Mike Scott: 2 years, $9.8 million (Philadelphia 76ers)

With or without the ninja headband, Mike Scott is a valuable asset to the Philadelphia 76ers‘ bench. While the makeup of this team’s starting five will be drastically different next season, bringing back Scott on a cheap, two-year bargain deal is an undeniable win for the Sixers.

Last season, Scott was a welcome albeit understated inclusion in the Tobias Harris trade. He only averaged 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in his 24 minutes per game in Philly, but shot 41.2 percent from 3-point range to help spread the floor and provide much-needed depth on a short bench.

At just under $5 million a season, the Sixers are bringing back a fan favorite/stretch-big who can play with most lineups. There are plenty of question marks about fit and chemistry for this roster moving forward, but Mike Scott shouldn’t be one of them.

Grade: A-
