The "Austin Daye is a Piston" post

New, comments

The Pistons have selected Austin Daye out of Gonzaga with the 15th overall pick.

Scouting report from Draft Express:

Daye uses the third least possessions amongst college players on our list at 12.6 per game, but his 49% shooting percentage in logged games places him above average on our list. At 6’10, Daye’s 63% shooting as a finisher and 44% on both catch and shoot and pull up jumpers should give him excellent potential in the eyes of NBA decision-makers. However, his body gives them reason for pause, and will make them wonder if he can translate his talents to the much more physically demanding style of the NBA.

Update: Ryan McNeill of Hoops Addict snagged a good interview with Daye earlier this month during a pre-draft workout in Toronto.
