Great deal for C's on Daniels. 2 years, 4 mil for a guy who can play 30 min a night if healthy. He'll have a bigger impact than Sheed
This is the first time I'm hearing about a two year deal.
Update: Frank Dell'Apa of the Globe is reporting it's a one year deal. He also spoke with Daniels agent – Glen Schwartzmann.
“It’s his best chance to win a championship,’’ Schwartzman said. “He played in the Finals in Dallas and he wants to have a chance to play for another one. He has a chance to play important minutes in a number of different areas for a team that has a chance to win the championship.’’
The Celtics and Indiana attempted to work out a sign-and-trade deal after the Pacers declined to pick up the option on Daniels’s contract. Daniels committed to the Celtics in July after negotiating with Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, New York, and Orlando. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers recruited Daniels as a backup for Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and also as a possible fill-in at point guard.
“He was definitely offered more money, even without the sign-and-trade, with other teams,’’ Schwartzman said. “But he felt strongly about Boston and the opportunity there. There were a couple other good situations, but Danny and Coach Rivers were most sincerely interested in him.’’
