The Atlanta Hawks have recalled rookie forward Mike Scott from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League on Tuesday, one day after recording a double-double. Scott put up 21 points and 10 rebounds in the Jam's win over the Reno Bighorns, which was his fourth game with the team since being sent down by the Hawks last week. Scott will join the team in Orlando for their game against the Magic on Wednesday night.
Scott and John Jenkins were sent down at the same time from the Hawks, but Jenkins was recalled after just two games on Dec. 5. Scott has appeared in five games with the Hawks this season, and is averaging 0.4 points and 0.8 rebounds per game in just over three minutes of action. He played his college ball at the University of Virginia, and was drafted in the second round of the NBA Draft by the Hawks.
