Mike Scott is headed back to the NBA D-League according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore.
The Hawks have assigned Mike Scott to the D-League. Will play for Long Island Nets tomorrow.— Chris Vivlamore (@CVivlamoreAJC) January 1, 2017
Scott’s season was derailed early thanks to an issue with his knee that popped up early in training camp. He underwent a non-surgical procedure in the knee and missed the first quarter of the season. He has had a difficult time finding any rhythm or consistent playing time since his return and hasn’t played particularly well when given an opportunity.
Per Vivlamore, Scott is headed to the Long Island Nets which is where Taurean Prince was assigned earlier this week. Prince made his D-League debut on Friday and the Hawks have made no announcement in regards to his status so he and Scott could both be available for the Nets in Monday’s 1:30 p.m. matchup against Delaware.
Scott has appeared in just seven games so far this season and is averaging 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in just under 12 minutes of action per game.
