The Boston Celtics have reached an agreement to re-sign swingman Marquis Daniels for $2.5 million on a one-year deal, his agent, Mark Bartelstein, told FanHouse on Thursday.
“It’s a good opportunity for him,” Bartelstein said. “It’s a fresh start for him after the injury.”
I’m willing to give Quisy a clean slate. He’s a good player who just had everything go wrong last season. Let him start over. He’ll be the primary small forward from day one and he’ll get the chance to finish some unfinished business. I’m really excited about this, mostly because the other options seemed so bleak.
UPDATE: A bench five of Robinson, Bradley, Daniels, Davis and O’Neal? Not bad. I’m kind of digging it, to tell you the truth. Snatch another wing and a guy like Kurt Thomas and I’m sold on this offseason. Danny Ainge didn’t exactly go ninja, but he’s done enough.
