Fanhouse is reporting the Celtics are in talks to acquire Marquis Daniels in a sign-and-trade.
The sign-and-trade would allow the Celtics to pay him more than the
$1.9 million exception that they would have to use to sign him outright
as an unrestricted free agent. Daniels had been asking teams for
something closer to the mid-level exception.
If that's the deal… then sign me up. Thanks for everything Scal, enjoy Indiana. Daniels will fill a lot of needs here.
Update: Marc Spears' latest tweet makes it seem like some form of this is a done deal.
