Report: Mike Scott, Atlanta Hawks Reach Agreement on Three-Year Deal

Mike Scott is back with the Atlanta Hawks!

He and the team have reached an agreement on a new three-year, $10 million deal, reports Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.

The third year of the deal is a team option notes Vivlamore.

Atlanta extended Scott a qualifying offer the day before the free agency period began on  July 1st, but the third-year forward was hoping for a new, guaranteed deal, like teammate and fellow restricted free agent Shelvin Mack received from the team last week.

There were a report last week that Scott was considering a “lucrative” offer from CSKA-Moscow to play overseas in Russia next season if he didn’t get the deal he desired from the Hawks or another NBA team.

Fortunately, both parties came to a mutual agreement and Scott will spend the next few seasons back in a Hawks uniform.

Scott took to Twitter to express his happiness.

The 26-year-old forward had a breakout season with the Hawks last year, appearing in 80 games, averaging 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds 18.5 minutes per game. He finished with a .479 field goal percentage and stepped up as one the team’s best scoring options off the bench.
