Quincy Acy To Play In China

Veteran NBA big man Quincy Acy will continue his career overseas, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando, who hears from a source that Acy has agreed to a deal with the Shenzhen Leopards in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Acy, 28, has logged 337 total NBA regular season games since 2012, suiting up for the Raptors, Kings, Knicks, Mavericks, Nets, and Suns during that stretch. Most recently, the former second-round pick inked a pair of 10-day contracts with Phoenix in January, averaging 1.7 PPG and 2.5 RPG in 10 games (12.3 MPG) for the Suns.

Having failed to catch on with another NBA team after his 20-day stint with the Suns, Acy headed to the G League, where he appeared in three games for the Texas Legends, Dallas’ affiliate. JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors reported several days ago that Acy had left the Legends, who wished him good luck in China (via Twitter).

Shenzhen ranked fourth in the CBA’s regular season standings, earning a first-round bye in the postseason, so Acy will have plenty of time to join the club in advance of the second round.
