Quincy Acy has never been one to turn down a challenge.
If there is a big body to deal with on the basketball court, Acy is there to move him. If there is an opponent gobbling up rebounds at an embarrassing rate, Acy goes in and evens up the battle.
“I’ve always embraced the role of doing the dirty work,” Acy said following the first of three workouts at Del Sol High School in Paradise, Nevada as the Raptors gear up for the Las Vegas Summer League tournament which begins Friday.
So when Dwane Casey came with a new, but different kind of challenge there was a never a question of ducking it or trying to change anyone’s mind despite the fact he is being asked to move, even temporarily, to a position he has never played in his life.
