"It's a good opportunity for him,'' Bartelstein said. "It's a fresh
start for him after the injury.''
Daniels, who had thumb surgery during the season, averaged 5.6 points
last season while playing in just 51 games.
Raise your hand if you thought (at the beginning of free agency) the Celtics would resign Marquis Daniels? As the days passed and viable alternatives continued to sign with other teams, it became clear that the Celtics had no other choice but to bring back Quisy.
Remember how excited you were when the Celtics signed Daniels last season? Most of us thought he was going to be a key contributor off the bench. He was… until the thumb injury in mid-season. And once he returned, he fell into Doc's doghouse, for whatever reason. I asked Daniels (via Twitter) to explain and he claimed not to know the reason why his playing time disappeared.
Let's hope Daniels can turn things around.
