Mike Scott Re-Signs With Atlanta

Jack Moore —  August 1, 2014

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, power forward Mike Scott will remain an Atlanta Hawk.

It was ambiguous whether Scott would return to the NBA after receiving interest from CSKA-Moscow, a Russian team who offered him a “lucrative” contract.

Scott’s new contract is worth $10 million over the next three years. A large improvement over his last contract that paid him $1.26 million over two years ($473,604 in the first year and $788,872 in the second year).

Scott had a strong second season with the Hawks, averaging 9.6 points along with grabbing 3.6 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per contest. He played an impressive 80 games, staying healthy through out and finding his niche as a promising young back-up who can provide a spark off the bench as a scorer.

It will be interesting where Scott will fit in with the 2014-15 Hawks rotation since they added rookie Adreian Payne to the mix and will likely look for minutes for him.

Now that all of Atlanta’s restricted free agents are locked up, they can take their final swing at the remaining free agents and look to fill their final roster spot.

  1. Mike Scott and Shelvin Mack are much better backup power forwards and point guards than Adrien Payne and Dennis Shroeder. Glad to have Scott and Mack back! Wish we wouldn’t have continued wasting our draft picks and using 1st round picks to build up our 3rd string!

    Awesome John Jenkins, Dennis Shroeder and Adrien Payne will make our 3rd string the best in the NBA!!! Looks like we are heading for a Championship!

    When are the Hawks selling and moving to St. Louis? That has been the plan all along right?

    • If Mack and Mike Scott are truly better than DS and Payne…then we have the worst drafting GM in the league.

      The two highest drafted Hawks players in 7 years can’t get past a couple of 2nd rounders on the depth chart? That’s very very bad.

      M Scott and S Mach resigning does nothing to move the needle. We’re no better or worse for having them here. But I am indeed approaching my limit on mediocre players being accumulated here.

  2. With Greg Monroe, Hawks have always not done well with him. He puts up numbers. If he doesn’t want to be in Detroit, id love to see us go hard after him. He’s an inside scorer which we lack and he’s played in a Princeton offense at Georgetown.
