Hawks send John Jenkins, Mike Scott to D-League

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Hawks have sent rookies John Jenkins and Mike Scott down to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League.

The Atlanta Hawks have sent rookies John Jenkins and Mike Scott down to their D-League affiliate, the Bakersfield Jam, according to a tweet from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore. The length of their assignment to the D-League is undetermined. The two players have received minimal playing time so far this season, so getting them some playing time in Bakersfield will be better for their development than sitting on the bench.

Jenkins is a 6'4 shooting guard in his first season out of Vanderbilt. He's appeared in four games this season, averaging 3.3 minutes per game while putting up 1.5 points and one rebound per game. He was selected in the first round with the 23rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Scott is a 6'8 power forward out of Virginia, and was the Hawks' second-round pick (43rd overall) in the 2012 NBA Draft. He's appeared in five games this season, and is averaging 0.4 points and 0.8 rebounds in 3.2 minutes per game.
