The Process stalled out and the Sixers have a big summer ahead

The Jazz have signed free agent point guard Mike Scott to a one-year contract, according to Nicola Lupo of Sportando.
Scott spent last season playing in Poland after going undrafted out of the University of Idaho in 2016. The Jazz are already loaded at point guard with Mike Conley, Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay and Nigel Williams-Goss all capable of manning the position, so the team could be signing Scott for the sole purpose of locking him down for their G League affiliate.

Sunday, in an incident that is likely to be reviewed by the league, Mike Scott got into a physical altercation with an Eagles fan outside of Lincoln Financial Field.
In the video link you can view Scott, wearing a Redskins jersey, getting into a scrap with an Eagles fan in the parking lot outside of Lincoln Financial Field. It does not look like he is injured during the mixup, but the incident could result in a fine or suspension by the NBA. Scott is not expected to be much of a fantasy asset this season, but keep him in mind if his role with the Sixers were to expand.

The Sixers have announced the re-signing of Mike Scott.
Scott returns to Philly on a two-year deal worth $9.8 million. Hopefully Scott's Tots get their tuition checks now. The Threegional Manager gives Philly a scoring lift as a stretch four off the bench and is a nice piece that gives their second unit a different dynamic. There could be deep-league value depending on how the rotation shakes out, but it's unlikely to be anything too exciting.

Mike Scott has agreed to return to Philadelphia on a two-year, $9.8 million deal according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Scott proved to be a valuable bench piece for a Sixers team who needed second unit scoring wherever they could find it. He is now set to return on a modest deal that should allow Philadelphia to continue piecing together the rest of their roster. Scott figures to have more real life value for his team than he will fantasy value.

Mike Scott checked in for 20 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 11 points with three triples on 4-of-5 shooting.
Scott is the obvious choice for Philadelphia's backup center spot, and he was a plus-29 in his run tonight. If the Raptors continue to use two traditional bigs it'll be very tough for them to cover Scott at the 3-point line. He might be in line for more minutes on Sunday night.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) returned to the Sixers lineup in Game 3 on Thursday and played 14 minutes, scoring five points.
Scott adds an option to the bench for the Sixers and we're going to really test the depth of both of these squads as we go deeper into what looks like a great series between two good teams. We'll see if Scott's health is a pivotal factor along the way.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) told the media that he will play in Thursday's matchup vs. the Raptors.
Scott said of his ailing right foot, "It feels good. Let's take it for a spin." Continue to monitor his status ahead of game-time as this news didn't come directly from the team. However, his chances of playing seem to be heading in the right direction. If he does end up suiting up, it could lead to less minutes for Jonah Bolden and James Ennis III.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) will be a game-time decision ahead of Thursday's Game 3 vs. the Raptors.
Scott has missed both games thus far and this injury typically takes some time to recover from. Scott is unlikely to play but the game-time decision tag is positive news and does show that there is a chance he will get out there to help the Sixers take the advantage in the series. Continue to monitor his status as we get closer to tip-off.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) is listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors.
The Sixers expected Scott to play a pivotal role off the bench in these playoffs. With him hurt, James Ennis III has stepped up to play about 20 minutes per game while averaging 12 points in the first two games of this series. If Scott sits out Game 3, Ennis III will continue to play big minutes off the bench.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) was able to return to practice on Wednesday, though he remains uncertain for Thursday's Game 3.
Scott has shed his walking boot and it looks as though he'll be able to return this series, even if it's not tomorrow. He'll get additional treatment to see how he feels before making a final decision. Scott's return would give the Sixers a legitimate stretch four and help ease the burden on their other bench players.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 against the Raptors.

Mike Scott, already ruled out for Saturday's Game 1, was spotted in a walking boot thanks to his right heel contusion and plantar fasciitis.
The Sixers don't expect to have Scott available for the immediate future and haven't planned for the second round as though he'll be ready to go. James Ennis and Jonathon Simmons should see additional run, though Brett Brown specifically called out Zhaire Smith as a guy who could play more.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion/plantar fasciitis) has been ruled out for Saturday’s Game 1 vs. the Raptors.
Coach Brett Brown already stated that the Sixers would be proceeding as if Scott would miss the series so this news isn’t a surprise. As long as Joel Embiid (left knee tendonitis) plays, there won’t be very many minutes left over for the bench crew regardless.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said that he wasn't proceeding as if the Sixers will have Mike Scott (right heel bruise/plantar fasciitis) against the Raptors and it would be a blessing if they did.
This comes on the heels of Scott exiting Game 5 against the Nets on Tuesday and being unable to practice on Thursday. If Scott is unable to go, that will open up 20-30 minutes off the bench. The minutes are likely to be dispersed amongst any of T.J. McConnell, James Ennis III, Jonah Bolden and Greg Monroe depending on game flow and matchups.
