The Atlanta Hawks announced that forward Mike Scott re-signed with the team.

The Hawks did not disclose contract terms, but the restricted free agent agreed to a three-year, $10 million contract with two years guaranteed and a team option earlier this month.

Last summer, the Utah Jazz traded shooting guard Kevin Murphy to the Golden State Warriors. Now they have re-signed Murphy, who had been released by the Warriors.

Murphy was drafted in the second round out of Tennessee Tech in 2012. He saw action in only 17 games for the Jazz before being traded. In 34 games, he averaged 25.5 points playing for the D-League Idaho Stampede (Editing by Frank Pingue)
