Darren Keefe Daye (born November 30, 1960) is a retired American professional basketball player. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, at a height of 6'8", and a weight of 220 lbs., he played as a shooting guard-small forward.
Daye played high-school basketball with John F. Kennedy High School, in the Granada Hills district of Los Angeles. Daye was the Most Valuable Player of the 1979 McDonald's All-American Game. Playing for the West team, Daye recorded a double-double, with 22 points and 14 rebounds. It was not enough though, as the West lost the game by one point.
Daye was selected by the Washington Bullets, in the third round (57th pick overall) of the 1983 NBA draft. Daye played in five NBA seasons, from 1983–1988, with the Bullets, Chicago Bulls, and Boston Celtics. Daye's season with the Celtics in 1987–88, was his final season in the NBA. One of his most notable games was Game 4 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks when he scored a huge field goal as well as the deciding free throws, all in the second overtime, helping the Celtics win the game.
Daye's son, Austin Daye, played with Gonzaga University's men's basketball team, and he was drafted into the NBA by the Detroit Pistons, with the 15th pick of the 1st round of the 2009 NBA draft. Austin also won an NBA championship with the San Antonio Spurs, after they defeated the Miami Heat, in the 2014 NBA Finals.
