Free agent Marquis Daniels has signed with the Celtics, who are expected to make an announcement today, according to a league source.
Daniels will earn a one-year biannual exception contract worth $1.99 million. The Celtics had attempted to increase Daniels’ salary with a sign and trade deal.
Daniels, 28, has averaged 9.4 points per game in five seasons with Dallas and Indiana. Daniels averaged 13.6 points in 54 games for the Pacers last season, missing several games late in the season with a wrist injury.
But Daniels has recovered from the injury, according to his agent, Glenn Schwartzman.
“Indiana was out of the playoff picture, so they shut him down,” Schwartzman said. “He could have played a week or 10 days after the injury but they didn’t want him to get hurt.”
