Celtics Trade Marquis Daniels To Kings For Cash

The flurry of Celtics moves at the NBA trade deadline continued Thursday afternoon when Boston sent Marquis Daniels to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for cash, this according to CBS' Ken Berger. Daniels has not played since Feb. 6, when he suffered a bruised spinal cord, and it's growing more and more likely that he will miss the remainder of the season.

As a player on a one-year deal with early Bird rights at stake, Daniels has the option to veto any trade, so basically he needs to decide if he wants to watch a playoff run with Boston or putz around with the Kings. For Sacramento, the move gets them above the league's salary floor, which is set at 75 percent of the salary cap.

The Daniels move was the third made by the Celtics on Thursdays. Boston traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic (and a 2012 first-round pick), a deal that was quickly followed by sending Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to the Cavaliers in exchange for a 2013 draft pick.
