INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Former Indiana Pacers guard Marquis Daniels will play for the Boston Celtics next season.
Agent Glenn Schwartzman said on Saturday that his client has committed to go to Boston as a free agent or as part of a sign-and-trade deal with Indiana.
Schwartzman said both teams would prefer that the sign-and-trade
works out, but the Celtics will use the biannual exception to sign Daniels if trade talks fizzle. Schwartzman wouldn't say which other
players would be involved in a deal.
Yahoo! Sports first reported that Daniels would join the Celtics.
Daniels averaged a career-high 13.6 points last season, but Indiana chose not to pick up its $7.3 million team option on him last month. The Pacers said they only comment on official deals.
