Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv is pleased to announce the signing of Quincy Acy (28, 2.01m). He is an explosive power-forward, agile around the rim and shows a very significant defensive presence in the paint. Acy is very tough on the court, a fighter and a very special personality off the court.
Quincy Acy comes with a 337 NBA games experience and is considered a fan favorite wherever he has played. He is a guy who trains hard, doesn’t complain, dynamic and has long hands. He is a player who inserts energy bursts into the team, a good offensive rebounder for his position and has greatly improved his shooting recently.
“Quincy Acy is a very experienced and high quality player from the NBA”, commented Giannis Sfairopoulos to maccabi’.co.il after the signing of the Forward. “I am very pleased and satisfied with his coming to our club”.
“I’m excited to put on the Maccabi jersey, to bring passion, grit, and energy every game as we fight to win and bring success”, Told Quincy Acy to maccabi.co.il. “I’m ready to get going, ready to get some wins. I’m ready to come to Tel Aviv with my family and join the fan base”.
Acy was the 37th pick in the 2012 draft by Toronto, where he played 29 games during the 2012/13 season. The following season he played again in Toronto and moved to Sacramento. In the 2014/15 season, he played for the New York Knicks and the following season returned to the Kings. He also played for Dallas, Brooklyn and Phoenix, where he started the previous season.
Two years ago he provided a very solid NBA season with 70 games and 20 minutes on average for the Nets. On April 2018 he registered one of his most impressive games in the NBA, with Brooklyn defeating the Chicago Bulls 96:124. Acy scored 21 points in 23 minutes. By the way, the Forward was picked 37th in the draft, while Draymond Green was the 35th pick that year.
One of the interesting stories about him is that after he got a CALL UP back to the NBA from Texas Legends to the Brooklyn Nets, he didn’t want his teammates to feel left behind. That’s why Quincy Acy purchased $250 worth of gift cards for each player and each one of his team members got a pair of shoes as a token of appreciation. He is a Texas native, married and has two children.
