Alex Acker signs a deal to play in Greece.

by | Jul 31, 2006 | 12 comments

Pistons guard Alex Acker has agreed to a one-year contract to play in Greece next season. He will replace another former NBA player, Tyus Edney, on the Olympiakos team. Acker will be paid one million Euros (about $1.27 million U.S.). He would have made $664,000 with the Pistons and again spent the bulk of the season in the developmental league. The Pistons still retain rights to Acker and could bring him back for the 2007-08 season. Via The Detoit News

This is really the best thing for Acker. He obviously wasn’t going to get any time with the Pistons next season especially with the signing of Will Blalock. I am sure he will start in Greece and get the playing time and experience he needs if he’s ever going to crack an NBA roster. It’s a win-win situation. The Pistons retain his rights for the 2007 season and Acker gets playing time and a whole bunch of cash.

    Ya I agree, this is the best thing for him right now. Hopfully next season he will be ready and either we will pick him up, or trade him to another team where he will finally get some minutes on an NBA team.

    Yeah its the best thing for him. I think he will be a productive guard in the NBA some day. I would like to think it is in detroit but Blalock might be the keeper.

    First of all you are the one who wrote “who cares.”

    Second, I have been a Pistons season ticket holder since 1992. I endured the good and the bad so don’t start calling people out if you don’t know what or who you are talking to.
    Were you even born in 1992?

    3pistonsfan2,

    Acker did not outplay Blaylock significantly. Keep in mind that Acker was playing shooting guards and hoisting up shots whenever he could. He scored around 20 points per game, but also shot the worst FG% on the team (of players who got minutes.)

    Blaylock is better at managing a game and is a decent defender. You can’t judge a player’s performence off of a box score alone.

    This is the right move for both parties.

    I was a fan before 92, if you read it you would see I said I have been a season tickets holder since then. As for the Bad Boys years yes I have been a fan since the Pistons played at the dome. I was born and raised in Detroit, and when I came back to live here after college in 92 I got season tickets.

    What doe’s shemale porn have to do with anyting. Or the Tigers for that matter and how old are you???
