McDaniels appeared in two games for the Swarm in the G League single-site, averaging 20.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.0 blocks in 38.0 minutes per game. The San Diego State product returns to the Hornets where he has appeared in nine games this season, averaging 3.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 9.3 minutes per game.
