Mike Muscala has been sent down for a D-League stint.
Muscala has trouble getting off the bench when the Hawks have a healthy roster, so he'll get some experience playing in the D-League. He's averaging just 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds over 10 minutes of action this season, and belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Dec 19 - 10:08 AM

Mike Muscala filled in for Mike Scott (illness) on Wednesday with 12 points, seven rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 19 minutes.

It's his second game in double-figure scoring and he continues to play well off the bench. Muscala will lose his playing time once Scott is back, so there's no need to pick him up.

Mike Muscala was sent down to the D-League on Saturday.

He will earn valuable experience with Fort Wayne, but when he does return to Atlanta he will be buried on the depth chart and should be ignored in almost all leagues.
Dec 6 - 11:38 AM

Mike Muscala scored 16 points with seven boards, two assists and one block in 26 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

He played well and entered today's game with averages of 13.4 points, 8.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks in 27.4 minutes over his previous five. Muscala still is buried on the depth chart and is no lock for minutes off the bat.

Mike Muscala is expected to play in Las Vegas Summer League.

He played in summer league last July before kicking off last season in Spain. The Hawks eventually brought him on board for 20 games last year, but he only played 10.8 minutes per game. He will need a fantastic offseason to get in the rotation to start the season.
Jun 9 - 9:42 AM

Minnesota native Mike Muscala played 24 minutes and hit 3-of-8 shots for a career-high eight points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's ugly loss in Minnesota.

Muscala has no fantasy value, but it was nice of the Hawks to get him some run in his hometown tonight.

Hawks sign C Mike Muscala.

The injury-depleted Hawks' frontcourt will get a boost with the signing of the Bucknell alum. Muscala led the ACB league of Spain in rebounding with 8.2 per game this season and should see some minutes with Paul Millsap, Gustavo Ayon, and Pero Antic banged up, but he isn't a player fantasy owners should be rushing to pick up.

Mike Muscala is traveling to the United States to sign with the Hawks.

The Bucknell alum had been playing with Blusens Monbus Obradoiro of the ACB League, but will reportedly be bought out of his one-year contract by the Hawks. Muscala led the ACB with 8.2 rebounds per game and should help provide some much-needed front court depth. We'll update this situation as more news becomes available, but Muscala can be safely left on waivers for the time being.
Feb 25 - 10:21 AM

The Hawks have reportedly inquired about signing their 2013 second-round draft pick Mike Muscala this season.

Muscala is a 6'11" center out of Bucknell who signed with a team in Spain after the draft and remains under contract. He's averaging 14.5 points while leading the ACB with 8.2 rebounds per game, and the Hawks' interest may not amount to much -- there is no offer on the table and Obradoiro has already rejected offers for Muscala from other Spanish-league teams.

Mike Muscala signed to play next season in Spain for Blusens Monbus Obradoiro.

He was the second-round pick of the Hawks and wasn't expected to get a crack at the NBA with the acquisition of Gustavo Ayon. Muscala didn't look too shabby in Las Vegas Summer League, but his athleticism and strength don't jump out as an NBA big just yet. He averaged 18.7 points and 11.1 boards at Bucknell.

The Hawks selected Bucknell C Mike Muscala with the 44th pick in the NBA Draft.

This pick comes from the Shane Larkin trade from the Mavericks. Muscala had a solid season in 2012-13, averaging 18.7 points and 11.1 boards in 31.7 minutes. He'll have a tough time making the team.

Bucknell C Mike Muscala only interviewed with the Spurs, Jazz and Hawks at last week's Combine.

Muscala is gaining some steam as one of the draft's sleepers, and getting a look from the savvy Spurs will only add to that notion. He's a tremendous shooter at 6'11/230, but can't play the stretch four spot because he can't guard anyone. That wasn't a problem in the Patriot League, where Muscala averaged 18.7 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocks as a senior. He's hoping to get a chance at the tail end of the first round.
