The least advertised member of the Philadelphia 76ers’ deadline bypass trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2019, Scott has made 37 more games – the game coming off the bench in a brand new two, 9 $ 8 million contracts that would keep him in the City of Brotherly Love until the 2021 season
In theory, the idea was followed, because a modern NBA team can’t have enough combined 3 and D forwards that shoot more than 40% beyond the arc. But in practice, my boy, not so much
Despite playing on the most lucrative contract of his career, Scott’s statistical performance plummeted across the board from his 2018-19 high seas mark, with the 31-year-old nearly falling out. Brett Brown’s playoff rotation
Did Scott’s numbers go down due to a drop in playing time, or did his playing time drop due to a lack of production? Either way, six points in 178 minutes of action is hardly the kind of production a team expects from their sixth man, especially when said sixth man is the team’s highest paid bench player.
If Brown had been shortlisted for his eighth season at South Philly, Scott’s bags would almost certainly be packed already, as he is one of the few players on a cash-strapped roster who can be traded for an asset. minimum non-vet, but there’s an $ 8million man who has something else to say about it
I know, crazy, right? After swapping Scott, Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic not 18 months ago, Doc Rivers has returned to his former quarters in Brotherly Love Town, with the unfortunate task of making the most of a team clearly trending in the wrong direction. p>
On the one hand, the Rivers Clippers signed Scott in free agency ahead of the 2018-19 season As a rule of thumb, teams don’t sign free agents that they don’t think fit their plan – Trey notwithstanding Burke – so assuming Rivers doesn’t completely change what he likes to do, it’s fair to, uh, assume that assumption still holds that being said, Scott was only 14 on average 4 minutes of action under Rivers to Los Angeles and was traded mid-season despite contention in the playoffs
Certainly, Rivers and his general manager Lawrence Frank also traded Harris, arguably the team’s best player, for Landry Shamet and his future assets, so maybe the Clippers were really intent on him. tidy up and get ready for an off-season facelift?
With Scott and Harris in place, Rivers has a solid pair of forwards who know his system.And again, Scott’s cap hit is big enough that the Sixers can trade his contract alongside Zhaire Smith for a player like Lou Williams – assuming whoever succeeds Rivers in Los Angeles values a strong draft compensation on a 6ft 1in walking bucket
With five picks in the 2020 NBA Draft, including four in the second round, the Sixers could potentially land a pretty decent player using Scott’s contract as a filler With a slew of bigger, advanced-sized players already filling all five. Starting off, would the Sixers be better off with an extended five coming off their bench? How about a veteran point guard who can shoot a little?
If the Bucks are looking to move coins, George Hill would definitely look great in red, white and blue
When the Philadelphia 76ers announced the signing of Doc Rivers, I thought, like many, that it would be good news for Mike Scott’s future.But between his dwindling production in Los Angeles, the fact that ‘he was literally swapped out of the team and the business flexibility his contract presents, it actually seems much more likely that’ The Threegional Manager ‘won’t be long for the city of Brotherly love after all Much love for #mikescotthive, but you might be looking for a new folk hero under the radar in the not too distant future
