Forward Mike Scott — Unrestricted

If the Sixers want to hold onto the aforementioned Johnson, they likely won’t be able to keep Mike Scott. Johnson and Scott play the same position, and the Sixers may not be able to keep both.

After being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers, across the country to Philadelphia, Scott saw an uptick in minutes and production. With the Clippers, Scott was receiving just 14 minutes per game. After the trade, that number grew to 24 minutes per game.

Last season with the Sixers, Scott averaged 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per contest. If you want to talk about a “glue” guy, that’s Scott. His box scores won’t light up the night, but he does a lot of the little things you like to see out of a reserve forward. Scott is one of those big men who come in and hustle. Rebounds, loose balls, help defense — that’s Scott in a nutshell.

He has also been able to do what many good players do these days — adapt. To start his career, Scott was shooting the three ball in the low 30-percentile. Fast forward to his time with the Sixers last year, and that number grew to 41 percent. That shows you a lot about a player in today’s NBA. You have to adapt, or you’ll be phased out.
