“I love to play defense and I can guard so many different positions. If my offense isn’t going well I can stay on the floor by being disruptive in defense. I have the tools — the height, length and will to defend,” Daniels said.
“I can make plays for my teammates and best of all I’m a winner. I’m ready to step on the floor right away and defend, make steals and play with high energy.”

“Playing in the G League helped me learn to play the NBA style,” Daniels added. “I kept getting better and better. It was really helpful in me being where I am today.”
Daniels joins an upstart Pelicans team that managed to make the playoffs after winning a spot in the play-in tournament. C.J. McCollum and Brandon Ingram will lead the way while Jose Alvarado’s defense made him an up-and-coming star. Zion Williamson may also be healthy for the 2022-23 stagione.
