Report: Daniels commits to Celtics

The Boston Herald [1] has reported small forward Marquis Daniels [2] has committed to the Boston Celtics [3]. According to the Herald, Daniels will either sign a $1.9 million biannual exception or be dealt to the Celtics in a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers [4].

Daniels averaged a career-high 13.6 points and 4.6 rebounds in 54 games last season.

After Grant Hill [5] re-signed with the Phoenix Suns [6], several sources indicated the Celtics were still pursuing a back up for Paul Pierce [7]. The Celtics captain averaged nearly 38 minutes per game last season.
