Austin Daye F ATL 4 weeks ago

Daye was waived by the Hawks on Thursday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

This is likely a move for the Hawks to clear up cap space for the trade with the Spurs involving Tiago Splitter, as Daye's deal was non-guaranteed. Daye is versatile and has good length for someone playing on the wing, but the 27-year-old is limited in what he can do offensively. He does have a solid outside stroke, however, as he has shot 35 percent from behind the arc for his career. He will have to clear waivers before he can sign with the team of his choice.

Daye was waived by the Spurs in December, and acquired by the Hawks in March. He averaged 3.3 points, 0.6 three-pointers, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 0.5 steals in 10 minutes per game through 8 games with the Hawks in 2014-15.

The 27-year-old, who finished his sixth season in the NBA, is under team control through 2015-16. After being waived by the Spurs in December, Daye played 10 games in the NBA D-League where he averaged 16.0 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.1 blocks, and 0.8 steals in 28 minutes per game through 10 games. Acquired by the Hawks in March, Daye completed two consecutive 10-Day contracts before being signed for the remainder of the season in April. Daye was used minimally in Atlanta, scoring only 26 total points with the Hawks in 2014-15. Should the Hawks re-sign him, Daye will most likely be used as a minor contributor off the bench in case of injury or blowout.

Daye has yet to make an appearance through the first five games of Atlanta's series against Brooklyn.

Daye is one of the last options off the bench for Atlanta and isn't expected to be given any meaningful minutes outside of garbage time. With that, there are far better options for postseason formats than the journeyman from Gonzaga.

Daye will sign with the Hawks for the remainder of the season, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Daye's second 10-day deal is set to expire Saturday, at which point the team will formally announce the move. The journeyman Gonzaga product has bounced around since being drafted 15th overall by Detroit in 2009, and he's appeared in five games for Atlanta since coming on board midway through March.

Daye will sign a second 10-day contract with the Hawks on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports.

Daye will likely get another 10-day contract, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Daye has played in two out of a possible five games since joining the Hawks, logging just three and six minutes in those appearances. He's only gotten work in garbage time thus far, but the Hawks figure to give minutes to some non-rotation guys over the final few weeks of the season.

Daye saw his first minutes in a Hawk uniform Wednesday and finished with three points, two rebounds, and an assist in six minutes.

Daye finally got on the floor after two DNP's with the Hawks as they were getting routed by the Warriors on Wednesday. He will likely only get into games in these types of situations or if a glut of injuries sweeps through the Atlanta front court.

Daye will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Daye last appeared with the Spurs averaging 4.0 points per game in 26 contests before being waived in January. He averaged just over 10 minutes a game in that span, and likely won't see much more playing time than that in Atlanta.

Daye was claimed off waivers by the Erie BayHawks, the D-League affiliate of the Orlando Magic.Daye spent the season with the San Antonio Spurs before they waived him January 17th. With 15 players already on the roster, the Magic would need to create space if they wanted to call him up. Even if a spot opens up via trade or waivers, their D-League All-Star Seth Curry would likely garner the first nod.

Daye will be waived by the Spurs, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Daye has been inserted into 26 games for the Spurs this season but is only averaging 10.3 minutes per contest. He's a prime candidate to land on another NBA team before the season is over, although he may have to earn his way by starting with a 10-day contract first. Regardless, it would be surprising if he worked his way into fantasy prominence this year.
