"Not right away," Daye said. "But I'll consider it if I feel I need to. It's important for me to get the games and experience of a third year. It's the most important year in the NBA. If the season isn't going to start on time I might look into playing games overseas."

Daye has other reasons to look forward to playing in the NBA next season. The Pistons let go of Coach John Kuester and are looking for a new coach.

"A new coach and a new system might be beneficial for me," Daye said, who also said he is trying to bulk up and increase his weight, listed at 205 pounds last season.


"I'm definitely gaining weight," Daye said. "It's been a priority of mine."
