HoopsHype Austin Daye rumors


July 31, 2013 Updates

Scouts will tell you Daye can’t guard me (in fact, that’s precisely how one league guy put it last week) and that he’s a bit scrawny and needs to bulk up somehow to have any chance at doing something significant. But he can stretch defences, one guy told me that Daye could possibly be a three in some odd circumstances and he’s got a bit of promise if he ever bulks up. A couple of other teams – specifically Miami and the Lakers – were sniffing around the former No. 15 draft pick but he picked Toronto. Toronto Star

A few teams have expressed interest in Daye, most recently the Los Angeles Lakers. No signing is imminent at this point, but Daye worked out for Lakers officials on Wednesday. Since his 2012-13 season came to an end, Daye has been working out at Impact Basketball in Las Vegas, where he trains every summer and holds his own against fellow NBA players. It’s clear that Daye has the talent to make it in the league – he just needs to find a team that can help him grow and make the most of his skills. HoopsWorld

During the Grizzlies' playoff run, tensions turned to a confrontation when Hollins exploded during a practice session upon finding Hollinger had walked onto the practice court and engaged forward Austin Daye during a shooting drill, multiple sources told Yahoo! Sports. With the team watching – and with a motive to show his players that he was completely in charge on the floor, sources said – Hollins loudly questioned Hollinger about what he was doing, and why he believed it was appropriate for a management official to intrude on what's considered sacred territory for a coach and team, sources said.

Prince was indeed going to Memphis but it was Daye who would be accompanying him rather than Maggette. "When L. Frank walked out and told me to go into his office, I knew something was up because that hasn't happened in four years," Daye said, referring to Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, who summoned the fourth-year forward so president of basketball operations Joe Dumars could break the news over the phone. "I was kind of shocked. There's a negative and a positive. Negative is I'm moving away from a city that was always good to me and I've got a lot of friends (in Michigan). But there's a lot of positives. "Going to a team with a winning record, it will be a good experience." Booth Newspapers
