Will Quincy Acei stay at Maccabi Tel Aviv? The Israeli champion continues to negotiate with the American forward, but no agreement has been reached and now it turns out that the Yellows are not the only ones who desire him for next season. Italian journalist Matteo Andreiani claims that Barcelona's new coach Ronas Jasikevicius, who is looking for another inside player, has already contacted Acey's representatives about a possible joining of the Catalans.
"My brother deserves a contract of a few years from Maccabi Tel Aviv," tweeted Othello Hunter a few days ago, "now the next one will make it happen." In an interview with Walla! Sports last month Hunter said: "I know some players are left and some still don't know, but I'll put it here on the table: we need Quincy Ace to stay, it's a very important thing for the team. What he brings to the pitch, athleticism, defense, hunger - it's "What we need is what made the team great. He's an important part of this team, just as Jake Cohen was an important part, but he signed with another team. I wanted everyone to stay, I hope they can keep Quincy."

Barcelona had already signed Nick Clathis and Pierre Oriola earlier this summer, extending the contracts of Brandon Davis and Kyle Kuric in hopes of once again threatening the title after their disappointing season.
Icy (29, 2.01m), who missed the decisive stages of the Premier League due to injury, averaged 4.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in the Euroleague this season. In the league he recorded 10.9 points and 6 rebounds per game.
