5 NBA Signing And Trade Grades

Atlanta Hawks re-sign Mike Scott to a 3-year, $10 million deal Scott is what I like to call a per minute All Star. He played 18.5 minutes per game, but per 36 minutes he averaged 18.6 points and 6.9 rebounds. To put that into perspective, Paul Millsap was an All Star for the Hawks and averaged 17.9 points and 8.5 rebounds in 33.5 minutes per game. Pretty close right? 3.33 million...
