Sham Charania of The Vertical reports that the Brooklyn Nets will sign Quincy Acy a two-year deal. Further details are not yet included.
Brooklyn is signing forward Quincy Acy to a two-year deal, league sources tell The Vertical. Acy has played well over two 10-day contracts.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 29, 2017
Acy, 26, was signed to his first 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets on January 10. His first day on the job, he told NetsDaily that he's, "Just trying to make it." And so he did.
In 11 games with the team, Acy averaged seven points, 2.7 rebounds and hit 11 of his 17 attempted 3-pointers (64.7 percent) -- the most improved aspect of his game since re-entering the league. Acy signed a second 10-day contract with the team on January 20 and appeared to fit the gritty persona that Kenny Atkinson and Sean Marks seem to appreciate.
"His perimeter shooting is obviously intriguing, the way he's shooting the ball," Atkinson said after the second-to-last game on his 10-day contract. "I don't think it's an anomaly. I can see the way he gathers it and his balance and how he realizes it. Why can't this guy be a pretty good shooter in this league, 3-point shooter? So we're intrigued. He's done well."
The signing barely affects the Nets cap space, which remains the largest in the NBA.

The team now has signed all three of their D-League call-ups since Sean Marks joined the team as GM: Sean Kilpatrick, Spencer Dinwiddie and now Acy. The Nets also signed Joe Harris this summer largely on the basis of his D-League record last season. If their contracts are any guide, Acy is guaranteed this season with a team option for 2017-18.
The Nets have no contracts guaranteed beyond 2017-18. Jeremy Lin has a player option on his third year, 2018-19, and Brooklyn has team options on four rookie deals, those of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Chris McCullough, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead.
