    SPOKANE, Wash. - Not every Zag has reason to celebrate the day after the NBA draft.  While four Zags were eligible to be drafted, only one - Austin Daye - was selected.  Daye went as the No. 15 pick to the Detroit Pistons, while Josh Heytvelt, Jermey Pargo and Micah Downs were left wondering about their future.More >>

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga forward Austin Daye will play for the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons selected the forward from California, making him the 15th player selected in Thursday night's draft.

Daye will become a teammate of former Eastern Washington Eagle Rodney Stuckey, who has made a name for himself as the Pistons point guard.

Talking from his home in Spokane, Gonzaga assistant coach Ray Giacoletti sung Daye's praise, saying he made the right decision by leaving Gonzaga to play in the NBA. 

Three other former Zags will also be keeping a close eye on the draft.  Josh Heytvelt is projected by ESPN to go early in the second round.  Jeremy Pargo and Micah Downs could be free agent singees.
