Scola agreed to a one-year deal with the Nets on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical reports.Scola, now 36-years-old, has found a new home after a 2015-16 campaign with the Raptors in which he averaged 8.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 22 minutes per game through 76 games. Despite his age, the veteran has been able to stay healthy for the most part, appearing in at least 76 games throughout the past four seasons dating back to 2012. Although he was a starter in Toronto, Brooklyn’s frontcourt features the likes of Brook Lopez, Trevor Booker, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. This may call for Scola’s role to be slightly reduced as he enters his 10th season in the league.

Scola produced six points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and an assist over 14 minutes during Thursday’s 108-89 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals series.The veteran forward was tabbed for the start in Game 2, but ended up receiving the same 14-minute allotment he’d seen in Game 1, when he came off the bench. Scola wasn’t able to make much of an impact during his time on the court, and could potentially return to a reserve role in Game 3. Prior to his game action in the series opener, the 36-year-old had played only five minutes over the prior eight postseason contests, with the entirety of that playing time having come in Game 3 of the second-round series versus the Heat.

Scola will start in Thursday’s Game 2 against the Cavaliers.Scola played just 14 minutes in Game 1, recording seven points and two rebounds, making it a shocking last minute announcement that he’ll draw the start over Patrick Patterson. The change is likely due to the Raptors getting blown out in Game 1 and looking to change things up to improve going forward. Look for Scola to see a large minutes increase while he is in the starting lineup.
May 10, 2016
Scola (coach’s decision) didn’t play in Monday’s 94-87 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 4 of the series.Though Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) missed Game 4 and is expected to sit out the rest of the series, it didn’t open up any extra minutes for Scola, who has now gone unused off the bench in six of the Raptors’ last seven postseason games.
April 27, 2016
Scola (coach’s decision) didn’t play in Tuesday’s 102-99 Game 5 win over the Pacers.Coach Dwane Casey dropped Scola from the starting lineup for the first time in the series in favor of Patrick Patterson, and then didn’t turn to Scola off the bench even when the Raptors closed the first quarter trailing by 15 points. Instead, Casey stuck with a nine-man rotation that led a furious comeback in the fourth quarter, an arrangement he could choose to stick with in Game 6. If that’s the case, expect Scola to remain out of the mix unless the game devolves into a blowout.
