    Default Quincy Acy Signed.

    I don't know if this was seen yet, but just want to make sure! I didn't see a thread on it :S

    http://blog.raptors.com/press-releas...ck-quincy-acy/

    The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have signed forward Quincy Acy to a multi-year contract. The Raptors selected Acy with the 37th selection in the 2012 NBA Draft. Per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Acy had six points and six rebounds in his NBA Summer League debut with Toronto on Friday.

    Acy, 6-8, 225 pounds, averaged 12.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 29.7 minutes in 38 starts last season at Baylor. He was named Big 12 All-Defensive team (unanimously) and All-Big 12 Second Team by the coaches. He is the second player in Bears history to finish his collegiate career ranked in the Top 10 in scoring, rebounding, blocked shots and field goal percentage.

    As a senior, Acy had eight double-doubles, 10 double-digit rebounding games and 22 games with multiple blocks. He was Baylorís lone NCAA South Regional All-Tournament Team selection. He recorded 22 points and eight rebounds in his final game at Baylor, an Elite Eight NCAA Tournament loss to eventual NCAA Champion Kentucky.

    In his junior campaign, Acy led the Bears in rebounding (7.6 rpg) and blocks (1.5 bpg) and finished third in scoring (12.4 ppg). He totaled a career-high 25 points and 11 rebounds vs. La Salle.

    I heard somewhere that it's not a guaranteed contract. Is that even possible?

    He is on a contract similar to Solo - 2 years guaranteed just above minimum and 3rd year not guaranteed.

    Year 1 $655k
    Year 2 $789k
    Year 3 $915k - not guaranteed.

    I too see potential in Acy. But it ain't gonna be easy competing for minutes with 3 guys ahead of him on the depth chart....

    I get the feeling that if Ed shows the same effort that he did last year in practices etc. Acy is going to beat the crap out of him and take his minutes. I can certainly see Casey sending a message about motor to him.

    Also, he's closer to 6'6" than 6'8" (withouth shoes). To put it in perspective, Harrison Barnes is taller than he is at 6'7" (without shoes) and plays SF.

    He'll carve out a niche on this team. Energy guy off the bench who'll mix it up on the floor when needed. Crazy, but i'm looking forward to seeing this guy play next year.

    I'm convinced they meant to pick Quincy Miller and not Quincy Acy, but someone in the organization got the names mixed up and submitted the incorrect information to the folks announcing the names during the draft. Obviously embarassing, so they couldn't back track and say they meant to take the other Quincy. Anyone from the Rap's organization been fired lately?

    I'm not sold on Acy after watching him in his brief time in the summer league. His highlight reels are impressive, but I am not sure he can play the 4 effectively in the NBA.

    However, here are some promising combine numbers:
    Best in Lane Agility Drill - 10.48
    3rd in hand length and 2nd in hand width

    And not so promising numbers:
    I am concerned about his weight for a guy that's supposed to bully people around (223 - less than barnes).
    7'2 wingspan
    8'10 reach

    Acy was the leader of Baylor.
    He is an energy guy and a hard worker.
    Acy is not going to play big minutes barring injury, blowout, or foul trouble.

    Just my opinion but Acy's selection is not about basketball talent.
    This whole culture thing requires people who have those values naturally present.
    Acy's job will be to bring the intensity in practice and, by example, force those with more talent to work.

    Maybe I am being a little too naive but Acy was drafted for the intangibles.
    Acy seems to exude many of the attributes Casey is looking for - he is certainly not a traditional BC pick.
    Given where the Raps have gone picking the 'sexy' or 'upside' picks the last few years, Acy might surprise many.


    Quincy Miller is extremely talented but since just about every team in the league passed on him once and 6 teams (including Toronto) passed on him twice, maybe there is something we are missing (heart? body? inability to play SF? just guesses on my part).
    I can only tell you that I jumped off the couch when I heard Quincy and immediately said, "WTF!?!?!" when I heard Acy.
    I hope my initial disappointment proven to be false.

    I'm still a bit baffled regarding the pick of Acy. Just don't see how he fits a need because he certainly couldn't be considered the best player available where the picked him. Guys like Joey Dorsey could have been had if you truly needed another big.

    I felt that the pick could have been better used on either a project player like Quincy Miller or event a third string pg like Tyshawn Taylor (instead of JL3). Instead they went with an undersized and under skilled "big" whom is a senior so has probably reached closer to his ceiling than most.

    My hope is that management was able to see some sort of intanglibles during private work outs which Acy has yet to display. The pick doesn't make much sense to me.

    I am in 100% agreement. Hopefully the guys making millions know more than Joe Blow at the keyboard.

    I would have thought Acy would have been available at 53.

    I am hoping/praying/thinking the rational of picking him is putting a young, hard working, tough player in amongst other young players and have him grow with them and hopefully rub off in terms of work ethic and intensity.

    Just to clarify, I have no idea if this is true or not - just speculation on my part.

    Well, both PJ3 and Q. Miller, whom were the two most talented players on the roster and guys pegged to be first rounders did look up to Acy as a leader, so you may be onto something there Matt.

    Quincy Acy, mark my words, will be another incoming Reggie Evans type player. He's not as defensively smart as Reggie Evans in terms of help-side and post, but he is more skilled than Evans offensively.

    Mark your words?

    How many games did you see him play @ Baylor?

    I saw him play a lot and his brief stint in Vegas. All I can say about Acy is this:
    1) he is one of the most NBA Ready players in the draft (drafted as a senior) his body is developed
    2) he wont get physically dominated like Ross will for the first couple of years.
    3) he will play his ass off and push anyone at 3-4 position who is not guarding their position
    4) he will be a very good practice player - will never be told "stop screwing around in practice and pay attention" *ahem* James Johnson
    5) He will never go rouge and will always play the system
    6) He will kiss DC's ass.
    Not sure who will win the JUST GLAD TO BE HERE award him or Allan Andersen.
    7) very good energy guy
    8) he is a complimentary piece like Reggie. Needs 3 scorers on the floor with him. They will never run a play for him nor will they need to.
    9) Is a good pick because the team suddenly has surrounded Derozen and Bargs with highly motivated and hungry players who will not suck out or take plays off and won't flake out at times during the season. *ahem* James Johnson.

    Would not be surprised if they match him with some 3's even Lebron type players who have size and strength.

    Will he get any minutes? will he get confidence at the NBA level? hard to say at this point he is starting way down on the pecking order going in to camp.

    You're telling me things I already know. A Reggie Evans type player would for sure be welcomed onto this roster.
