The Brooklyn Nets have signed Quincy Acy to a second 10-day contract. Acy (6’7”, 240), who was originally signed by the Nets on January 10, has appeared in four games for Brooklyn, averaging 6.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 7.5 minutes per contest.
Okaro White was the D-League player the Heat signed to a 10-day contract this week, but he’s not the only intriguing NBA prospect on the Sioux Falls Skyforce roster. “Briante Weber and Keith Benson. Hands down, they are NBA players,” White said. “It’s just funny how it works here. Even last year with the team they had with the kind of players they had, no one got a call up but Briante. But hands down. Seeing it in practice and seeing it in games, hands down Briante is an NBA player and Keith Benson. I think it’s only a matter of time.”
Casey was an assistant coach during the end of Stackhouse’s time as a player in Dallas and said he didn’t see a future in coaching coming down the line for the former star. “Not really. I didn’t know. I wouldn’t think at that time of Jerry being a coach, but he was always an intelligent player, student of the game,” Casey told Postmedia earlier this week.
