Report: Scott Considering Offer from Russian Team

Former Virginia basketball star Mike Scott is reportedly considering an interensting career move.

Citing sources, Yahoo! Sports NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowksi posted Tuesday afternoon on Twitter that Scott is considering a "lucrative three-year offer" with CSKA-Moscow, one of 24 teams in the Euroleague basketball league.

Scott is currently a restricted NBA free agent -- meaning his current team, the Atlanta Hawks, can match any contract offered by another NBA team.

Wojnarowski said in his tweet that Scott's preference is to stay in the NBA.

The Hawks took Scott out of UVa in Round 2 of the 2012 Draft, after an All-ACC senior season with the Cavaliers. Scott averaged 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 80 games during the 2013-14 regular season, and appeared in all seven of Atlanta's playoff games.
