Quincy Douby was signed by the Raptors on March 24, 2009 to a 10-day contract. On April 3rd, Douby signed for a second 10 days which was eventually extended to include the 2009-10 season. It appears shooting 44.4% from 3 gets you a second look!

A 6’ 3” 175 lb star shooting guard from Rutgers, Douby was drafted 19th overall in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings after his junior year. Following a rough 2 NBA seasons, he was waived by the Kings on February 18, 2009.

Considered to be the best guard Rutgers has ever produced, Douby was an excellent offensive player. He had a good handle and the ability to create his own shot. With excellent range on his jumper, Douby was a major 3-point threat in college. Despite being undersized, he had a decent defensive game and was able to get more than his share of blocks, steals and rebounds. While definitely a scorer, Douby was also credited with being able to find the open man.

College basketball started well for Douby. While a freshman at Rutgers, students started wearing “I Doubylieve” t-shirts. Douby had moved Rutgers men’s basketball from being a long running joke to the finals of the NIT.

In his junior year at Rutgers, Douby averaged 25.4 ppg while sinking 3-pointers at a rate of 3.5 per game with a 40% success rate. He also filled the stat sheet with 4.3 boards, 3.1 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks. It is little wonder that the Big East’s scoring leader, Quincy Douby was considered the heart and soul of his team.

It’s amazing just how fast things can change when players move from college to the NBA. Initial scouting reports on Douby expressed concern over his size. Really it was more his lack of strength and weight.

Douby wasn’t considered to have true point guard potential. His assist to turnover ratio in college was poor at 1.1:1 in his junior year. At 175 lbs, many shooting guards in the NBA were expected to over-power him with little trouble. To be successful, Douby was going to have to be an effective outside shooter.

In his rookie year, Douby only played in 42 games and for very limited minutes. But far worse for Douby was his 24% shooting from 3-point range.

Year 2 was slightly better. His 3-point shooting improved to 34.4%. He got into 74 games and scored 4.8 points in 11.8 minutes per game. However, with a turnover ratio below 1:1 it wasn’t surprising the Kings brought in Bobby Jackson and Bobby Brown to compete for the backup guard spots.

Unfortunately in year 3, Douby’s 3-point shot deserted him again. After shooting 27% from 3 over 20 games, the Kings decided that they had invested enough time in Douby.

The Raptors pick up of Quincy Douby looked like they were just trying out an available body as the team lacked depth at the guard positions. It wasn’t really something to be taken seriously. But the Raptors were not just wasting time at the end of a lost season. Quincy Douby, the under-sized guard without point guard potential, had quietly (almost unnoticed) stopped turning the ball over so badly.

Douby only played 7 games with the Raptors last season. That’s hardly enough to get a true picture of his abilities. But the 4 of 9 shooting from 3 looked promising and the 12 assists to 7 turnovers apparently got the Raptors management’s attention.

In that short stretch of games, it began to feel like, unexplainably, the Raptors were going to give Douby a shot at 3rd string point guard duties.

In the 2009 NBA Summer League, Douby figured prominently. What was immediately noticeable was that when Roko Ukic ran the team, things didn’t go so smoothly. Then when Quincy Douby was at the point (even just on the floor), the team performed better. By the end of Summer League, it was obvious that Douby had outperformed Ukic.

In Summer League, Douby averaged 18 points, 4 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 1.8 turnovers, shooting 46.9% from the field and 31.3% from 3. Quincy had a nice Summer League stat line but hardly overwhelming. (At least he didn’t have Ukic’s 0.8:1 assist to turnover ratio.)

There have been calls for Quincy Douby to get a real opportunity to play with the Raptors this coming season. These seem to be primarily based on his outstanding college game, the 7 game “try-out” last year with the Raptors, or Douby’s success in Summer League.

However, Quincy Douby has yet to prove he can handle meaningful minutes in a NBA game. Fortunately, since he is still only 24 years old, has a very inexpensive (by NBA standards) contract, and should be happy to have the chance to be a 3rd string guard on an NBA team, the Raptors can afford to see if Douby can continue to develop his game.

There are signs Douby can add to his college skill set, learn to control his turnovers, and become a useful NBA player. But, calls for Douby to play significant minutes for the Raptors this season seem very premature.

Douby reinvented by the Raptors, maybe not yet.

douby will be out of the league after this year. not even worth the NBA minimum. it was laughable to read all of the posts earlier this summer about he was going to be so good for this team. I pray that he will never see the court before the 9th minute of the 4th. This guy is worse than Palacio at his worst.

Douby's biggest asset for us this year will be his ability to drive the lane and draw fouls. Someday he could become a Jason Terry type of player when all is done. He's got some pretty deceptive hops for a small guy also. He's young and needs to continue to develop.

care to explain why?...kings fucked up his development.....no one really knows what his potential is.....and hes only 25.....why not takes a low risk high reward chance.....i think hes got a great change at becoming a solid bench player....and like haplbeedballer said, he can become an eddie house type player, but can also make plays for the team and slash to the basket.....

At best he's a guy that can be used effectively in moderation, I don't ever see him playing meaningful minutes for a legit club. In terms of your very last guy off the bench though, he's not a bad option.

Care to explain why?

Ok I will try. How many 19th overall picks materialize into players that have significant careers. I'd bet less than 50%.

09 J. Teague 08 J. Hickson 07 J. Crittenton 06 Douby 05 H. Warrick
04 Dorell Wright 03 Aleksandar Pavlovic 02 R. Humphrey 01 Zach Randolph 00 Jamaal Magloire 99 Quincy Lewis 98 Pat Garrity 97 Scot Pollard 96 Walter McCarty 95 Randolph Childress 94 Tony Dumas 93 Acie Earl 92 Don MacLean 91 LaBradford Smith 90 Dee Brown 89 Phil Kenny Payne 88 Rod Strickland 87 Ken Norman 86 Billy Thompson 85 Steve Harris 84 Bernard Thompson

He was a prolific scorer in college. It's too easy to name, off the top of my head, college scoring phenoms that have been undersized at the 2 or not good enough of a pg for the NBA. If I must, Reddick was a better college player than Douby and probably just as athletic. He can't defend NBA 2's cause he is weak as heck (think Anthony Parker/Jamario Moon weak and divide by two) and he is only good as a pg if you have him just taking up minutes so your starter and backup don't have to play garbage minutes.

Have you seen his shooting percentages in the pros?

Finally, who cares about our 13th man. No one should ever want to see them play. In today's NBA you run a 9-10 deep lineup and in the playoffs it gets shortened. It's like talking about Jawai last year.

I'd say all 4 really, they're 12-15 on the depth chart anyway you slice it.

ridiculous? did jawai not play last year? yes he did. did he do anything that really impacted on the team's results. no. Will be very much like Douby this year. How ridiculous to even think Douby will be at all valuable this year.

what a ridiculous and baseless response.

I like Douby, he has some handles and has good range. Not a bad guy to have at the end of the bench if you ask me.

Because he's terrible, thats why.

Douby is an asset to a good NBA team if he's 3 inches tallet and 50 lbs heavier.

Sometimes I wonder how much ball some poeters have seen. Live, in the park, on television, live NBa..... all types. You have to have a feel for ball. Sometimes guys just aren't good enough. There are 100 guys in Douby's category that are bigger and stronger, and they will always beat him in the long run.

This is not an attack on him as a man, he seems like a nice chap, but face, it, there's a reason somke guys get paid $$$$ and others end up in Europe.

Douby just isn't good enough to be a starter on a bad team, and not good enough to be second string on a contender.

Life's hard.

4 of 9 doesn't justify a good shooting %.

Hell, Rashard Lewis can do that in one game.

Thank you. Glad someone sees why Douby won't have any impact. It isn't against him. Guys like Jawai, Garth Joseph (lol) ,Douby, POB, Jimmy King... there is always some guy holding down the end of the bench because he has a CHEAP contract.
