Another first-round pick by Dumars, Daye has been inconsistent since coming to the NBA in 2009.
Coming off his rookie season, Daye averaged 7.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game in his second NBA season. This season, he has regressed and looks the way he did when he was a rookie. Through 25 appearances this season, Day has averaged 5.2 points, 1.2 turnovers and 15.7 minutes each game.
On defense, Daye is not strong enough to guard any small or power forwards. He is listed at 6’10”, 200 pounds.
What makes Daye expendable is that he only has one year remaining on his rookie contract, and he is a work in progress. He needs to work on his consistency and build his frame. If he is able to do so, he has the potential to become a solid role player for a team.
