The Atlanta Hawks have recalled rookie forward Mike Scott from Developmental League affiliate Bakersfield Jam after an impressive outing Monday night.
Scott posted his first double-double of his pro career as he dropped 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds last night in a 114-109 victory over the Reno Bighorns, snapping a two-game losing streak for Bakersfield. Scott hit 7-of-9 shots in the contest and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the foul-line.
Scott is expected to join the Hawks in Orlando, per AJC beat writer Chris Vivlamore:

Scott and fellow rookie John Jenkins were assigned to Bakersfield earlier this month and made their D-League debut on Dec. 3, against the Santa Cruz Warriors. The Hawks recalled Jenkins just two days later on Dec. 5.
In four games with Bakersfield, Scott averaged 13.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
