The Suns are 9-31 on the season, 15th place in the Western Conference standings.
Acy, 28, has career averages of 5.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 327 NBA games while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor, 35.6 percent from the 3-point line and 76.1 percent from the foul line. He played his college basketball at Baylor University.
The Suns currently have rookie Deandre Ayton and Richaun Holmes playing heavy minutes at the big man position. It’s unclear if Quincy Acy will even last beyond his 10-day contract, but when he gets minutes, he will provide energy, defense and rebounding.
It’s another rebuild season in Phoenix. They are going to be a lottery team once again. That might be a good thing, though, since Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish from Duke will likely enter the 2019 NBA Draft.
