    Default Acy D-League Tracker!

    Acy's triumphant return to the d-league was pretty meh...

    117-108 Win over the Legends.

    27:51 min, 4-8 FGM-A, 3-8 FTM-A, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 11 Pts

    Again it kind of sucks for Acy that the only other NBA player on the team is Mike Scott from the Hawks who after watching a bit of the game last night is definitely better than Acy and plays the same position.

    Sadly on draft night, I actually thought Acy could be a rotation player. Boy was I wrong :|

    D-League, like Summer League, is not a great place for a guy like Acy.

    Very guard oriented with a lot of guys trying to get ahead vs. win.

    I could be wrong, just my opinion.

    I don't think Acy is a good rotational player at this point in time. I think he could be. He has shown lots of energy this year and has solid fundamentals on his shooting stroke. A hustle guy who will mix it up and can hit his FTs is not a bad thing.

    I agree that he could be. But on this roster, it doesn't look like he'll ever get the minutes to work on his game. There's only so much one can do in practice/film sessions/off-season.

    And there lies the problem.

    The coach of a non playoff team playing veterans and losing.

    At this point let the guys develop who at least have a shot at being here beyond another season or two.

    Who's minutes should he be taking? You have to play Bargs, especially if he plays like he did in GS just to bring up his trade value. I guess you could say Amir but he wants to play and he deserves to play. Acy is barely big enough to play the 4 so I don't think he can play the 5. I think it's a good idea to send him down to the d-league.

    Agreed. Most of us been saying that since the start of last season!

    I'm really starting to sour on BC, for his inability to find proper 'fit'. There are quality pieces on the roster, but they fit so poorly together. There is a quality coach in place, but he fits so poorly with a rebuilding team. I have issues with players and the coaching staff, but if there's poor 'fit' to begin with, then the plan was doomed to fail from the start.

    I could really care less about Acy, but seeing Ross & Valanciunas get so little burn has been beyond frustrating this season.

    Bargnani should be nailed to the bench. Putting him out there only undermines all the lip service to accountability and defense first that has been preached for 2 years.

    Nothing he does is going to change his trade value. There is nearly 7 years to base it on. The final 20 games isn't going to change a thing.

    The teams performance this year (Ws/Ls, defense) with Bargnani and without should also be an indication they are better off without him.

    Matt I get it. You're had it up to here with Bargnani. Me too man. Let's say we could magically trade Casey for any other NBA coach, I don't see any of them not playing Bargnani at all. Maybe I could see it if there was a draft pick involved but a top three pick at this point is pretty unlikely.

    And I disagree when you say nothing at this point is going to change his trade value. Before his GS game writers (not just TO ones) were all saying how historically bad Bargs has been playing. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say GM's have been noticing too. If he has a few more games like he did in GS he could go from untradeable to streaky shooter. I mean it could mean getting 30 or 40 cents to the dollar instead of 10.

    .
    I think you just described our play since Calderon was traded. The Raptors are not a great place to be for a young big man to develop.

    Thank goodness. I didn't think I was being clear enough. lol

    You raise good points. I hope you are right.

    +a million. NBA GMs will not be swayed by a few strong performances on the offensive end. Bargs is what he is. While I will say his trade value is its lowest, playing him won't make it higher. Though it won't matter because he will play, he will get shots, and the team will lose. BC won't have it any other way.
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    HE has played 15 minutes this season in 3 games.

    He is buried in Denver. Probably deepest perimeter in the league.

    Pretty early to tell still but three people at that spot that were available I would consider is Kim English, Mike Scott, and Kris Joseph (and not just cause he's Canadian. He is killing it in the D-league right now).

    But really no one is sticking out right now that was still available.

    I hope Colangelo picks up Kris Joseph in the summer before someone else does good defender mature kid has talent, athletic, 3 point threat hard worker Would be a great 3rd string wing on the bench.

    Acy will most likely be packaged in a deal to sweeten the pot I think or is kept never know its just hard to see what his future is.
