Alex Acker’s European vacation is going well

From the Free Press:

The Pistons haven't forgotten about guard Alex Acker, whom the team selected with the last pick in the 2005 NBA draft.

Acker is spending the year in Greece playing for Olympiacos of the Euroleague. Acker is the Euroleague's fourth-leading scorer (17.8 points) and rebounder (9.0 rebounds).

"He's playing pretty good," Saunders said.

"It's a great experience for him playing in a very competitive situation and he has the ability to score. We keep tabs on him, try to get some tapes, watch him whenever NBA TV has his team on."

For those keeping track at home, here's Acker's Euroleague.net profile page, where he stands on the Euroleague scoring board and a nice highlight reel from YouTube.
