Dallas Mavericks Waive Quincy Acy
The Dallas Mavericks have been hit hard by the injury bug so far this year which has been cause for some tough decisions. One of those tough calls was the decision today to make room for another point guard by waiving Quincy Acy.
The Dallas Mavericks watched J.J. Barea get helped off the floor and into the locker room on Wednesday night while playing the Boston Celtics. Barea has been a source of energy and scoring for the Mavs this year and the lack of his presence on the court is a bit of a scary thought.
Not helping the situation any, Deron Williams finally returned from his nagging calf issue, only to be removed from the game during the first half after re-aggravating the injury. D-Will may not have exactly rushed back into play, but any setback could keep him off the court for awhile.
Devin Harris is still without a definitive timeline on when he will return to the Mavs lineup.
With all these injuries, the Mavericks were left with point guard options of Seth Curry and Justin Anderson to carry the load. That probably was not going to cut it.
As Mavs fans started to understand that none of the three point guards were going to be back anytime soon, management was already making calls and changing around the roster to make room for another guard.
Sadly, this decision ultimately led to the waiving of former Baylor Bear and hometown kid, Quincy Acy. @ShamsCharania from Yahoo Sports tweeted out the news earlier today.
Quincy Acy really is a stand up guy and Mavs fans are rooting for him to do well at his next destination. In a weird year for the Mavericks and different roster situations, Acy really just found himself in a tough spot all around.
Our very own Isaac Harris had a chance to get to know Acy a little bit better before the season started and has nothing but respect for the man. To read the interview that Isaac had with Quincy Acy, click here.
We here at The Smoking Cuban respect those players that give it their all for the love of the game like Quincy does every chance he can. It was fun having him on the team for the short chance that we did and hope that an opportunity presents itself for Acy down the road.
