Looks like veteran swingman Marquis Daniels is going to provide a little depth for the Milwaukee Bucks this year.

Daniels, who has been working out in Milwaukee the past week, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. While officially the terms of the deal are not public, the words you are looking for are “veteran minimum.”

Daniels doesn’t bring a ton of offense to the Bucks — he averaged 3.2 points per game on 36.4 percent shooting last season — but he is a good perimeter defender, something the Bucks could use to go with Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. They are going to get points out of the Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis backcourt, but they are going to need some stops, too.

Daniels numbers dipped last season after he came back from 2011 spinal surgery to fix a long-standing neck issue exacerbated by a collision with Gilbert Arenas.

Not a game changer in Milwaukee, but a solid pick up.

    Marguis Daniels is a PF?

    (bad joke about the Buck’s only acquiring PF’s this offseason)
