I’ve had a feeling this day would come, but something deep inside refused to fully acknowledge it. But it turns out that all of the reported interest and all of their past history couldn’t bring the Mavs and Marquis Daniels back together. Yahoo!’s Marc Spears is reporting that ‘Quis will be signing with the Celtics, of all teams, for the full biannual exception (or possibly via sign-and-trade). Daniels was certainly THE MISSING PIECE that stood between the Mavs and a championship, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he garners all kinds of accolades in single-handedly leading Boston to a title.
I didn’t plan on starting my weekend with misery, but free agency will break your heart.
