Celtics Agree to Deal With Daniels

Over the weekend, the Boston Celtics agreed to a deal with free agent Marquis Daniels. The 28-year-old played for the Pacers for the past three years, and last year averaged career highs in points (13.6) and rebounds (4.6). Last month the Pacers declined a $7.35 million option on Daniels. After averaging upwards of 30 mpg last season, Daniels will be counted on to provide minutes off the bench when Ray Allen and Paul Pierce rest. After signing Rasheed Wallace recently, the Celtics may still be in the market for a point guard.

    Another good pick-up for Gang Green! KG, Paul Pierce, Mr. Shuttlesworth, Big Baby and Eddie House with Rasheed Wallace and now Marquis Daniels. And Daniels is great because he can play 3 spots, both guards and the 3. I love it! We just need to make sure Rondo keeps his head on straight and plays like he’s playing for a contract (hint) and I see #18 coming to TD North!

    If healthy, Boston will win the east. (I felt this way before the signing) Daniels is ok.

    So i guess Tony Allen stunk up the place last year lol. Good moves dont get me wrong but, They needed an Ariza or SOMEONE like him (a solid “rp” with d’ skills) to replace the void left by Posey i thought his help d’ on Kobe & General scrappy play in the finals was a key to them Beating up on LA.

    Great. Now all they need is to bring back big baby and get themselves a back up point guard, because Gabe Pruitt sucks more than a black hole filled with vacuum cleaners.

    what a weak ass analogy, “sucks more than a black hole filled with vacuum cleaners”

    sucks more than Paris Hilton on spring break.

    he’s not going to get as much playing time as he did in indiana, unless someone gets injured…. and why sign him when they have bill walker?

  • ciroqobama

    Sucks more than Kim Kardashian at the BET awards

  • Kas

    but does not suck more than you guys

    this is an awesome signing. we really do need a backup PG though. and gabe pruitt is NOT exactly derrick rose. unless Danny Ainge plans on playing Lester Hudson, our rookie, he should go out and get like a nate robinson type. i’d say andre miller but i heard he’s not that good.

    I think this is a good pick up as the Cs need a decent scoring guard off the bench (Wallace off the bench will be sick as well). Let’s be honest, Tony Allen brings the suck as sixth man. Daniels should be solid.

    I dunno, if the Cavs can pick up a perimiter defender to let Lebron roam around more they might have an advantage over the Celtics and if Dwight Howard improves his offence then I dont think the Celtics can stop him…….

    Just Not Sure Daniels = Trouble maker

    I would have to agree totally with Blaze as long as we stay healthy we got a lock on 2010 championship! GO CELTICS!!!

    Daniels is a good pickup because it will provide rest to Ray and he needs that to be rested in the playoffs CELTICS 2010 NBA CHAMPIONS
