Daniels was waived by L.A. on Sunday after he and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, worked out a deal with the team. He cleared waivers earlier Wednesday. Daniels is a career 39.7 percent shooter from three-point range and will give the Nuggets another deep threat off the bench.
Denver was able to sign Daniels with the money it saved when Jordan McRae was claimed by the Pistons, as Bobby Marks of ESPN notes. Daniels will make $481K over the rest of the season and the Nuggets will have a $385K cap hit. That salary is in addition to the $2M he receives from the Lakers.
Daniels averaged 4.2 points in 41 games with the Lakers after signing a minimum-salary contract last summer. Denver will be his seventh team in a seven-year career.
