Austin Daye

In spite of the disappointment of the Pistons season, Daye didn't play over 1,000 minutes. This is partly because he didn't do very well, particularly defensively.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
