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."

Femi's goal gives Revolution 2-1 win over Sounders

It's the Femi show in New England these days. 

The New England Revolution played out 2-1 winners against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium thanks to a late goal by rookie substitute Femi Hollinger-Janzen. The goal was his second in the Revs' past three games.

With the match knotted at one in the 80th minute, Femi, who entered the game four minutes earlier, received a toe poke pass from Lee Nguyen about 20 yards from goal. The rookie nearly fell over when taking his first touch, but regained his balance before blasting a low strike through traffic inside Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei's left post.

Seattle, missing Clint Dempsey and Nelson Valdez to international duty, jumped out to an early lead in the seventh minute thanks to homegrown product Aaron Kovar. Kovar, starting for the third time in the past four games, netted his first professional goal when he corralled a poor punch from Revs keeper Bobby Shuttleworth at the top of the box, crossed up a defender as he brought the ball down to his right foot, and slotted home inside the left post.

The Revolution equalized in the 24th minute thanks to a Lee Nguyen penalty.
