The Wizards are reportedly adding Mike Scott to their roster, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Free agent guard Mike Scott is finalizing a minimum deal with the Washington Wizards, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 4, 2017
Scott gives the Wizards a true stretch four who shot an impressive 39.2 percent from deep in 2015-16. Last season, however, he had a major regression, only shooting 4-27 from deep in limited minutes with the team before he was traded to the Suns in February and subsequently released.
If Scott can get anywhere close to his numbers from 2015-16, this could be a coup for the Wizards, as they give Wall a great floor spacer who gives John Wall and Tim Frazier another shooting option off the bench. If not, well, it’s only a minimum deal.
The Scott signing, along with the additions of Jodie Meeks and Tim Frazier, brings the Wizards’ roster to 14, without including Otto Porter or Bojan Bogdanovic. That leaves only one spot on the final roster, excluding the two spots that are only available to players on two-way deals. Unless the team makes an unbalanced trade to clear roster room, or releases one of their other players on minimum deals (Sheldon Mac or Daniel Ochefu), Washington will only be able to bring back one of their two restricted free agents.
