Not too many people are happier than Quincy Acy right now.
After signing on with the Brooklyn Nets late last season, journeyman forward Quincy Acy’s contract of roughly $1.7 million went from un-guaranteed to fully guaranteed yesterday – the same day he tied the knot with his Baylor sweetheart.
Acy, who succeeded two 10-day contracts and was picked up by Brooklyn full-time in January, agreed to the veteran minimum with Brooklyn and ostensibly confirmed his guaranteed money by retweeting this tweet from his honeymoon in Dallas, Texas:
Acy’s wife Jessica’s tweet went viral about a month ago, posting photos of the two with the caption: “Started in the friend zone… Now we’re getting married in 30 days.”
At the age of 26, Acy is a hustle player whose improved three-point shot could earn him a much larger sum of money somewhere else once he becomes a free agent; but for now, he might as well enjoy his time in Brooklyn.
The couple was congratulated on Instagram by Knicks players, including Lance Thomas and Kyle O’Quinn.
