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."
