Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist, one turnover and one 3-pointer against Spain during a 92-73 loss on Monday.

The savvy Spanish team neutralized his low-post game and kept a body on him in the perimeter, as well. Scola is much better on the international stage, but his days of making a noteworthy impact in the NBA look to be behind him.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola had 14 points (6-of-9 shooting), 10 rebounds, two 3-pointers and three turnovers for Argentina in Saturday's 111-107 2OT win over Brazil.

Scola isn't expected to have a large on-court role in Brooklyn next season, but he's still got something left in the tank and has been playing well for his national team.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored 12 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against Lithuania on Thursday.

The Lithuanians guarded him quite well in this game. Scola's low-post arsenal has dominated international competition for about a decade, but it didn't work too well with him only making 5-of-11 from the field. He's not expected to have an impact with the Nets next season.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored 23 points to lead Argentina to a 90-82 win over Croatia, giving his team a 2-0 record in Rio.

The 36-year-old forward was impressive, adding nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks, and he even added three treys on five attempts. The veteran signed a one-year deal with the Nets this summer, but he's likely going to have a limited role off the bench in what could be his final season in the NBA.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

The Nets have signed Luis Scola to a one-year deal, according to The Vertical.

It's unclear how much run the 36-year-old will see with the rebuilding Nets, but his fantasy value is limited as he's more important to the team as a veteran presence off the bench.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola did not score in six minutes with one turnover and no other stats on Friday.

He didn't play at all in the second half. Scola's offense was a waste for almost the entire postseason, putting up just a paltry 39.1 true shooting percentage. The 36-year-old forward will be a free agent this summer and he certainly won't have a big market after him.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola started again on Saturday with no points, no rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes.

While he wasn't great on the offensive end, he didn't kill the Raptors on defense. It did help to see Kevin Love miss most of his shots while Scola was on him. He's not really a fantasy option even in the starting lineup.
May 21 - 11:24 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola is starting again on Saturday against the Cavs.

Why? The Game 2 starters had a minus-28.4 net rating while the starters in Game 1 only had a minus-2.0 net rating. Scola should be on a short leash tonight. He'll join Bismack Biyombo, DeMarre Carroll, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan We should still see plenty of Patrick Patterson off the bench.
May 21 - 8:12 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola will start on Thursday with Patrick Patterson moving to the bench.

The Raptors starters were actually OK on Tuesday, but their bench was destroyed. Scola will likely only play minutes in the teens, so he's not a great fantasy option.
May 19 - 8:22 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Pacers.

Patrick Patterson played 26 minutes in the starting lineup and while he wasn't great, he will likely be the starter going forward. Scola isn't a fantasy option.
Apr 26 - 9:39 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola will move to the bench for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Pacers.

Scola has been struggling as a starter through Toronto's first-round series, owning meager averages of 2.0 points and 3.0 boards on 21.4 percent shooting. He wasn't worth using as a starter, and it'll only get worse for Scola fantasy-wise with the demotion to the second unit.
Apr 26 - 5:52 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola missed all five shots from the field and made 1-of-2 from the line for one point with two rebounds on Saturday.

His 14 minutes were about 14 minutes too many. Scola hurt the Raptors a ton today and he shouldn't be cracking double-digit minutes.
Apr 23 - 5:55 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola (rest, knee) will play Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Scola has been rested for the past two games, but he'll get back on the court tonight which will likely result in Jason Thompson returning to the bench. This game could turn into a blowout quickly, so Scola's could find himself taking an early seat on the bench. He's not worth deploying in most settings.
Apr 12 - 6:01 PM
Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola (rest, knee) is probable for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Scola has sat the Raptors last two games to rest his knee for the playoffs, but looks to be available for Tuesday night against Philadelphia. With the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference locked up, Scola will likely see his minutes limited on Tuesday and isn't worth a great option in most fantasy leagues.
