At one time, the Mavericks thought they had a keeper in Marquis Daniels.The slithery 6-6 guard who was never drafted had finished the 2003-04 season with an 11-game burst in which he averaged 20.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.09 steals. Don Nelson believed he had a player who could score 20 points any night. And when he didn't, Daniels would dish out plentiful assists while posting up smaller guards. Nellie probably still feels that way. But the man calling the Mavericks' shots these days, Avery Johnson, is not as big a fan of posting up point guards.
