And so the timeless question has been answered. Yes, Austin Daye does have trade value, apparently.
San Antonio has traded Nando De Colo to the Toronto Raptors for Austin Daye, league source tells Yahoo Sports.

UPDATE (3:20 PM)
Here’s the scoop on Nando de Colo. He’s a 6’5 combo guard who can handle the ball and sink open three-pointers at a respectable clip. He’s slated to earn $1.46 million this season, and he will be an unrestricted free-agent this offseason. He’ll probably split minutes at third-string point guard, and backup shooting guard.
With de Colo on board, the Raptors now have three capable ball-handlers off the bench. Austin Daye hasn’t seen the floor since Prince was on Apollonia, so good on Ujiri to turn dead fodder into potentially semi-conscious fodder.
More importantly, the passing of the trade deadline means Kyle Lowry will remain a Raptor for the remainder of the season, before becoming an unrestricted free-agent this offseason.
