do you think austin daye will eventually start

for the pistons and become a important of the team. hes been tearing up the summer league with his play. averaging 17.0 ppg shooting .471 . plus hes rebounding good too 8.0 . i know its summer league. but if he keeps this up. the pistons might have to start him soon.

i think he will start in the

i think he will start in the future and be a very versatile scorer that should by a few years add muscle and a post up game that will enable him to play the PF or SF

i'll admit daye looked good

i'll admit daye looked good in summer league but don't let stats trick you. Joey Graham did well in summer league.

I give him a year because defense will kill him against NBA players until he gets stronger.

I agree with Shelton

He has to prove he will not be a liability on D then he will start. It looks like he is going to score no matter what.

even if they trade prince he

even if they trade prince he will come of the bench i think. they just signed gordon and villanueva. gordon isn´t going to play pg so the sg spot is locked, that leaves rip in the air and i think he will shift to sf which is daye´s nba position as he is to skinny for pf. where villanueva will start most likely.

that leaves you with a starting 5 of:

pg: stuckey ???
sg: gordon
sf: hamilton
pf: villanueva
c: maxiell ???

and if prince isn´t traded it will be even more difficult for him to get playing time!

Austin Daye isnt that bad defensively actually. His length gives players problem. I think he is definitely a future starter, no question. He has 20 point, 5 rebound, 5 asst potential. And he's 6'11, definite upside. He is going to be a good one.
