2019 Fantasy Outlook
Scott was traded from the Clippers to the 76ers as part of the Tobias Harris deal. He averaged 5.8 points and 3.5 rebounds on the season, though his production was much better in Philadelphia that with Los Angeles, averaging 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds with the 76ers. His final season averages were almost identical to his 2017-18 numbers, including playing time. Though he played 17.7 minutes per game on the season, his role increased with Philly, where Scott saw the floor 24.0 minutes a night. He averaged 11.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.6 threes per 36 minutes, which bodes well if he takes on a bigger role in 2019-20. Scott looks like the most obvious reserve option at power forward, even with James Ennis and Jonah Bolden back in the fold and Kyle O'Quinn added to the frontcourt. Scott can stretch the floor as a big man, and his long-range shooting will be valuable to the second unit. An injury to the aging Horford or missed time from Joel Embiid would be a big boost to Scott's fantasy stock. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Scott spent five seasons with Virginia as a low-post scorer. In his first two years under coach Dave Leitao, the 6-foot-8 forward started 40 games. He averaged 5.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 18.1 minutes as a freshman. He led the Cavaliers with 7.4 rebounds to go with 10.3 points as a sophomore. Tony Bennett took the coaching reins prior to Scott's junior season and his numbers kept rising -- the forward provided 12.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in his third year with UVA. Scott seemed ready to break out in the 2010-11 season and averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds through 10 games, but he injured his ankle and was lost for the season. He returned as a redshirt senior in 2011-12 and was named to the All-ACC First Team after providing 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest. He had nine double-doubles, including 35 points and 11 rebounds in the regular-season finale in a win over Maryland. Virginia returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in six seasons and Scott had 15 points and six rebounds in a first-round loss to Florida. Scott closed his career as the third-leading rebounder in school history. He was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 43rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Scott began the 2018-19 campaign in Los Angeles and played 52 games with the Clippers. In his sixth game of the season, Scott broke out out with 11 points, including three 3-pointers. On Nov. 19, he scored 18 points, all from deep, and grabbed seven rebounds. He nearly double-doubled Dec. 11 with nine points and 10 boards. When the calendar turned to February, Scott dropped a total of six triples over a three-game span. He was subsequently traded from Los Angeles to Philadelphia as part of a six-player deal. Beginning Feb. 23, the forward recorded four performances of at least 11 points in a five-game span. That stretch included a 22-point effort Mar. 2 in a 120-117 defeat to Golden State. Scott matched his season-high of 22 points Apr. 4 while knocking down six treys for the third time. With the Clippers, he averaged 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per contest. He upped those numbers to 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in 27 contests with the 76ers. During the playoffs, Scott averaged 5.6 points and 3.4 rebounds over 10 appearances.

2017

A newcomer to the District, Scott matched his career high with 18.5 minutes per game in his first season in Washington. It would end up being his only year with the Wizards after Scott signed with the Clippers as a free agent in July. He made one start for Washington, though he saw 20-plus minutes worth of action on 29 separate occasions. Scott's 76 games played were his most since the 2013-14 campaign. Scott has always been a versatile, well-rounded offensive contributor, and his season averages -- 8.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists -- reflected that. Scott also greatly improved his shooting efficiency this past season. His 52.7 percent clip from the field was a career high, as was his 40.5 percent clip from downtown. To give you an idea of the improvements he made, Scott's previous high-water mark in terms of field-goal percentage was 47.9 percent way back in the aforementioned 2013-14 campaign with Atlanta. Scott's outside prowess led to a 24-point effort against New Orleans on Dec. 19. The University of Virginia product finished the year particularly strong. Scott notched double-digit points in six of Washington's final seven regular-season contests.

2016

Scott appeared in 18 games off the bench for the Hawks in 2016-17, averaging 2.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists per contest. He shot 28.8-percent from the floor in 10.8 minutes played per tilt. Scott scored a season-high 11 points on Jan. 27 against the Wizards. He grabbed a season-high four rebounds on four different occasions. Scott's best calendar month was December, when he averaged 3.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. Scott registered three assists in three separate contests that month. He also collected a block as well as a steal in two contests during the regular season. He played a season-high 21 minutes against the Bulls on Jan. 20.

2015

It took a couple seasons, but Scott has found his niche as an effective bench piece for the Hawks. Scott played 75 games in 2015-16, marking the second time in the past three years that he's reached that number. Best known for his outside shooting prowess, Scott connected on a career-best 39.2 percent of his threes. He also shot better than 79 percent (79.4) from the free-throw line for a second straight season. Scott was exceedingly reliable with the ball in his hands, averaging a stingy 0.6 turnovers per game. The Virginia product finished up his season with a particularly strong playoff run for the Hawks. He saw action in all 10 of Atlanta's postseason contests. After posting 14 points in a one-point Game 1 win over Boston on Apr. 16, Scott added a 17-point effort 10 days later in Game 5 of the series, another victory. All told, Scott drained eight triples in the postseason.

2014

Scott again served mostly in a valuable bench role for Atlanta in 2014-15, averaging 7.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 16.5 minutes per night across 68 contests. He was used as a three-point specialist, as Scott took more shots from downtown while improving his accuracy to 34.4 percent -- a rise of more than three percentage points from the year before. He started out hot, scoring 20 points in 20 minutes Oct. 29 against Toronto -- one of three times that Scott hit exactly 20 points during this campaign. Scott tied his career high in steals with three against the Knicks on Apr. 13. The Hawks went two series deep into the playoffs this time, and Scott saved his finest rebounding effort of the year for the Eastern Conference Semifinals, pulling down nine boards in a close loss to Clevaland on May 24.

2013

Scott saw a major increase in usage off the Hawks' bench in 2013-14, playing 80 games while nearly doubling his minutes per game average to 18.5. Accordingly, he increased his scoring a full five ticks to 9.6 points per game, and his rebounding average rose to 3.6 per contest. After attempting only one three-pointer in his rookie season, Scott developed a far more useful perimeter game, shooting 31.0 percent from downtown over 200 regular season three-point attempts. Those three-pointer numbers include a 6-for-7 effort in his biggest game of the year, a career-best 30-point effort (with eight rebounds to boot) against the Knicks on Feb. 22. He tallied 20-plus points on five occasions, including dropping 26 points on 12-of-13 shooting against Cleveland on Apr. 4. Scott tallied a double-double on Nov. 19 against Miami, pulling down 10 rebounds to go with 15 points. He also set a new personal best with three steals in a 20-point game against Phoenix on Mar. 2. After playing a minimal role in the postseason the year before, Scott was relied upon much more heavily this time around, averaging 9.4 points over just under 21 minutes of court time -- including a 17-point performance in Game 5 against Indianapolis on Apr. 28.

2012

Scott was selected 43rd overall by the Hawks out of the University of Virginia in the 2012 NBA Draft, and displayed his scoring and rebounding ability during his rookie year. In 9.4 minutes per game over 40 contests for Atlanta, Scott averaged 4.6 points and 2.8 rebounds -- that's 17.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per 36 minutes. Scott received more opportunities toward the end of the year, and he rewarded his coach with some impressive stat lines -- particularly Apr. 17 against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, when he set personal bests with 23 points and 14 rebounds. That was his second double-double of the year; the first one came the day before, when he tallied 12 points and 12 rebounds against Toronto. Scott also played in seven games for the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League. With the Jam, Scott excelled with 18.1 points and 8.3 rebounds per D-League contest. Scott also appeared in four of six NBA Playoff games for the Hawks. In the Game 2 loss to Indiana, the rookie delivered four points, three rebounds and an assist.

2012
Scott matched a career high of 18.5 minutes per game in his first season with Washington, allowing him to average three-year bests of 8.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 76 games. Most notably, Scott provided a floor-stretching presence in the frontcourt, as the 6-foot-8 big man hit just under a three-pointer per game at an impressive 40.5 percent clip. His 66 total three-pointers also matched a career high and that's earned him a look with the Clippers after the Wizards opted to let him leave during free agency. Scott should slot in as a deep reserve at power forward and he'll likely struggle to see significant minutes behind the likes of Tobias Harris, Luc Mbah a Moute and Montrezl Harrell. That said, if injuries strike the roster, Scott could become a deep ball specialist in deeper leagues.
Scott entered last season with his status with the Hawks on shaky ground due to a felony drug charge, and despite that case still being outstanding, it didn't deter the power forward from turning in a productive year off the bench. Though he saw his court time decline for a third consecutive campaign, Scott developed into a more efficient scorer, highlighted by a 39.2 percent success rate from downtown. Since he's not much of an asset on the defensive end, Scott’s value going forward will hinge on his ability to prove that his improved accuracy from three-point range wasn't a fluke. Unfortunately, even if he's able to come close to replicating his efforts in that department, Scott doesn't offer enough scoring or rebounding in his limited minutes to make much of an impact in the DFS or season-long fantasy realm. He's made just seven starts in 263 career games, and at 28 years old, it doesn't seem likely that Scott will be groomed for a top-unit role unless Paul Millsap succumbs to an injury.
In his third season, Scott tallied 7.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 0.4 steals in 17 minutes per game through 68 games. He shot 44 percent from the field, 34 percent from downtown, and 79 percent from the free-throw line. Despite Mike Muscala earning the nod over Scott during the final few games of the playoffs, it was Scott's best season of his career. Unfortunately, Scott was arrested on felony drug charges this summer and faces up to 25 years in prison. Given Muscala's late push past Scott in the postseason playing rotation and Scott's potential prison sentence, it's hard to justify drafting Scott in fantasy this season.
Pressed into service when Atlanta's frontcourt was decimated by injury, second-year pro Mike Scott became one of the Hawks more reliable options off the bench, appearing in 80 of 82 games and averaging 9.6 points in 19 minutes per game. A newfound three-point shot was a big factor in his success. Scott attempted just one three-pointer as a rookie and did not connect. In his second year, he attempted 2.5 three-pointers per game and hit them at a 31-percent clip. Scott was rewarded after the season with a three-year, $10 million contract to remain with the Hawks, but he'll be hard-pressed to replicate last season's success. The return of Al Horford and the addition of rookie Adreian Payne should make the Hawks frontcourt much deeper this year, which could push Scott down to third on the power forward depth chart.
Praised by Al Horford for being the team's "most improved player" in the offseason, Scott could play his way into more minutes if he continues at the current pace. He made nearly half his shots from the floor and shot a decent percentage from the charity stripe in his debut season, so the former Virginia product should see more minutes.
The Hawks have said they view Scott as a power forward, so he's likely to see only limited playing time if he does make the roster.
