On a number of NBA draft and general websites, people seem to think that the Wizards are very high on Jan Vesely. Vesely seems like a good prospect, plays hard, exciting, can run with Wall, etc. Whether he can become a star or not, who knows, so why not trade for a similar player with NBA experience like Austin Daye.
Daye is a big-time prospect. He is the same height as Vesely. He is long, athletic, and can get to the rim easier than most. He could end being a solid wing player and running mate with Wall. He has been stuck playing in Detroit with a very dysfunctional group. He has had uneven minutes and no point guard during his time in the NBA.
I think the Pistons would trade Daye for the 6th pick. Detroit has new ownership. Joe Dumars can impress his new boss by having two lottery picks in the upcoming draft.
On a scale of 1-10(Kevin Durant), Daye could be a solid 8.5. All Daye needs is consistent playing time and to get stronger. His height can cover up his deficiencies on defense and Wall can cover up his deficiencies on offense. Worst case scenario, if he can't guard and/or score on SFs, he can be moved to SG. His quickness and height would be a matchup nightmare for SGs. When SGs play him on defense, he would be a half a foot taller than his defender, so he would be able to shoot uncontested with ease. As everybody knows, the 2012 draft is loaded with SF prospects, so moving Daye to SG is realistic.
I think Daye could end up being a solid second-tier superstar. He is a good candidate to help the Wizards rebuild with.
