Austin DayeLess than a week before playing the do-or-die Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds, one of last year's survivors, BC Khimki Moscow Region, added some size and scoring punch by signing Austin Daye to a two-month contract. Daye (2.11 meters, 23 years old) arrives from the Detroit Pistons of the NBA, where last season he averaged 7.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 72 games. Daye played college ball in Gonzaga from 2007 to 2009. Daye is expected to make his European debut with Khimki at next week's qualifying rounds. Khimki faces PGE Turow of Poland in the first game of an eight-team showdown in Charleroi, Belgium. The winner after three games in Charleroi will go to the 2011-12 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season starting the third week of October.
