Wizards Sign Mike Scott

July 9, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed free agent forward Mike Scott. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mike’s toughness and ability to stretch the floor make him a good addition to our frontcourt reserves,” Grunfeld said. “His skillset fits in well with our offensive system and his tenacity fits in well with our overall team dynamic.

Scott played four-and-a-half seasons with the Atlanta Hawks after being drafted by the team with the 43 rd pick (second round) of the 2012 NBA Draft.   During a three-year stretch (2013-14 to 2015-16, 223 games), Scott averaged 7.8 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting .346 from three-point range as a key contributor off the Hawks’ bench.  He averaged a career-high 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 80 games for the Hawks during the 2013-14 season and shot a career-high .392 from three-point range over 75 games during the 2015-16 season.  

The 6-8, 237-pound forward has appeared in 281 total games, averaging 7.1 points and 3.0 rebounds, over his NBA career.  He has also appeared in 32 career playoff games, averaging 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds. 

A native of Chesapeake, VA, Scott was named to the All-ACC First Team as a senior at the University of Virginia after averaging 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds. He finished third in Cavaliers history in rebounds and double-doubles and 16 th overall in points.
