Austin Daye is No. 217 in the ESPN #NBARank

Austin Daye is the latest Piston listed in ESPN’s list of the top 500 players and incoming rookies in the NBA right now. All in all, that’s not a bad ranking for Daye, who has yet to prove he can be a mainstay in a rotation.

His summer, though, gives great hope that he has the work ethic to gain some consistency and become an important contributor for the Pistons next season. I would be shocked to see him leap several of the players who will be unveiled ahead of him in these rankings by the end of the season.

Other Pistons unveiled in the rankings are: Ben Wallace (227), Jason Maxiell (239), Brandon Knight (267), Chris Wilcox (330), Kyle Singler (446), Terrico White (472) and Vernon Macklin (498).
