Alex Maurice Acker (born January 21, 1983 in Compton, California) is an American professional basketball player, who recently signed with Olimpia Milano of Italy.[1]

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.[2]

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 FC Barcelona, averaging 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 30 games.[3]

On September 29, 2008 it was announced that Acker had signed a deal with his former team, the Detroit Pistons.[3]

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.[4] This trade was completed primarily for the Pistons to clear salary cap space and to open a roster spot for trade flexibility.[5]

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.
