In a busy day for the Celtics, which saw them send Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to Cleveland and Nate Robinson and Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder, they have also sent Marquis Daniels to Sacramento for a future 2nd round draft pick. All in all, three extra roster spots are available for cheaper and/or healthier options.
On February 6 against the Magic, Daniels collided with Gilbert Arenas and bruised his spinal cord. It was yet another Boston injury, and their most frightening one yet. Daniels will recover eventually, though perhaps not for awhile. That made him another body taking up roster room.
Now, the Celtics clear up the space for someone else. Boston has a couple of other options at guard, so now they have some flexibility in deciding who to sign or call up from the D-League. This a a great chance for Boston to start a transition to a younger team so a framework will be in place once the veterans retire.
