Nothign to say here. Austin Daye suck.
The signing has "Signing Fields was a Awful idea" written all over it. BC's biggest blunder hurt us huge this summer
Daye is a wing player. Great length, terrible strength. He can't dribble the ball for a wing, can't rebound if many are assuming small ball, can ONLY shoot the 3, can't defend.
Sure, he's cheap, but holy, I'm sure $1 million per year (2 yrs, 2 mil) could have had a far more skilled young player.
Not at all in favour of this signing.
Just a filler on the bench, not sure why everyone is up in arms
Can block shots and shoot the three. If I were Terrence Ross I would start getting worried. Ujiri keeps signing players that can do what he shoot 3's. Which he hasn't proved he can actually do.
How is 25 years old not young?
I remember hearing so many rave reviews about Daye when he was entering his rookie year... Well from everybody except Hollinger.
Honestly, I don't care about this move. Next up?
Just thought I would mention that MU has slowly created the following scenario (Acy, Amir, Aaron, KL obviously non MU pieces)
Austin Daye - 2 years 2nd year non guaranteed.
Amir Johnson - 2 years 2nd year non guaranteed.
Aaron Gray - 1 year expiring
DJ Augustin - 1 year expiring
Quincy Acy - 2 years 2nd year non guaranteed
Dwight Buycks - 2 years 2nd year non guaranteed
Tyler Hansbrough - 2 years 2nd year non guaranteed
Kyle Lowry - 1 year expiring
Q-Rich - 3 years 2nd and 3rd year not guaranteed
Rudy - 2 years (2nd year player option)
Only DeMar Novak, JV, Ross and Landry are guaranteed beyond this season
I'm cool with this signing. He's a stretch 4, which the team lacked so he brings some more versatility to the lineup. He had a .531 TS% last year and shot .418 3pt%. He also shot .765 FT%. So a pretty good shooter. Those who said he is a better version of Bargs are spot on. He rebounds slightly better than Bargs, and is a much better shot blocker. We needed more shooters so why not? He's young, cheap, and can easily earn that contract. In addition, he might turn into a long term role player off the bench since he is young enough to grow with this squad. Glad to see Ujiri taking chances on guys like this instead of junk like John Lucas or Caron Butler.
If 25 isn't young does that mean at 28 I'm old?
