Milwaukee Bucks Reportedly Close to Signing Marquis Daniels

According to multiple media outlets, the Bucks and free agent Marquis Daniels are closing in on a deal. Per the Journal-Sentinel: “The Bucks have an open roster spot and may have a player to fill it. Veteran guard Marquis Daniels, who has worked out with Bucks players at the team’s training facility this week, is being seriously considered for the 15th spot on the roster. Daniels and his agent are in discussions with Bucks management but no contract has been signed at this point, according to a league source. The 31-year-old Daniels played the last three seasons with the Boston Celtics and also has played for the Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers. Daniels is a savvy veteran with the ability to defend wing players. And he has playoff experience with Dallas and Boston, including last season when the Celtics reached the Eastern Conference finals and played a memorable series against the eventual NBA champion Miami Heat. Daniels returned to the Celtics last season after suffering a spinal cord injury in February 2011. His strong play at the end of last season resulted in his promotion to a reserve role during the playoffs.”
