and Daye might have a little range as well. I think they should work on their back to the basket games.
Daye does have a lot of range- a great high post/top of the key player, his shooting and passing are special, especially for someone 6-11- he is also a very good post defender even though he will get much better with more strength/weight
I love the idea of a "stretch 4" and think it is a good idea to try to use that- it pulls a defender used to playing near the basket away from the hoop- austin daye is a perfect example of this- if jerbeko is a player, I already believe in summers and daye- pistons might have had the best draft in the nba as I like the idea of getting taller and better shooting all in one offseason between the draft picks and cv
