Career[edit]

On February 16, 2009, Acker was traded by Detroit to the Los Angeles Clippers along with a second round draft pick in 2011 NBA Draft in exchange for a conditional second round draft pick in 2013 NBA Draft.[3] This trade was completed primarily for the Pistons to clear salary cap space and to open a roster spot for trade flexibility.[4]

In May 2009 Acker was featured in an AOL Sports report by NBA Correspondent Elie Seckbach sharing the story of his journey [1].

In August 2009, Acker signed a contract with Olimpia Milano in Italy.[5]

In September 2010 he signed with Le Mans.[6]

In October 2012 he signed a one-year contract with Asseco Prokom Gdynia.[7] In February 2013, he signed a 2-month deal with Boulazac Basket Dordogne.[8] On May 2, 2013 he signed with ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne.[9]

In June 2013, he signed a one-year deal with Limoges CSP.[10] With Limoges he won the 2013–14 LNB Pro A season, and was named MVP of the Finals.[11]
