The Atlanta Hawks will sign Austin Daye to a second 10-day contract on Wednesday.

Daye has played just nine total minutes in two games with the Hawks, so this move is purely for bench-depth purposes. While Daye could get some run with Mike Scott (toe) out, his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

The Hawks have signed G/F Austin Daye to a 10-day contract on Sunday.

The Hawks will be without Mike Scott (toe) for at least a month, so Daye cold potentially carve out a decent role off the bench for the Hawks. That being said, Daye probably won't see big minutes right out of the gate, meaning owners in deeper leagues should use a wait-and-see approach.
Mar 15 - 1:06 PM

The Hawks are reportedly planning on signing G/F Austin Daye out of the NBA D-League.

The Hawks recently lost Mike Scott to a toe injury and let Jarell Eddie's 10-day contract expire, so they could use the added depth. That being said, Daye likely wouldn't be in the rotation in Atlanta right out of the gate, so there is no need to look his way in most leagues. Daye will reportedly sign the contract on Sunday, so we will let you know when the deal becomes official.
Mar 14 - 11:37 AM

Austin Daye will play for the Erie Bayhawks in the D-League.

It's a Magic affiliate and Daye will likely wind up on a 10-day deal with an NBA club at some point this season. Fantasy owners can keep him on the wire.
Feb 16 - 8:37 PM

The Spurs have waived Austin Daye on Saturday in order to make room for JaMychal Green.

Daye has only averaged 10.3 minutes per game this season, and the Spurs probably just wanted to get a good look at Green after his impressive showings for the Austin Spurs in the NBA D-League. Daye can be cut across the board while Green will have a lot of work to do before popping up on the radar in most leagues.

Austin Daye followed up Saturday's double-double with a mere five points and two rebounds in another start for the short-handed Spurs on Tuesday.

Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Marco Belinelli (groin) were both unavailable, yet Daye played only seven minutes before ceding the court to Cory Joseph, Manu Ginobili and other reserves. Daye's flash-in-the-pan production is meaningless on a season-long basis, and fantasy owners are better off ignoring his rare outbursts.
Jan 13 - 9:46 PM

Austin Daye had one of his patented out-of-nowhere games against the Wolves on Saturday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He has one of these games just about every year, and almost every time he comes back with nothing the next time out. Daye did not play in any of his previous four games, so this is one of his more surprising big games. This is Gregg Popovich at his finest.
Jan 11 - 1:50 AM

Austin Daye double-doubled against the Wolves on Friday with 13 points, 11 boards, three assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He actually handled the ball a lot down the stretch thanks to garbage time and Cory Joseph (ankle) going down. The Spurs will likely work Manu GInobili in as the point guard behind Tony Parker for as long as Joseph is out. There's little reason to add Daye in anything but an extremely deep league.

Austin Daye started at center in Friday's loss to the Suns, and he managed six points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two threes in 19 minutes.

You read that right, center. Pop could get away with that against a smaller Suns squad and Daye will need to do this and more many times before we pay any attention.

Austin Daye is starting for Boris Diaw on Friday against the Suns.

Pop is doing his thing early and it looks like he's preparing for a track meet to start the game. Daye is still nowhere near close to being a fantasy option and probably won't be seeing more than 20 minutes.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 09:24:00 PM

Austin Daye scored a team-high 17 points against the Suns on Thursday, adding six rebounds, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes.

With coach Gregg Popovich not even in Phoenix, he still manage to "pop" his team with several guys not even traveling. Daye has no fantasy value.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 12:45:00 AM

The Spurs are not expected to waive forward Austin Daye.

Daye has gotten way more pub than his production deserves, but theoretically sticking around San Antonio is a good thing for his long-term outlook. He's still way off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 07:03:00 PM

Austin Daye started for Tim Duncan on Friday night and had two points, one rebound, one assist, two steals and one block in 14 minutes.

Coach Gregg Popovich has transformed a lot of players, but he couldn't get it done with Daye. He has a lot of potential to put up big lines, but he's rarely been able to come through for fantasy owners since his days with the Pistons. He can be ignored in all leagues.

Austin Daye will start in place of Tim Duncan on Friday night vs. the Suns.

It makes sense because Channing Frye is not exactly an imposing threat in the paint, so this isn't really coach Gregg Popovich being a mad scientist. Daye has been quiet all season with the exception of a big game vs. Philly, so it would take a big slice of crazy to start him in fantasy leagues.
