    MU basically took a cheap flier on him. There's a dozen guys i would have rather had but i'll trust MU on it.

    At least he's a good 3 point shooter.
    I think MU just rather fill a roster spot with someone young and with some sort of potential (in this case, potential to be a decent role player).

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Age is just a number if you don't make use of it. He hasn't shown any proof that he constantly works on his game since he came into the league, and hasn't gotten any better. He could be 35 for all its worth. He hasn't shown improvement and just because he's 25 isn't reason to believe he will improve.

    Stop being a dick and deal with it. He can talk how he wants as long as he's not directly insulting someone personally.

    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?

    Perception of age in terms of young/old is subjective. The league average is 26.7 years.
