Sixers set to kick the tires on former Rutgers star Quincy Douby

Quincy Douby
PHILDELPHIA - SportsNet New York is reporting thet the Sixers have taken a keen interest in former Rutgers star Quincy Douby.

Douby has developed into an overseas star, averaging 31.6 points last season for the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association, including a CBA single-game record 75 points back on Jan. 2.

A former first-round pick in the NBA Draft back in 2006, Douby is expected to work out for the Sixers later this month. However, the 29-year-old, 6-foot-3 shooting guard also has visits set up with the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

On the surface the Sixers would look like the least desirous option in a three-horse race but they could offer Douby the opportunity to garner the most playing time.

Douby was originally selected by the Sacramento Kings with the 19th overall pick in the 2006 draft and he averaged 4.1 points, 1.1 rebounds over a four-year career with the Kings and Toronto Raptors. He has played overseas since being released by the Raptors on Nov. 12, 2009.
