Daniels, Celtics agree to 1-year deal

WALTHAM Slowly but surely, the Boston Celtics are getting the band back together for another run this season.
Marquis Daniels will sign a one-year deal with the Celtics, and will likely be in training camp which is scheduled to begin on Friday.

The Boston Globe was the first to report Daniels' return.

His return bodes well for a C's team looking to add talented players despite having limited resources to use on free agents.

A fan favorite with the C's, Daniels has the ability to defend all three perimeter positions which gives the Celtics the kind of versatility that they'll desperately need this season.

However, the C's have yet to get a full season out of Daniels due to injuries. And his most recent injury, a bruised spinal cord, seemingly put his NBA career in doubt.

It was the second time during his time with Boston that he suffered some type of spine-related issue. The first was during the Eastern Conference finals against Orlando in 2010.

Following the bruised spinal cord injury he suffered in February, the Celtics traded him to Sacramento for a 2017 second-round pick.

Daniels hasn't played in an NBA game since that spinal injury, but he did participate in Rajon Rondo's charity basketball game last month at Harvard.

"I'm good," he told CSNNE.com at the time. "I feel pretty good."

Brown releases statement: 'I never struck my wife, and never would'

Giants kicker Josh Brown released a statement via ESPN on Thursday

"I am sorry that my past has called into question the character or integrity of The New York Giants, Mr. Mara or any of those who have supported me along the way. I have taken measures to get help so that I may be the voice of change, not a statistic. It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would. Abuse takes many forms, and is not a gray area. Through the past several years I have worked to identify and rectify my own behaviors. The road to rehabilitation is a journey and a constant modification of a way of life. My journey will continue forever as a person determined to leave a positive legacy and I embrace the opportunities to show and speak about what has helped me to be that man. In the interim, I am cooperating with the Giants and the NFL. Thank you to everyone that has supported me, I will not let you down."
