Report: Suns add veteran big man Quincy Acy on 10-day contract

Associated Press

The Phoenix Suns need help… well, pretty much across the board. But they could use a little more depth along the front line, some three-point shooting, someone to bring energy, and veteran leadership.

Enter Quincy Acy, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Acy played the last couple of seasons in Brooklyn, where he was a power forward who could stretch the floor, and he was a small ball five (very small at 6’7″). He’s a guy who relies on his jump shot almost exclusively, last season 80 percent of his shots were threes and he hit 34.9 percent of them. The problem is he has no touch inside the arc (38 percent on twos, just 50 percent shooting at the rim last season), and while he is a high-motor player fans like he’s undersized and can be exploited defensively. The Nets did not bring him back after last season and he could not land a contract anywhere else last summer.

It’s a 10-day contract and the Suns are desperate for some help, so this isn’t the worst flier ever taken. We’ll see if anything comes of it.
