BayRunners deal Daniels to Trenton

Forward Greer acquired for player suspended after leaving team to force deal

January 04, 2000|By Brent Jones | Brent Jones,SUN STAFF

The BayRunners traded forward Lloyd Daniels, who had been suspended by the International Basketball League, to the Trenton Shooting Stars yesterday for forward LaMarr Greer.

Daniels led the BayRunners in scoring, averaging 17.1 points in nine games. He scored a season-high 36 on Dec. 10 against Las Vegas.

But Daniels, who wanted to be closer to his family in New Jersey, left the team two weeks ago in an attempt to force a trade.

In Greer, the BayRunners are getting a player that coach Herb Brown said can play guard and small forward. He averaged 13.4 points for the Shooting Stars.

Greer is expected to report to practice today or for tomorrow night's home game against Cincinnati.

"He can run the ballclub. He can shoot the jumper," Brown said. "He can defend the three if he has to. He's a pretty good player."

Brown said he talked with Daniels yesterday and wished him well.

"Trenton wanted Lloyd the moment he got here," Brown said. "I have no hard feelings toward Lloyd."

The BayRunners had been allowed to keep an extra player while Daniels was on suspension, so Brown will have to release someone, although he said he plans to re-sign that player if guard LaBradford Smith goes on the injured list.

Smith reinjured his ankle two games ago in St. Louis and did not dress for the last game.
