Welcome to Detroit: Pistons Select Austin Daye With No. 15 Pick of NBA Draft

Welcome to the Detroit Pistons, Austin Daye. If you don't know who Austin Daye is, he's a 6'10" 192 lb sophomore forward from Gonzaga University. Jeff Van Gundy said on the Draft coverage that Daye makes Tayshaun Prince look like the Hulk (zinger).

What does everyone think of this pick? I think the consensus from the Open Thread is that fans would have preferred us picking one of the number of guards still available (Holiday, Teague, Maynor, Lawson, etc). But Daye is our choice and we'll have to live with it.

Here is Daye's draft combine interview and some highlights from one of his games against Arizona. Watch them, get to know him a little more, and leave your thoughts in the comments section:
