    No I just see scenarios where Daye is one corner and Novak is in the other. Situationally because of his shooting ability I can see a chance of him stealing SOME minutes from Amir and Hansbrough.

    Interesting? adding a scrub who will only get garbage minutes is interesting?

    Believe me, Daye is not going to take mins away from Fields or Ross.
    That's what we said about AA last summer.

    Terrence Ross hasn't proven himself as an NBA player any more than Austin Daye. If Terrence Ross is disappointment Landry could take his minutes that leaves some minute at the 3.

    Naw Daye is a perimeter player, like an extremely poor mans KD he isnt going to be playing any minutes as a big. Hes a cheap alternative coming in case of injury to our wings and extra push for Ross and Fields to get their acts together.

    Anderson was an unknown last summer. Daye on the other hand has been in the league for 4-5 years now. So you know what type of player he is. Major difference.

    7 page thread for Austin Daye?? WOW.
    This is the new Everything Bargnani Thread, 'cept we didn't draft him and he's only making peanuts, and he hasn't played for us yet to hate him so much. Ok, it's nothing like the #7 thread... btw, I hope nobody ever wears #7 again for this franchise. That number should be retired to the Shit Rafters. ##7isNowBanned

    We know he can shoot the ball. Something that Ross hasn't proved he can consitently yet.

    You knew AA can shoot the ball like that going into last season?

    I don't know about you. But i didn't know what to expect about AA going into last season. I didn't know anything about him. I didn't know his game. I didn't know he can shoot the ball like that. Like i said, he was an unknown going into last season.

    I'm talking about Austin Daye. We did know AA could shoot the ball. He played like 20 games 11-12. He got called up from the D League. He had a couple big games close to the end of that year. He even started a couple games.

    Coach Kuester speaking about Daye's Sophmore year and how he can improve for his third year. Too bad he was fired and replaced that summer. Could we of seen more from Daye? This league is all about oppurtunity. AA proved that this year.

    Highlights of this past season. All im saying is that Ross, Fields and Novak better come prepared for training camp. Out of all of Massai's low risk high reward signing his the one im more excited about.

    I was going to start a new thread about Masai drafting strategy, but maybe it's not worth it so I will just mention my thoughts here.

    There seems to be a pretty consistent theme in what he has done so far (I mean aside from finding low cost players). I suggest that almost everyone he has picked up so far (maybe outside of Hansbrough) has had a particular reason for not performing better. It's almost like he has instructed his scouting staff "go find role players who have reasons for not performing better in their roles. Coaches whose systems don't suit the player, players in situations where they aren't going to get noticed, players who had injury issues that held them back or players that have a flaw in their games that no one has bothered to fix."

    It's been mentioned many times that these guys are low risk, but all of them also have the potential to do quite well in certain circumstances. And any of them might become worthwhile trade chips down the road. I can see some of these guys going in situational trades to teams who have suffered injuries and need a role specialist at the 12th spot on the bench come trade deadline, as the playoffs start looming.

    Might be my imagination, but Masai would seem to be operating on multiple levels.

    Good observation and dont disagree but imo what is also important.....and we wont know until the season begins....is how these acquisitions will complement the crew already here and the system/s to be employed going forward.

    I have no problem being considered on the Masai bandwagon. But I'm also critical enough to take a dump on the driver of said bandwagon should he get us stuck in the mud. Thus far I have weighed every transaction the man has made since his arrival and concluded he hasn't made one false move. If that puts me on his bandwagon so be it.
    You kind of said you would jump off the bandwagon if he made one false move..which is a tad ridiculous. Just tryng to understand where you're coming from..

    At this point in time Daye is a better player than Ross.
