Quincy Acy to Toronto Raptors: Scouting Report, Video Highlights and Analysis
One of the true fan favorites from the 2012 NCAA tournament is officially a member of the NBA.
Quincy Acy of the Baylor Bears made a name for himself as the hardest-working player on the floor for the Baylor Bears. The four-year forward crashed the boards, defending multiple positions and flushing home some powerful dunks. Now, Acy will make a name for himself by doing the same things at the NBA level.
Here are a few reasons why.
What Acy Brings to the Team
Quincy Acy has faced some questions about what position he is best fit to play. Regardless of where a team decides to place him, the 6'7" physical specimen will make his impact in the paint and on the defensive perimeter.
Acy is a solid rebounder, tenacious defender and physical low-post presence. He's also exceptional at scoring in the paint, as he can take contact and still finish strong.
What Experts Are Saying
Leading up to the draft, Quincy Acy suffered from the senior syndrome. Scouts and general managers kept their distance as they channeled their focus towards the younger weapons. Nevertheless, their eyes never truly moved away from Acy's name.
He's undersized and lacks a lot of skills offensively, but he's so long, explosive and relentless in the paint that you quickly forget his deficiencies. Sitting courtside and watching him live, it's hard not to come away in love with his motor. He truly tries to go after every ball and can dominate the game at both ends. If his teammate Perry Jones had that motor, he'd be far and away the clear favorite for the No. 1 pick.
Isn't that the truth about PJ3? More importantly, doesn't that make Acy that much more dangerous?
What is Quincy Acy's Upside?
Quincy Acy is a 6'7" tweener whose athleticism enables him to play the 3 but skill set places him at the 4. Due to his 7'3" wingspan, that may not be such a bad place for Acy to be.
As a rookie, Acy's length and work ethic may be enough to get him some playing time. Those believing they'll see anything more than 10 to 15 minutes a night, however, should temper those expectations.
The Raptors need whatever they can get, but small forward has been a particularly big need. With Acy they get a lot of energy, someone who can finish in the paint and a dependable if not spectacular shooter.
