Luis Scola went berserk for the Argentinian National Team on Tuesday, scoring 35 points on 13-of-26 shooting to go with 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover in a win over Canada.
Scola also went 9-of-14 from the charity stripe for good measure, and Kelly Olynyk simply could not contain him. However, he'll likely come off the bench behind Patrick Patterson in Toronto next season, so there's no reason to draft him in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 1 - 5:29 PM

Luis Scola said he doesn't think 2015-16 will be his last season.

"You never know," Scola said. "I don’t think anybody, that is actually retired now, actually thought it was their last year when the last year came, so I don’t know." Scola played 20.5 minutes per game last season and he will likely see less run than that with the Raptors. He's only a target in deep leagues.
Jul 29 - 5:03 PM

The Raptors officially signed Luis Scola to a one-year, $3 million deal on Wednesday.

Scola will compete for the starting power forward position in Toronto with the likes of Tyler Hansbrough and Patrick Patterson, and there's a decent chance he comes out on top in this position battle. However, even if he is able to secure the starting gig, he'll more than likely be locked into a timeshare with the aforementioned players, which really limits his value to deeper leagues.
Jul 15 - 11:35 AM

Free agent power forward Luis Scola has signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Raptors as a free agent.

He's penciled in as the backup power forward behind Patrick Patterson, but let's remember he played with point guard Kyle Lowry a lot in the past, and did well with him in Houston. Maybe he'll challenge PP for the starting job, but the fact he doesn't block shots, nor does much besides scoring and grabbing some boards, means he'll never be a fantasy dynamo. However, the fact he rarely misses games means he should be drafted late in most leagues, especially if he can win the starting job.
Jul 9 - 1:11 AM

Luis Scola tweeted early on Thursday morning "We the north...Here I come," indicating that he is signing with the Raptors.

That leaves the Pacers with a hole at power forward and center, with Roy Hibbert with the Lakers, and no notable power forwards locked into the Pacers' roster. Rookie center Myles Turner has looked exceptional in Summer League and Paul George could find himself playing a ton of power forward this season, in the absence of Scola and David West. Both players should have some nice, cheap fantasy value this season. As for Scola, with Amir Johnson out of the way, it's possible he starts for the Raptors this season at PF, although Patrick Patterson currently holds the job.
Jul 9 - 12:29 AM

The Pacers have not reached out to Luis Scola.

There was some reported mutual interest, but that hasn't been the case for over a month. Scola could wind up on another team even though the Pacers are really thin up front.
Jul 8 - 7:42 PM

The Pacers and Luis Scola are mutually interested in working out a new contract.

"We'll see how it goes," Larry Bird said. Scola would be a solid bench presence for the Pacers, but it's not clear how close the two sides may be in seeing eye-to-eye on the value of a new deal for the 35-year-old big man.
May 25 - 10:17 AM

Luis Scola has stayed in Indianapolis to continue his postseason workouts.

While Scola will be a free agent this summer, the 35-year old stayed in Indianapolis to work out so he could be a step closer to fulfilling Pacers' team president Larry Bird's wishes by re-signing with the Pacers. Scola reportedly has no intentions of retiring and would again serve as a solid bench player for the Pacers after averaging 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds during the 2014-15 season. His fantasy value, however, is limited at this point in his career and he shouldn't be a target in standard league drafts.
May 19 - 9:31 AM

Larry Bird said that he would like to bring back Luis Scola next season.

Scola is a quality reserve in the league, but with season averages of just 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds, he’s nowhere near being a standard league asset.
Apr 17 - 3:42 PM

Luis Scola finished Tuesday's sloppy 99-95 win vs. the Wizards with zero points, assists or blocks in 17 minutes off the bench.

The veteran power forward has had some nice moments since the All-Star break, including a 23-point game on Apr. 5, but tonight was not one of them. He grabbed seven rebounds and stole the ball once but missed both of his field goal attempts, and contributed to the Pacers' bench shooting a horrific 25.8 percent from the field.
Apr 14 - 11:45 PM

Luis Scola racked up teams highs of 23 points and 12 rebounds vs. the Heat on Sunday, making 10-of-15 shots with one assist in a mere 19 minutes of action.

He was the only Pacers big man to take advantage of the Heat's injury problems but tonight's per-minute bonanza is obviously not sustainable. The Pacers have only five games remaining in the regular season and Scola is nothing more than a deep-league rebounding specialist.
Apr 5 - 8:47 PM

Luis Scola drew a start against the Bucks on Thursday with David West (illness) out, finishing with 15 points, nine boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

He has a knack for getting free on cuts and he had a lot of success with that tonight on the weak side of plays. David West (illness) only had an allergic reaction, so he's probably going to be ready to play in the near future. Considering his upside isn't too high and the Pacers are off until Sunday, Scola isn't a great add.
Mar 26 - 10:42 PM

Luis Scola will start in place of David West (illness) against the Bucks on Thursday.

In his previous 15 starts, Scola averaged 8.9 points, 7.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.7 steals, With Rodney Stuckey (calf) also out, there should be more shots to go around, so Scola may have a chance to score in the teens. Give him a look if you're looking for a last-second stream spot.
Mar 26 - 7:31 PM

The Pacers' bench dominated the Magic on Tuesday, aided by Luis Scola's 15 points (6-of-8 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), 10 rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes.

Rodney Stuckey stole the show but Scola was no slouch, recording just his sixth double-double of the season. He's settled into a nice groove with the second unit, but is only worth a glance in 14-team leagues while David West is healthy.
Mar 10 - 9:26 PM

Luis Scola explained that his adjustment to coming off the bench has been easier this season.

Hampered last season by a sore shooting elbow, Scola is now comfortable and healthy. "It took me a little while to get used to (playing off the bench)," he said. "When you have a consistent role you get to know what your team is going to do and they know how you play and you know when you're going to get into the game and how many minutes you play," he added. Scola got some run with the starters early this year when David West (ankle) was out, and it's benefiting him nicely now. In unrelated news, Scola had a red welt on his knee after Sunday's win, but it's not expected to be an issue.
