Random Drive-Bys (Marquis Daniels Edition)

Lakers Fans React to Signing

Yup, he can create for himself so he's not another scrub who just waits for the star players are going to do. Junayd @ Jul 17 2009, 06:22 PM

I live in Indy so I've watched him a lot... He's a good pick up for them. He's a solid player. He just suffers to injury a lot. Mikey on TLN, Jul 17 2009, 07:15 PM

Damn, thats a good pickup. ClutchYesterday, 05:52 PM

Too bad he sucks. marga86.

What are you talking about he can play SG,SF and can play the point is a good defender and for $2 Million that is a bargain. Boston is getting deep. lakers11521 PostPosted: Fri Jul 17, 2009 4:05 pm

Wow. That's a really good signing. Daniels can actually provide similar things that Posey did for them in the 2008 Championship. Laker_Dynasty PostPosted: Fri Jul 17, 2009 4:25 pm

Boston just became the Favorites for the NBA Championship, IMO. JUST-MING PostPosted: Fri Jul 17, 2009 5:13 pm

He's a hell of a lot better than Tony Allen, that's for sure. TheJellosJigglin' Sat Jul 18, 2009 12:08 am

Wow,Daniels for the LLE is probably the best find out there. Didn't think he'd be available for this money(1.9m), but guys are getting desperate. Phenomenal job by Danny.Nice young player for now and the future. Rambistone. Fri Jul 17, 2009 8:23 pm

Man the economy must be bad if a guy like Daniels can only get $1.9m. divatch. Fri Jul 17, 2009 10:22 pm

Laker Fans Discuss Acquiring Marquis Before Celtics Get Him

I'd take Daniels over everyone mentioned in this thread (rush, alston, barnes), not kidd of barbosa but the others yes. Daniels may be the most comparable sub to Ariza if we lose him, god forbid. When Dunleavy and Granger went down this season Daniels was a beast, he was also very good on Dallas before Josh Howard took over (if I have my facts right there). The short of it is, this guy is very underrated, is a 20 PPG guy with starter minutes, can play defense and is a vet but not too old. I used to not like him that much because of the tats and that he never smiled or anything but he's a good player, more mature now also. I don't konow the asking price but if it's $4 million or less I say pull the trigger. He's SOOO much better than Sasha and to be honest, better than Brown also, who I love. I would trade Luke for him also, who many joke that we'd love to dump but Luke's got a lot of intangibles that make him valuable. Even gauging all of that I'd rather have Daniels.

I agree. He's so versatile. If Ariza stays he can log minutes in the backcourt. If Ariza goes he can log heavy minutes at SF. Again, I think we could get him for less than 3 million per ... ironically Cleveland will be our biggest competition. ALL HAIL Wed Jul 01, 2009 4:23 am

Phil likes big guards. my take is he will go to Lakers and play the ron harper/brian shaw role. He is pg like and would work well with brooks, but i think he will have better options. Maybe a sign and trade though. I think that would be a nice match for Marquis and the Laker, but I don't think the Lakers will be able to afford him after spending to keep Lamar Odom. My guess is that Indiana WANTS to keep him and will re-sign him to a multi-year deal at about $3-4M per year. Originally Posted by leebigez

Perfect! Anything that makes Laker fans mad that the Celtics got a better deal than them is great! I have this uncontrollable hatred for all things Laker.

Now all we need is for odom to play next year on the other coast.
