Turns out Austin Daye has a little more time on his hands these days than he expected.
The former Woodbridge High basketball star is now an NBA player locked out by the league along with all the league's players because of a labor dispute. But Daye, who has played two seasons for the Detroit Pistons, was scheduled to conduct his second annual basketball camp this August in Irvine, NBA lockout or not.
Daye averaged 31 points and 12 rebounds his senior season at Woodbridge and went on to play collegiately atGonzaga, where he averaged 11.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in two seasons with the Bulldogs.
He entered the NBA draft in 2009 and was taken by the Pistons in the first round, the 15th player taken overall. Daye said his camp is a way for him to give back to the community and give kids an opportunity that some kids might not otherwise get.
