    FC Barcelona has decided not to exercise its option on Alex Acker.

    His season in Spain has been very disappointing

    Statistics
    37 games, 19 min.
    7.8 points, 0.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.7 steals, 1 turnovers

    Bad numbers for a player who had to be the star

    Sincerely with this so irregular season I do not believe that he has future either in Detroit or in the NBA

    Maybe not. But he'll be on Pistons summer league team with a chance to show something.

    I hope that he takes advantage of his opportunity, because really I believe that he is a good player, but I have seen all his games and he must improve very much.

    Can he improve much at this point? He's no spring chicken.

    Alex Acker ???? are we talking Alex Acker ???????
    you concerned about our 15th man on the bench. lol. face it the guy got no game. lol the 77th pick of the 05 draft still gets mentioned.
    Acker will never play in the association. We will save a bench spot for him, he will sit between fenis dembo and William Bedford.

    Lets all never mention these names again, as they matter zero % : sammy meija, alex acker, will blaylock. If we have to worry about any of these guys at all, or even have to have a conversation about them, than the pistons are in more trouble than i thought.

    meija had some good numbers in D-league. Too bad he hurt his ankle at the wrong time.

    Dang! Why didn't the Pistons keep this guy? Then WE could have been the ones to fail to exercise his option after several disappointing seasons. Only we could have been paying him a few million to do so! Fire Joe D!

    The regular season have 34 games and Acker didn't play the first 4 games due his physical problems.
    In playoffs Barcelona lost in finals and Alex play all the games.

    It's true that he was improving during the season and that his better games coincided with the playoffs, but in general his performance has been unsatisfactory.

    It cost for pistons nothing to let him play in Europ eone more year. But I would't be suprised when he cracks into roster as cheap, insurance player.

    Acker is really bad,the coach give him minutes but he has been relegated to the bech by Roger Grimau,our captain player who play like ben wallace figth,but more veteran and less ofensive and poor quality.

    Acker is very worst because ha has player without regularity and intensity.

    Barça is my favorite team with pistons,Pistons don´t need Alex Acker.

    If this is true, then he'd fit right in with Sheed and Chauncey.
