But Phil Jackson’s Knicks are working on something a bit more obscure than a blown defensive assignment. “We’re getting in touch with our inner-beings, our inner-selves,” Quincy Acy says. “We’re just reflecting on how our bodies are feeling,” Travis Wear says. “It’s really just getting in touch with where your mind is at.” ESPN.com

The Magic tried to trade for Quincy Acy at the deadline and the Knicks wouldn’t take back any salary to make a deal happen. As for Faried. I wouldn’t touch that contract yet. There are a lot of things that Faried does that I like, but there are as many as I don’t. I wouldn’t tie that much cap space up in Faried in Orlando, he’s very unpredictable and hard to coach.

Acy called the incident “a learning experience for me,’’ adding he watched the replay. “Obviously nobody wants to get suspended, hey, what can I do?” Acy said at the morning shootaround. “I fouled him hard. The foul was unnecessary. I didn’t have to foul him that hard. Which is why I kept walking towards him and was about to help him up. He got up and pushed. Anybody’s initial reaction is to react. But then I stopped myself and tried to grab him.’’ New York Post

League disciplinarian Rod Thorn was in a holiday spirit in banning Acy just one game despite the fact he went after a league superstar on national TV. Thorn told The Post he didn’t consider it “a real fight.’’ Acy’s role as a Knicks enforcer keeps growing as he has made a number of hard fouls this season. “It was Christmas Day,’’ Acy said. “It didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to. It is what it is. Nobody wants to get suspended, but what can I do now?’’ New York Post

New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy has been suspended one game without pay by the NBA for his flagrant foul against John Wall in a Christmas game. The league said Friday that Wall was fined $15,000 for escalating the confrontation by pushing Acy. The NBA adds that Acy's flagrant foul 2 initiated an altercation in Washington's 102-91 victory Thursday. Wall was dribbling up the court when Acy knocked him down with a forearm shove with 5:31 remaining. Wall got up and pushed Acy, who swung his arm and appeared to hit Wall behind the neck and was ejected. USA Today Sports

Acy shoved Wall when the Wizards guard had the ball with 5:31 to play in the game. Wall retaliated with a shove, and things escalated from there. It was unclear whether Acy threw a punch during the skirmish, but both players had to be separated by teammates. Both Acy and Knicks coach Derek Fisher said that Acy did not throw a punch at Wall. "I didn't throw a punch. I got up and reacted, then I just grabbed him," Acy said. ESPN.com

Acy received a flagrant foul 2 and was ejected from the game. The league will review Acy's foul and may choose to fine or suspend him. The Knicks' next game is on Saturday against the Sacramento Kings. When asked about a possible suspension, Acy said, "I hope not. What was done wrong?" ESPN.com

In a bizarre turn of events, Quincy Acy, who may have the NBA’s longest beard, and one wilder than James Harden’s, has emerged as the Knicks’ leading candidate at power forward. It is seemingly the lone position battle still remaining. That is a testament to Acy’s defensive fortitude and vibrant playing style that coincides with new coach Derek Fisher’s vision of what he wants out of his starting lineup. It also helps Acy’s cause that Andrea Bargnani’s battling a sore hamstring. “No I didn’t plan on coming here to start,’’ Acy told The Post with a chuckle. “I planned on coming here and playing hard to earn minutes. I guess I impressed enough with my defense to earn a spot. I don’t know what coach got going if I’m starting or coming off the bench or not playing, but I’ll be happy.’’ New York Post
