According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, power forward Mike Scott will remain an Atlanta Hawk.
Mike Scott has agreed to a three-year, $10M deal with Atlanta, league source tells Yahoo Sports.

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.
