Report: Daniels re-signs with Celtics

Posted By Jessica Camerato On July 22, 2010 @ 10:10 pm In General | 2 Comments

According to multiple reports, Marquis Daniels [1] has agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with the Celtics [2].

On Thursday night Daniels (@marquis_daniels [3]) tweeted, “Let’s try this again #celticnation I’m happy to be back.”

Daniels averaged 5.6 points and 1.9 rebounds last season. He was sidelined for 27 games by a thumb injury and appeared in just 51 games during the regular season. Daniels also suffered a concussion during the Eastern Conference finals.

A healthy Daniels fills the Celtics need for a perimeter defender. The C’€™s were left with a hole in their second unit after Tony Allen [4] signed with the Grizzlies [5] and Daniels was still on the market.

In spite of his limited role on the Celtics, Daniels had expressed an interest in returning to Boston last season.

‘€œThe locker room is great, it’€™s a great atmosphere, the coaching staff, everything is good,’€ he previously told WEEI.com [6]. ‘€œSo it’€™s something that I’€™d like to be part of. Hopefully it will work out. If not, then I have to deal with everything that happens.’€
