12:29pm: The Bucks have officially announced their signing of Daniels (Twitter link).
TUESDAY, 11:02am: Daniels' deal, which is guaranteed, is for one year at the minimum salary, agent Mark Bartelstein tells SI.com's Sam Amick (Twitter link).
THURSDAY, 5:26pm: Unrestricted free agent Marquis Daniels has agreed to sign a guaranteed contract with the Bucks, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe (via Twitter). Terms of the deal aren't known, but it's unlikely to be more than a one-year contract.
Daniels, who has spent the last three seasons in Boston, worked out for the Bucks earlier this week along with a handful of other free agents in search of jobs. The nine-year veteran is coming off a down year, in which he set career-lows in PPG (3.2), FG% (.364), and PER (8.1), among other categories. Still, the Bucks had just four guards under contract, so Daniels will provide bench depth behind Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, along with Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih.
While Daniels is only the 15th player on the books for Milwaukee, it appears all 15 Bucks are now on guaranteed contracts, meaning it's unlikely the team brings aboard additional guaranteed deals before the regular-season begins. The Bucks can bring up to 20 players to training camp, so non-guaranteed contracts are still a possibility.
A few Monday afternoon odds and ends from around the NBA:
A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com yesterday advanced the notion of Jamal Crawford joining the Celtics. Fellow CSNNE.com scribe Rich Levine endorses the idea, but believes Crawford is seeking a multi-year deal worth more per year than the $5MM he made this past season with the Blazers, and wonders whether the Celtics are willing to spend that much on him. Crawford is expected to decline his $5.225MM Blazers option for next year. There's plenty more on potential Celtics comings and goings this morning, with just a few weeks to go until free agents officially hit the market.
