Mike Scott Drafted 43rd By Atlanta Hawks

Mike Scott was drafted in the 2nd round by the Atlanta Hawks. Now the question become whether or not he can make the team.

We've been following Mike Scott's NBA draft hopes over the past few weeks. (Video here, updates here and here.) Scott wasn't going to get drafted early, because he's too old and isn't likely to improve much. That said, Scott has an NBA ready body, and good skills that can play now. He's not the type of draft pick for a bad team to build around, but he could potentially be a solid backup for a contender.

As more teams have seen Scott, he's moved up most draft boards. We've been wondering how high he might rise, and where he'll end up.

Well, now our wait is over, and we've got our answer. Mike Scott was drafted 43rd overall by the Atlanta Hawks. This is a good place for Scott. This is a team without a true PF. Josh Smith is their PF but he's really more of a wing player. He is also a trade candidate. Al Horford is the Hawks starting C, but his game is more like a PF than a C. Still, there is little behind Horford, and basically nothing behind Smith.

Mike Scott could absolutely make this team, especially if Josh Smith is traded. He could also see minutes early in his career, as the Hawks need guys who can bang in the paint and grab rebounds. Scott's ability to hit open jumpshots is also valuable on a team with such a strong backcourt.

All in all, a very good position for Scott to be drafted.
