Sacramento Kings must make decision on Quincy Acy's roster spot

When the Sacramento Kings acquired Quincy Acy in the Rudy Gay trade last season, he was thought to be nothing more than a throw-in. However the former Baylor product proved to be far more than just an additional piece needed for salary purpose.

His no-stop motor and tough nosed play earned a place in the heart of Kings fans, but did it do the same for the Sacramento front office? That’s something we’ll be finding out in the coming days as the team has until Saturday to exercise his team option for the 2014-15 season.

Forward Quincy Acy has a team option that must be picked up by Saturday to guarantee his contract for next season.

Quincy Acy’s option is relatively minimal by NBA standards at $915,000 dollars, so it’s unlikely price will hold the team back. Acy also showed off a much improved offense game during the NBA’s Summer League, so it seems logical that the Kings would pick up Acy’s option.

Of course, with a roster full of undersized power forwards the Kings may not want to waste another spot on such, though I have a hard time seeing them walk away from Acy – especially after his offensive improvement this offseason.
