Default From what I've seen of Austin Daye...

he reminds me of Jared Jeffries. Just for kicks, here's Jeffries stats at Indiana

Freshman

32.6 mpg
13.8 ppg
6.9 rpg
1.2 bpg
.9 spg
44.2 fg%
24.5 3fg%

Sophomore

32.6 mpg
15.0 ppg
7.6 rpg
1.3 bpg
1.5 spg
45.7 fg%
38.0 3fg%

Similar frame (both in that 6'10" range and slim) and both choose to face the basket rather than use their height and length. NBA position is kind of unkown for Daye. Jeffries was projected to be a sf, tall enough to be a pf, and at one point was the Knicks starting sg.

Should Daye become a lottery pick in the '09 draft, I'm choosing him as my bust right now. It's bold, and he could easily prove me wrong. But right now I don't see much in him.

good comparison- size & even close stats

i think daye is more skilled than jeffries, especially as a shooter- the guy has a great outside shot

sure daye has a long ways to go to reach his potential, but his "ceiling" is as high or higher than pretty much any other potential draft picks- so even when he is drafted i see him drafted on potential as much as proven history

i see daye as fitting best in the nba as a pf- both offensively & defensivly- obviously needs to gain weight & strength, but at 6-11 dayes high post game w his passing & shooting could be very good- he is much more natural defensively inside & has plus potential as a shotblocker & rebounder

also w gonzaga as far as stats keep in mind how loaded the team was day's freshman year w upperclassmen, and how loaded w talent this years team is- daye imo still stands out as one of the most made for the nba players in college this year- if daye comes out in this draft, he is a for sure top 10 pick (& will grow to deserve it eventually)
