    Default Zags in the NBA

    Can anyone tell me how many former Zags are on opening day NBA 12 man rosters?

    Sorry if this is posted somewhere else. I scrolled and didn't see anything.

    Thanks

    I believe the answer to your query is two. Ronny Turiaf at Golden State and Adam Morrison on the Lakers.

    Uhh... make that 3. Austin is on the Piston's roster as well.

    Austin who? I don't remember seeing any threads about an "Austin" in the last few months? Whoever he is, I wish him the best.

    Best of luck to all three! Ronny should get the most PT. Daye has been impressive, but inconsistent. I bet he will have his moments this year (like the block on Wade! That was sick!), but is probably a year or two away from making an impact. Adam is in a tough spot in regards to minutes. What does a scorer do when he is not asked to score?

    I'm so west coast-centric that I don't even think east of the Mississippi. So they decided to keep Austin, eh?
