Marquis Daniels?

RedsArmyAdmin June 27, 2009 Uncategorized 17 Comments

Marquis_daniels Just throwing names out there as they become available.  The latest one, according to the Indy Star (via FanHouse), is Marquis Daniels.  He has a $7.5 million team option… which the team will not pick up. 

So the 6’6″, 200 lb Daniels is now available.  I’m not saying we should or shouldn’t sign him.  I’m just throwing his name out there. 

Last year, he scored 13.6 ppg and 4.6 rpg while averaging 31.5 minutes per game, the most minutes of his career.  If you want to see how those minutes broke down “82 Games” style… here’s his 82games.com page.

He made $6.8 million last year.  He won’t make that next year… but he won’t exactly make the minimum either. 

So… what do you think?

    What’s up with the new article today about Doc and Ainge not being on the same page? All the recent personell drama is a bit concerning. John? Chuck?

    I believe you

    Are you guys nuts? Outside of Matt Barnes I would much rather have Marquis Daniels he is better than Dahntay Jones that is for sure. Tough aggressive defender who can score the ball. Marquis Daniels would be an excellent acquisition for the Celtics. I have 1 question though..Are we gona have 1 veteran and Billy Walker OR Giddens back up Pierce..Or will be bring in a duo such as Barnes/Jones or Barnes/Daniels? I am curious. Also should we overspend for the Birdman or grab a Chris Wilcox or a Brandon Bass? I feel like our best shot to get the Birdman passed us by last offseason.

    No not really..
    So I was just watching NBAtv and the crew is going over each teams draft moves, and when they were on the orlando magic, and talking about the vince carter deal David Aldrigde said all the magic have to worry about is the Cavs and Lakers. RICK Kamle then sayd, what about the celtics? in which aldrige laughs and says they already got by them…..
    hmmm… correct me if im wrong david, but they also got by the cavs, no? and we were also without Kevin Garnett, right? and took them to 7?
    riiight… okay
    not to mention, when will these nimwits start making predictions the day after one season ends….its a completly different year next season, teams will rise, teams wils falls, moves will work, moves will fail

    Fuck DA -Don’t worry about David Aldridge he is a Celtics hater. He demonstrated his hate for Celtics during our title run. After we won the title, I can still remember his interview with Doc outside the Locker room clearly. Aldridge was one of many analysts who picked the Lakers to win it all and here is David embarrassed and full of hate and very unprofessional during the interview. David looked and sounded like he was at a funeral. I never liked the guy since that night. Two words Hater and unprofessional.
    I do like Rick Kamle.. He shows his love for the Wolves, He calls them “MY WOLVES” every chance he gets. Imagine if the Wolves become title contenders again?.. NBATV might have remove him from the show. LOL

    I read that. I think that’s mostly speculations

  • nick

    QRoss?!?!?!?! Bro C’mon the guy is shorter than listed and as skinny as can be. He’s ok on D but he’s too short to help us he’s not even as tall as Tony Allen. I really have been doing some thinking, like HARDCORE thinking and have come to this conclusion.. Most experts right now have us ranked clearly behind the Cavs,Magic,and L.A, many have us behind the Spurs also. That means absolutely cock, but in my opinion we’ve gota respond to all these moves the teams are making, even the Wiz think they can fuck with us now. 1-12 Ainge has gota get this roster stacked! and then leave spots 12-15 for Giddens,Walker, and Hudson. Lets sign Barnes,MarquisDaniels,Marbury,RobSwift,&BrandonBass, none of these guys will even reuire a full mid-level exception, so its doable. We need to get ready for war because all of these other teams are right now..C’mon Lets fucking do this Ainge.

  • tommy hoosier

    i am shocked that there is someone in the world that thinks queezy is any good. By the way the fact that queezy is ur nickname should tell you something.
    I think the two signing the celts should make are Grant Hill and Antonio Mcdyess they will be hungry for a title and i will admit they are kind of old but we might as well just go for the ring now and worry about the future later

  • FSantos33

    Nick I feel you bro – When you used “Bro” I knew you are probably eight beers deep – Am I right? Anyway, I am with you “C’mon lets fucking do this AInge.” I like your passion!

  • FSantos33

    Hope so

  • Nick

    Thanks 4 the love FSantos..I think everyone’s ideas are pretty smart and we are all in the same ballpark, but my whole deal is this.. When we bring up the Antonio Mcdyess and Grant Hill’s and Anthony Parker’s of the world..These guys are a little too old, a little too nice, and a little too fragile for me to pin my hopes on them leading our bench. My point of view is this, Even with the additions to the Eastern Conference of Vinsanity,Shaq, FOye&Miller, JamalCrawford and the garunteed signings that Detroit will have with all of their cap room, we still have a great chance to be the Eastern Conference Champs, BUT BUT BUT, I feel we need to get a bunch of Mothafuckin JunkYardDogs on our bench. Just think of the most tatted up, tenacious, dudes out there, Im talking Barnes,MarquisDaniels,Birdman,RobSwift,DahntayJones,Jamaal Tinsley,Brandon Bass, I want motherfuckers who had rough childhoods. Orlando is still a bunch of pussies, and Shaq and MoWilliams aren’t sidekicks they are liabilities.. I can’t wait for the chips to start falling in July. LETS DO THIS AINGE..we need guys who will feed off of KG’s craziness and get even crazier. Orlando and Cleveland aren’t tough teams, we are and we can get even tougher. Lets cockslap em all. By the way, Rasheed Wallace is a 3point shooting homo and he can go play in Orlando or with the spurs because I don’t want that fuckin douche with his white patch of hair and 117 Technical Fouls. He showed his true colors last year when KG&Perk the beast took his lunch money in the CF’s. Nomore Rasheed talk.

    daniels and ross are listed at the same height, i like ross better because he they both pretty much have the same defensive capabilities, but ross is a better shooter, and is a smarter player
    id look at signing to guards, and resigning marbury, and keeping either pruitt or hudson
    here our some guys i would look to pair with the guys that have been mentioned coming to the C’s
    Matt Barnes with von wafer, anthony parker, marquis daniels
    Dahntey Jones with rodney carney, anthony parker, grant hill
    Grant Hill with matt barnes, von wafer, quinton ross
    Marquis Daniels with Linus Kleiza, anthony parker, rondney carney
    and then i would sign zaza for his size, toughness, and knowledge of doc’s system
    and i would look to sign another forward who is athletic and can block shots
    so our roster would look something like this
    rondo/steph/hudson (d league)
    allen/eddie/wafer/walker
    pierce/barnes/giddens
    kg/big baby/powe/scal
    perk/zaza/swift (robert or stromile)

  • nick

    I like some of your thoughts, I would like to have Kleiza or Wafer..Daniels is much better than QRoss though that is where I disagree. Carney,Barnes,Jones would all be great acquisitions. Grant Hill and Anthony Parker though are a little too nice and not good enough Defenders for my liking. ZAZA would be ok but I can bet you he will be there 4th or 5th option. The C’s will be looking for height and length and athleticism. ZAZA while he is tough and rugged as hell isn’t much taller than Powe and he’s not a leaper. I think Ainge is no doubt gona go after Robert Swift because he has always been obsessed with him. I wouldn’t mind seeing Swift or Ike Diogu just for their pure scoring potential, both dudes can get buckets quick even though their career numbers are bogus. I THINK we have to get a combo of two of these 3 men..Barnes,Daniels, and Kleiza. Kleiza is an underated scorer and he can absolutely light it up. Kleiza and Barnes might be a great idea.

    I don’t believe that the guy in the picture with the Pacers uniform is Marquis Daniels. That looks like Otis Day, the bandleader at the toga party in “Animal House.” What does Marquis Daniels look like?

  • tommy hoosier

    he looks like a retarded muppet
