Austin Daye F SA 1 Day
Austin Daye knocked down a pair of 3-pointers at the end of Thursday's win vs. the Heat, marking his first points scored with the Spurs.
He came in for a few minutes during garbage time and won't have a significant spot in the rotation unless injuries hit hard. "I'm just happy to be here, honestly," Daye said. "I think it's a place I can grow and develop as a player." The fifth-year forward has a career 40.9 percent shooting average and he's unlikely to ever surface as a reliable fantasy option.

Austin Daye hit three 3-pointers on his way to 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go with three boards in 12 minutes on Wednesday.
He's been a preseason start in previous years, but has yet to string together anything noteworthy is a long time. Daye isn't worth drafting in any league.

Reserve forward Austin Daye has agreed to a two-year contract with the Raptors, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Daye has skills and typically shows them off in the preseason and training camp. However, he's had trouble putting it all together when it counts, and playing behind guys like Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan isn't going to help his cause this season.

The Grizzlies did not send a qualifying offer to Austin Daye, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Daye was a throw-in player for the Tayshaun Prince deal. He played 12.3 minutes per game with the Grizzlies last regular season, scoring just 4.5 points per game. Daye is a summer-league superstar, but has yet to get his game in gear when it counts.

Austin Daye was deactivated for the Grizzlies on Saturday, replaced in the active lineup by Donte Greene.
Daye has played a negligible role during the playoffs and his absence would only have been noticed by the most observant Grizzlies' fans. Greene didn't set foot on the court, for what it's worth, and neither guy is likely to play when Memphis tries to stave off elimination on Monday.

Austin Daye is happy with the Grizzlies and said that Lionel Hollins gives him "great insight" and "confidence."
Daye was a total afterthought with the Pistons, so it's not a surprise to see him embrace new scenery. Set for free agency at the end of the season, Daye is not certain to return to Memphis.

Austin Daye is not expected to play on Thursday, but should be available for the Grizzlies on Friday.
Daye, like Tayshaun Prince and Ed Davis, are expected to make their Grizzlies debut on Friday. Daye has real sleeper appeal with no clear starter at small forward in Memphis, and he's shown an ability to contribute in multiple categories when given the opportunity.

G/F Austin Daye will reportedly be traded to the Grizzlies, along with Tayshaun Prince, in exchange for Jose Calderon.
Prince looks like the starter for the new starting small forward for the Grizzlies after the Rudy Gay trade, but it's possible Daye could see new life now that he's out of Detroit, where he never seemed to really get a fair shake. He's put up some incredible numbers in Summer League games and the preseason, but has never really gotten a chance to show his skills on a full-time basis. There's a decent chance the same will be true in Memphis, but he's at least worth keeping an eye on for his new team.
