So with the signing of Blalock, what does this mean for Alex Acker? Acker in my opinion had a better showing in the Vegas summer league. Acker was one of the Vegas league leaders averaging 18.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals a game. His best game was against the Suns when he scored 29 points with 6 rebounds. When the Pistons sent Acker down to the D league mid season he flourished, averaging 17.9 point and 4.8 rebounds in 35 minutes. Those are some pretty good numbers for Acker who already has a year in the league behind him.
I don’t know what will become of Acker but I hope we just don’t let him go. Maybe the Pistons want to develop Blalock who is a true point guard, rather than Acker who seems to be more comfortable playing the 2 position. I would like to see Acker get a shot, he knows that his chances are slim and he’s playing like he has nothing to lose. He is giving it everything he has every minute he’s out there and that is the kind of player that fits well with the Pistons organization.
One thing that doesn’t look good for Acker is that the Pistons gave Flip Murray #6, the same number worn by Acker last season.
heres what makes sense to me. blalock and samb to europe or d league. rotate the rest of the guards. afterall they have all shown their strength and our starting guys need rest. i think our backups are now more than capable!
He better not be out, he obviously has some potential.
Ouch that is HARSH giving someone else his number.
why would they give murray, acker’s #?
Well, here in Europe today i heard that Acker is high on the wish list of the Euroleague giants, Maccabi Tel Aviv. Few hours later this shows up.
hold it acker an resrited free angent he cant sing with any right give blalock a change this season if he dose well then ackers gone but i like both of the player and i wish the best for acker if hes not sing in the next year or 2
Joe has been making some poor decisions lately, starting with the trade of Darko.
anonymous darko sucks!!!!!! flip gave him a change when the season stated the first 20 game he game out on the floor in the 2nd when it stated and some of the 3rd and if we were winning hed go out the last 5 mins we gave him a change he didnt take what we were give him the he bad comment to the media so darko suck he a draft bust like sam bowe and he was pick over mj
amber u well dont get it do u acker may change hes number or murray may change hes number just because the media show number 6 dose not really mean he going to be # 6 and put more info on ur site and pics if u want to stand a change with nats
Yeah well at least hes a restricted free agent : )
this is such a non-story.
Acker is a good player with potential but you have to look beyond his high scoring numbers in summer league.
He had the worst FG% of any player who got significant shots. He was cited as looking less interested in getting the team involved and shot-happy.
Let him go to Europe and earn a bit more money than he’ll make here. If he develops we can try to resign him if we no longer have his rights.
Either way it isn’t going to be a disaster if we lose him.
is that aloud? are u aloud to take someones jersey number be4 they left the team??
