed somewhere else.
