The Atlanta Hawks announced the signing of second round draft pick Mike Scott to a two-year deal that does include some guaranteed money. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry indicated via text message to Michael Cunningham that Scott will be a part of the team's 2012-13 roster.

"Mike will be on the team this year," Ferry wrote in a text message.

Scott figures to be one of the players that could benefit from the Hawks new efforts in player development. Its unclear at this time how much he could figure into the team's on court plans this season and could be a candidate for some seasoning in the D-League.

Today was the deadline for teams to extend tenders to second-round draft picks.

Here is the team's official release on the signing:

The Atlanta Hawks have signed rookie forward Mike Scott to a contract, according to President of Basketball Operations/GM Danny Ferry. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
