Celtics bring Marquis Daniels back after swingman's injury-plagued first season with team

The Boston Celtics have re-signed swingman Marquis Daniels.

The team announced Monday that it had signed the 6-foot-6 Daniels after his disappointing first season with the club. The seven-year veteran missed 28 games with a torn ligament in his left thumb that required surgery and averaged a career-low 5.6 points in 51 games.

In the Celtics' last 25 games, Daniels sat out two, scored two points seven times and was held scoreless six times.

He played in only 11 of the team's 24 playoff games and just two of the seven games for a total of 4 minutes, 21 seconds in the NBA finals won by the Los Angeles Lakers. In 2008-09 he averaged career-highs of 13.6 points and 4.6 rebounds in 54 games with the Indiana Pacers.
