The Atlanta Hawks are sending forward Mike Scott on another D-League assignment according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore. Per Vivlamore, Scott will join the Long Island Nets.

Scott continues to work his way back into shape after missing the first part of the season due to soreness in his left knee. Scott underwent a non-surgical procedure on the knee at the end of training camp and missed the first 18 games of the regular season.

Scott made his first D-League appearance since his rookie season last week when he played in two games with the Delaware 87ers where he averaged 8.5 points and 3.0 rebounds.

Long Island will play again at home on Wednesday in an afternoon game against Maine. They are scheduled to travel to Fort Wayne on Friday to take on the Mad Ants.

Atlanta has been active in using the D-League as a tool to get players on the court. Rookie DeAndre Bembry just completed his second assignment earlier this week.
