Rival teams think restricted free agent Mike Scott can be theirs with a strong offer sheet.
The Hawks are reportedly trying to save cap space, so teams believe that Scott can be theirs if they give him a big enough contract that Atlanta won't want to match. Scott averaged 9.6 points, 0.8 three-pointers, and 3.6 boards last season in 18.5 minutes per game, so the 25-year-old's fantasy upside is a bit limited unless he lands on a team who is willing to give him a lot more run.

Mike Scott said that his priority this summer will be improving his perimeter game, dribbling, and ability to defend guards.

The Hawks' switching defense requires Scott to keep up with smaller and quicker players on a regular basis, and his 'stretch PF' role means that "you have to be able to handle the ball ... I’m not totally comfortable with it yet." Scott hopes to return with the Hawks next season and they're in a position to retain him as a restricted free agent.
May 11 - 3:50 PM

Mike Scott hit 5-of-6 three pointers in the second quarter and finished with 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting as the Hawks took Game 5 in Indiana on Monday.

There were others that arguably contributed more for the Hawks, but it was Scott's flurry that keyed a 41-19 second quarter for Atlanta that the Pacers could never recover from. Shelvin Mack scored 20 points with five assists off the bench, Kyle Korver went 5-of-10 from deep for 16 points, and Paul Millsap went for 18 and eight with four blocks. The Hawks head to Indy up 3-2 with a chance to take down the No. 1 seed on Thursday.
Apr 28 - 10:45 PM

Mike Scott hit 8-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's meaningless win over the Bucks.

Scott could have some playoff value for the Hawks, but will come off the bench with everyone healthy. DeMarre Carroll scored 13, Jeff Teague had 11, Cartier Martin had 14, Mike Muscala had 15 and Shelvin Mack had 11 points, as the Hawks gave the bench guys some run tonight.
Apr 16 - 11:18 PM

Mike Scott hit just 8-of-23 shots for 20 points, six rebounds and one three in Monday's loss.

Scott is always a good bet to touch the ball a lot when the Hawks trot out a depleted lineup. Give him a look, but don't expect much in the way of versatility or efficiency if Wednesday's lineup looks a lot like tonight.
Apr 14 - 10:50 PM

Mike Scott will start against the Bobcats on Monday.

Paul Millsap (rest) isn't going to play which opens up a ton of playing time for Scott. The Hawks have used him next to Millsap on numerous occasions, so he should be a focal point for their offense. In fact, when Millsap has been off the floor in the past month, Scott has a usage rate of 30.7 percent. He's a nice plug-and-play tonight.
Apr 14 - 2:41 PM

Mike Scott caught fire against the Cavaliers on Friday, making 12-of-13 from the field for 26 points with two boards and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He did most of his damage around the basket and still hit all five of his shots outside of the paint. Scott isn't going to see enough minutes while Paul Millsap is healthy, so fantasy owners shouldn't put too much stock into this line.
Apr 4 - 11:35 PM

Mike Scott moved back to the bench on Thursday vs. the Blazers with three boards, one assist and no points in 13 minutes.

When Paul Millsap plays and Scott is coming off the bench, Scott hasn't had the best of luck. The Hawks did slide guys around to play Scott next to Millsap earlier in the year, but Mike Mascala has worked his way into the rotation. Scott can be left alone for now.
Mar 27 - 9:48 PM

Mike Scott will return to the Hawks' bench on Thursday, as Shelvin Mack shifts back into the SG spot with DeMarre Carroll at SF.

Scott had 15 points and seven rebounds in a start on Wednesday, but the Hawks got blown out and coach Mike Budenholzer is reverting to a more traditional lineup with Kyle Korver (back) still on the sidelines. Mack hasn't played well in recent starts and neither he nor Mack are particularly safe options with their roles in flux.
Mar 27 - 6:50 PM

Mike Scott started at small forward and hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points and seven rebounds in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Wolves.

The Hawks weren't getting much from Shelvin Mack at shooting guard, so they went with Scott tonight. If Kyle Korver ever returns from his back injury, Scott will take a hit, but if you want to grab him just in case, he's not a bad player to stash if you have someone you want to cut.
Mar 27 - 12:50 AM

Mike Scott will start at SF for the Hawks on Wednesday, sending Shelvin Mack to the bench.

Kyle Korver (back) is out again and coach Mike Budenholzer is rolling out a bigger lineup vs. the Wolves, as Atlanta continues to cling to the East's final playoff spot. Scott has fared well as a starter with Paul Millsap out in the past, and it will be interesting to see how the two co-exist in the starting five.
Mar 26 - 12:59 PM

Mike Scott scored just seven points with three rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday.

This has typically happened to Scott when Paul Millsap is at full strength and even the Hawks' favorable playoff schedule can't help him at this rate. He's just a speculative deep league player until further notice.
Mar 11 - 1:33 AM

Mike Scott came off the bench for 10 points, one rebound and a 3-pointer in just 15 minutes on Saturday.

Pero Antic and Paul Millsap are back for the Hawks, meaning Scott and Elton Brand will struggle for minutes off the bench. If either of the big starters suffer an injury, Scott will quickly become relevant again for the fantasy playoffs. But if Antic and Millsap stay healthy, Scott and Brand will be very shaky fantasy plays the rest of the way.
Mar 9 - 1:27 AM

Mike Scott scored 14 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-14 shots (including a three) with three rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.

The Hawks have a great fantasy playoff schedule but on a per-game basis he'll be a borderline value in 12-14 team leagues barring a major change in production.
Mar 8 - 1:28 AM

Mike Scott hit 2-of-6 shots for four points and three rebounds, and Elton Brand had six points and three rebounds in Wednesday's ugly loss in Portland.

The Hawks hit just 29-of-88 shots (33 percent) and 4-of-27 3-pointers (15 percent) on a night that saw Kyle Korver's 127-game 3-pointers streak end. Yes, Pero Antic was back, but the Hawks were a disaster tonight and Scott and Brand would have struggled with Antic in street clothes. The Hawks have a great weekly playoff schedule and all four players are probably worth rostering in weekly leagues, given the 4-4-4-4 finish during the fantasy playoffs.
