The Sacramento Kings were set to make a decision on the roster spot of Quincy Acy by Saturday, but the team has agreed to delay the decision until August 15th.
Presumably finding a common ground with Acy and his representatives, the Sacramento front office will now have until the middle of next month to figure out a way to fit Acy’s near $1 million dollar contract onto the roster, this according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.
There was plenty enough reason to love Quincy Acy enough as is, in terms of being a fan favorite thanks to his relentless motor and tireless work ethic. However, the 23-year-old showed off new, impressive set of offensive skills during the Las Vegas Summer League and could prove to be even more valuable this coming season.
Jones went on to note that Sacramento’s courting of Omri Casspi has little to do with Acy’s roster spot and showing interest in the small forward is not a sign the team is/was looking to move on from Quincy Acy.
Sounds like there is a potential for some moves (likely minor) before August 15th as the Kings seem interested in retaining Acy, though certainly want to clear up their logjam at power forward.
