Daye’s Shooting Was Historically Bad

Austin Daye nearly set a franchise record last season, but it’s not something he’d put on a resume. Daye, a 6-foot-11 forward, attempted 227 field goals and made 73, a success rate of 32.2 percent. That was the franchise’s worst shooting performance by a player attempting at least 200 shots in 52 seasons.

Gary Alcorn shot a franchise-record low 29.2 percent during the 1959-60 season, making just 91 of 312 attempts. Walter Dukes shot 32.5 percent while attempting 255 field goals during the 1962-83 season.

During the last 50 seasons, Marcus Liberty holds the franchise record for field-goal futility with at least 100 attempts, shooting 31.0 percent on 116 attempts during the 1993-94 season.
