    I like Acy, but don't understand the pick. If you wanted a tough guy who can rebound they should have held onto Joey Dorsey. I would have thought the pick could have been better used on another wing player.

    One thing I will say is that DeMar and Ed Davis better step up 'cause Casey has his finger prints all over both these picks. He wanst guys that can defend and have a motor. T. Ross can defend and Acy has enough of a motor to make Ed Davis look like he's going backwards.

    Acy pick was horrendous IMO. Undersized 4 who will be lucky to make the team. The guy they missed out on went right after to Denver. Quincy Miller actually has a position and has potential to be a very good player. It boggles my mind how BC went with a Acy over Miller. With as bad as the team is you have to go best player available as it's talent the roster is lacking. They took need over BPA @ 8 but 37 made no sense as there is no need for Acy on the roster. I'm praying there is some trade on the table to explain this. I don't take mock drafts too seriously but Acy wasn't even on one that I read the last few weeks. Quincy Miller, Will Barton, Tyshawn Taylor & Doron Lamb will all be on rosters last year...

    Don't forget about Miller's knee. He represented much more of a gamble (even for a 2nd round pick).

    I think he's got a very real shot at making the final roster. Beating out Davis/Amir will not be too tough a task.
    He's an undersized rookie tweener. The last guy who came through here like that wasn't challenging anyone for time and was lucky to have a roster spot. That guy was a really hard worker as well. I'm not saying Acy won't make it, I'm saying it's highly unlikely that he makes it in the league. Like really low odds.

    Toronto Raptors: They took a guy in Terrance Ross that I like quite a bit, yet it feels like they could have traded down and gotten him after getting a few extra assets. Quncy Acy in the second round may be the most stupefying pick of the entire draft.

    The most stupefying pick of the entire draft ? Hmmmm...

    Maybe my glasses are a little rosy, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a Faried type career trajectory.

    At Baylor, everyone and their mother had their sights set on Miller, PJ3, and to a lessor extent, Pierre Jackson. Acy looks to have flown under the radar.

    Perhaps that was part of the culture change they are looking for. They want tough, team first guys, that can come in and do the dirty work from day one and play defense like Casey wants. Q. Miller is a project and has the game of a "me first" type player. I'm reaching here. Really don't know why they picked Acy as they have more talented players at that position. Really thought they should have tried for another wing with that pick.

    Taken at #37, PJ Tucker errr I mean Quincy Acy deserves a proper welcoming. He should see summer league and maybe a shot at making the team in the fall.
    Quincy Acy is James Johnsons New coach. (assuming they don't move him).

    James Johnson is a head case who needs someone behind him pushing him.
    Someone to come in and provide the same brand of defense and toughness but with an even bigger heart.
    Someone to keep him working on his jump shot.

    Duane Casey will have some very motivated wing players come camp time....

    Absolutely. The more I think about Acy and look at his video and stats, I love the pick.

    Faried is a fair comparison, too, although not the same prolific rebounder and Acy's crazy hair is on his face versus his head. Acy is 1/4 inch taller and has 3" advantage on wingspan.

    I think he is Reggie Evans with offensive game.


    Acy:
    78% ft shooter
    7'3" wingspan
    22/8 on 7/11fg and 8/8ft in Elite 8 vs Kentucky (aka Anthony Davis)
    explosive
    motor, motor, motor


    If ED is still on the roster come training camp he might finally be woken from his slumber or given a pillow at the end of the bench.

    Agree with Matt and Niklana. I absolutely loathed the pick last night but after thinking about it I like it. I don't love it, but he certainly fits the Casey mold and I didn't even realize he was that much bigger than Faried.

    Keep in mind Acy was probably the second most productive player on Baylor during the tourney, better than PJ3 AND Miller.

    Default NBA.com Profile Page

    Strengths:
    * Competes/motor
    * 7-foot-4 wingspan
    * Explosive leaper
    * Good rebounder
    * Solid defender
    * Makes free throws
    * Can make midrange jump shot
    * Good passer in traffic

    Weaknesses:
    * Size a question mark to some
    * Has to improve at creating off the dribble

    NBA projection:
    Acy has been projected as a second-round pick, and he's got a chance to impress an NBA team with his combination of athleticism, willingness to perform blue-collar tasks and character. He's also a competitor with a motor that is stuck on high gear.

    2011-12 Season:
    Acy was one of Baylor's glue guys as it advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight for the second time in three years. Acy lead the Bears in field-goal percentage, blocked shots and offensive rebounds and was a leader on and off the floor.

    Key statistics:
    12.0 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.9 tpg, 0.9 spg, 1.8 bpg, 29.7 mpg, .577 FG, .600 3PT, .782 FT

    Cool statistic:
    Nearly half (48.5 percent) of Acy's career field goals were dunks (244 of 503).

    Reminds me of:
    Gerald Wallace

    What Insiders Say:
    Baylor coach Scott Drew
    "For those who never saw Quincy Acy as a freshman, if he didn't dunk, there was no way he could score. And that's five on zero, one on zero. I mean, the old Mikan drill. He couldn't get two in a row. And the fact he's worked this hard to develop his game, it's a real credit and testament to him. I know he's got the beard and everything, but he's a year younger. He could have stayed in high school another year. And just to see him mature -- that's why you get into coaching, to see guys come on -- he was a little kid, and now he left a man."

    What Outsiders Say:
    Xavier coach Chris Mack
    "He's a cage rattler. We knew that. He's just ... I want to see his birth certificate. He's that kid, when you're coaching AAU and you look over, and he just looks so much bigger and stronger than everybody. We knew about him a couple of years ago. He was terrific in Orlando when we lost to Baylor. More of the same today. I can take some of the offensive rebound put-backs, but when he starts facing up and hitting jump shots, it's not what the doctor ordered. It's not fair."

    I am really liking this pick. Even if he doesn't get court time, practice intensity just went up a notch.

    He seems like the SF version of Amir. If another big name SF is targeted to the starter and Kleiza is unlikely to be moved, I would think that this pick could spell the end of JJ.

    Regardless of who/what is targeted, it seems like at least 1 PF (Davis) and 1 SF (JJ) are expendable. If Nash is indeed acquired, then I would think that both Calderon and Bayless can be added to the 'trade bait' list.

    I look at Acy as a PF right now. Maybe he evolves in time but right now he is an undersized PF with a ridiculous wingspan.

    You think he can play PF? His combine measurement was under 6'8" in shoes... that seems more than a little undersized, unless they're playing small ball.

    I could see Davis and JJ being moved, presumeably for a starting SF. Amir is backup PF, Kleiza is backup SF and Acy is 3rd string tweener at both positions, played situationally. In small lineups, I could see all three of them being on the court together in the 2nd unit, with Acy at PF.

    Matt mentioned it before, but he's actually taller and has a longer winspan than Faried. Same type of motor.

    Short answer: yes.

    He was 6'7.75" in shoes. He is 3/4 of an inch shorter than Reggie Evans and taller than Faried by 1/4 inch - longer wingspan than both. Jason Maxiell is 6'6.25" with a 7'4" wingspan. Paul Millsap is 6'7.25" with a 7'1.25" winspan.


    All measurements in shoes.

    Acy might be ok but the thing is that you can pick up a guy like him on the cheap any time (ie. Reggie, Dorsey, Rolando Balkman, etc..). Why not use the second round pick to take a very low risk, high reward gamble like Miller? Boggles my mind.
