MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) Veteran N-B-A guard Marquis Daniels is reportedly being considered for the Milwaukee Bucks’ only roster opening, as the team gears up for the start of training camp October second.
The Journal Sentinel says the 31-year-old Daniels and his agent have had discussions on a contract – but there’s no word on progress toward an agreement. Daniels played the last three seasons in Boston, and has also been with Dallas and Indiana.
He overcame a spinal cord injury from February of 2011 to play a key reserve role with the Celtics during last season’s playoffs. He averaged just over three points in 38 regular season games with Boston, and he averaged two points in 15 playoff games for the Celtics. All told, Daniels has started 113 N-B-A games and played in 489, with a career scoring average of just over eight points.
Daniels was among the players who worked out informally with the Bucks in advance of training camp.
