Report: Celtics Close To Deal With Marquis Daniels

BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics are close to bringing Marquis Daniels back to their bench, according to the Boston Globe.

Daniels played two seasons in Boston, both shortened by injury. The guard played in 51 games during the 2009-10 NBA season, averaging 5.6 points per game on 50-percent shooting. A spinal injury cut his 2010-11 season to just 49 games.

Daniels, 30, bruised his spinal cord in February against the Orlando Magic, and underwent surgery in the off-season.

Boston dealt Daniels to the Sacramento Kings at the trade deadline last season for a pick and cash in order to clear a roster spot.

Daniels played well in spurts for Boston, but injuries make him unreliable for a team that needs help off the bench. He is better known for his defense, but can score around the basket.
