The Brooklyn Nets will have to make a decision on Quincy Acy before this Friday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Nets signed the 26-year-old to a 10-day contract on January 10, just hours before the matchup against Atlanta when he logged one minute in a blowout loss at home.
Overall, Acy logged a total of 29 minutes with one CD-DNP in five games with the team. He averaged 6.3 points, two rebounds and shot 57 percent in 7.5 minutes per game. He spent most of his time playing in the final minutes of blowout losses, however, in that time Acy showed that he’s a gritty, hard-nosed type of player that Kenny Atkinson and Sean Marks seem to appreciate. Although a small sample size, Acy also showed that he’s expanded his range and nailed three of his four 3-point attempts.
“Hard work is going to keep me on the court,” Acy told NetsDaily after his first game with the team. “That’s been my M.O. my whole career and I’m not going to change anything.”
He was also asked what he could bring to the team in a conference with reporters.
"High energy, toughness, defending at a high level and just competing. I’m just trying to make it."
In four seasons, Acy has played for five different teams including two stints with the Toronto Raptors and the Sacramento Kings.
Of course, the Nets can sign Acy to another 10-day, but after the second 10-day contract they can only retain him by signing him for the remainder of the season. If Sean Marks decides to retain Acy, it’ll likely come on Friday in order to give himself as many games as possible. Marks has shown his willingness to take a chance on players with 10-day contract, most recently Sean Kilpatrick who turned out to be a nice success story in Brooklyn.
