Alex Maurice Acker (born January 21, 1983) is an American professional basketball player who last played for Pallacanestro Cantù of the Lega Basket Serie A (LBA). He played college basketball for Pepperdine University.
Acker attended Pepperdine University and was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the last pick in the second round (60th overall) of the 2005 NBA draft. He was assigned to the NBA Development League's Fayetteville Patriots on February 27, 2006.
From 2006 to 2008, Acker played for Olympiacos (2006-07) for whom he averaged 14.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists and for AXA FC Barcelona, averaging 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 30 games.
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.
