Report: Suns to sign Quincy Acy to a 10-day contract

The Phoenix Suns are planning to sign veteran power forward Quincy Acy to a 10-day contract, according to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Atheltic.

Quincy Acy spent last season with the Brooklyn Nets. He played in 70 games and averaged 5.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per contest while shooting 35.6 percent from the field.

The Suns are 9-31 on the season, 15th place in the Western Conference standings.

Quincy Acy began his NBA career in 2012 with the Toronto Raptors. He has also played for the Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Nets.

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.
