The long wait for Marquis Daniels is nearing its end. According to
sources, the Celtics expect to sign the 6-6 swingman tomorrow to a
contract for the biannual exception.
The delay in getting Daniels officially into Green was caused by
the team trying to work out a sign and trade that would benefit both
the Celts and Indiana, the club Daniels is leaving.
The Celtics were hoping to make such a move to clear some roster
space while getting Daniels more than the nearly $2 million he will get
for 2009-10. Had they been able to come up with something palatable for
all sides — a three-team trade was being sought — the Pacers would have
been able to get something for their departing free agent.
All I can say is thank God this is over. I'm sick of being asked about it.
