Austin Daye practicing at power forward

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Daye is along for the whole ride, and it’s telling that he’s been working at power forward almost exclusively so far.

“Everything is crowded with us right now,” Daye said. “We’ve got a lot of guys at a lot of positions. It’s just about carving your niche and I think I’m trying to do that at the four a little bit now and when we get there, play some three, some two. Whatever positions Lawrence wants me to play, I’m willing to play just to get out on the floor.”

There has been some sentiment within the organization that Daye’s best shot at a significant NBA future lies at that spot, where he can use his unusual gifts – not just deep shooting range but an assortment of mid-range shots within his arsenal – to vex traditional power forwards.

Because that worked so well the first time.
