Based on his play since the Pistons drafted him 15th overall in 2009, this will come as no surprise, but ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that Austin Daye is unlikely to get an extension from the Pistons before the Oct. 31 deadline for members of the class of 2009 to sign extensions:
“Unlikely” is the exact word recited by one well-placed insider when asked about Daye’s hopes for an extension. It appears that the Pistons aren’t about to trifle with any of next summer’s projected cap space after wishing for years that they could take back the deals handed out to Charlie Villanueva and the recently traded Ben Gordon.
So far, Blake Griffin and Serge Ibaka are the only members of that draft class to receive extensions.
