Quincy Acy demonstrated some of the virtues he has as an NBA player while getting action in 29 games at an average of 11.8 minutes per contest: he can shoot the ball rather well. His defensive and rebounding skills can also be impressive at times.
Acy is looking for a permanent roster spot with the Toronto Raptors this season and more playing time. He showed a little bit of potential. In the limited amount of time he got for 2012-13, he averaged 4.0 and 2.7 rebounds per game.
Usually, Acy doesn’t take foolish shots. Last season with the Raptors, he shot 56.0% from the floor, 50.0% in 3-pointers and 81.6% from the free-throw line. After he completed his four seasons at Baylor, Acy ranked second all-time in blocked shots at 177. His defense can also have an impact on the Raptors’ attack.
During Las Vegas Summer League, Acy enjoyed enough success to suggest he can help the Raptors in a reserve role at center. He saw action in 27.6 minutes per game and averaged 14 points and 6.2 rebounds. His steals average was at 1.2 per game. Defensively, he could be a constant pain against Toronto opponents.
The Raptors will look at Acy to be a more consistent outside shooter if he wants to be a part of the team’s rotation. Regardless, there’s a good chance he can have a major impact on the Raptors’ season. His defensive and rebounding skills will give the Raptors some valuable options in his rotation for every game, as long as Acy can develop some consistency in his second season.
