Former Raptors Forward Quincy Acy Traded To Knicks

The Toronto Raptors drafted forward Quincy Acy 37th overall in 2012 and traded him to the Sacramento Kings last season along with Rudy Gay and Aaron Gray in the deal that brought Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson, Chuck Hayes and John Salmons to Toronto.

The Kings, making significant changes again this summer, have sent Acy and Travis Outlaw to the New York Knicks for Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Tyler and a second round draft pick as was re-tweeted by Acy.

 

  USA TODAY Sports Sam Amik says the Knick are guaranteeing Quincy’s contract for next season.  

 

Quincy has averaged 3.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 12.9 minutes in 92 games over 2 NBA seasons.

“No matter how old I get, no matter where I go, my skill is going to be energy,” Acy told Pro Bball Report. “I can add other things to my game, but my main skill is always going to be energy.”

Acy was a fan favorite in Toronto because of his work ethic and energy on the court and those attributes made him a popular player in Sacramento as well. Energy guys that can defend and score are always in short supply. The Knicks should be able to find a spot for him in their rotation.
