Scal to Indy for Marquis Daniels?

RedsArmyAdmin July 17, 2009 Uncategorized 15 Comments

Fanhouse is reporting the Celtics are in talks to acquire Marquis Daniels in a sign-and-trade

One of the names being discussed as part of the sign-and-trade is Celtics power forward Brian Scalabrine, who is going into the final year of his contract making $3.5 million.


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.

    Thanks, RA, for keeping Celtics nation informed. I just checked my sources and nobody else is talkin’ it about it. Now, having said all that, isn’t MD just a smidgen taller than TA?

    Also this non drinking stuff is pissing me of although I have dropped 22 LBS. I can see why Vin had a hard time. I may be tougher than I thought Like take tonight it’s warm out…….. That’s great reason to drink!!!!!!tomm I have a cook out to go even better reason to drink!!!!!!! I know Miller Light stock has to be down. Anyways can’t remember where I was going with this But maybe my comments about Vin were a bit Harsh but then again maybe not, he was getting paid Millions and I’m not. Who knows I love beer and I’m still going to stay dry to prove that Vin threw it away. Everyone drink heavy tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think the media pissed Bird off last week so he is going all out. Don’t be surprised 12 white men on the Pacers (They already have 7 I believe). Whoa

    He’s 6’6″… so he might be a little on the smallish side for a 3… but only a little. He can play the 3… the 2… and in a pinch bring the ball up.

    this is huge, our bench went from a liability to the best in the league pending we keep baby.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    This would be great. Then ship TA off for some point guard, and wait for the all-star break for 1 or 2 additions.
    We would have to sign Swift too…isn’t there a mandatory white guy rule? I thought thats why we kept Scal anyway.

    and MD has a brain, which is one of the big things that TA lacks.

    yea we ARE the celtics, we probably should sign swift, fazekas, and that mullins kid to round out our roster and get our quota back up
