Daniels has a strong understanding of how the Celtics’ locker room had operated over the past three seasons, and he admits Rondo and Allen had their differences at times. But he was adamant that it has been the media that’s led to the war of words escalating between both Celtics players and Allen. “That’s who makes [this] blow out of proportion – the media,” Daniels said. “I blame the media making it bigger than what it is. I don’t think the relationship [between Rondo and Allen] is that bad. If they hated each other, they would’ve been fighting.” RealGM

Marquis Daniels, who played a reserve role with the Boston Celtics last season, was among a group of players working out at the Bucks training facility in St. Francis on Monday. The 31-year-old Daniels played in 138 regular-season games for the Celtics over the past three seasons. The 6-foot-6 guard-forward has averaged 8.2 points in a nine-year NBA career with Dallas, Indiana and Boston. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
The NBA admitted Friday that a tardy foul call on the Celtics late in Game 6 cost the Hawks an extra free throw. With 3.1 seconds left in the game and the Hawks trailing 81-79, Boston’s Marquis Daniels was called for fouling Hawks center Al Horford as teammate Marvin Williams was about to inbound the ball. By rule, if a personal foul is assessed against the defense before the ball is released on a throw-in, the offense is awarded one free throw and possession of the ball. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
