The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that the team has re-signed forward Mike Scott. The terms of the contract were not disclosed per team policy.
"Mike epitomizes what Philadelphia loves - a fierce competitor with tireless work ethic, who's driven by the desire to win," said Elton Brand, Philadelphia 76ers general manager in a statement. "His toughness, grit and passion are palpable, as the city of Philadelphia has come to know. We are thrilled to have Mike back with the 76ers."
Scott was originally acquired by the 76ers in a Feb. 6 trade with the Los Angeles Clippers. With the 76ers, Scott saw his scoring average go from 4.8 to 7.8 points a game, and he connected on .412 of his three-pointers with Philadelphia. In 79 last season with the 76ers and the Clippers, he averaged 5.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 17.7 minutes a game, while shooting .401 from three-point range.
