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.
