The Kings traded forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw to the New York Knicks on Wednesday for forward-center Jeremy Tyler, guard Wayne Ellington and the rights to the Knicks’ 2016 second-round draft pick.
“We want to thank Quincy and Travis for their contributions to the Kings organization,” Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro said in a statement. “We all wish them great success.”
Acy, 23, acquired from Toronto last season in the trade that brought forward Rudy Gay to the Kings, has averaged 3.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 12.9 minutes in 92 games in two seasons with the Kings and Raptors. Outlaw, 29, an 11-year veteran, averaged 5.1 points in 14.4 minutes in his three seasons with the Kings.
Ellington, 26, who has played for four teams in his five seasons, has averaged 6.4 points. His best season was 2012-13, when he averaged 7.9 points in 78 games with Memphis and Cleveland. He played last season in Dallas, averaging 3.2 points in 45 games. Ellington was acquired by the Knicks in June in a deal that sent Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavericks.
Tyler, 23, has averaged 3.6 points in three NBA seasons with three teams, Golden State, Atlanta and New York.
