"Suspect #2 (Mike Scott) stated that after the traffic stop that he advised law enforcement officers that the drugs located within the vehicle belonged to him. Suspect #2 stated that his brother was unaware of the drugs and that he takes full responsibility for the drugs."
According to Vivlamore, the league does not need to wait for the legal process to run its course in order to take disciplinary measures against Scott. Scott averaged 7.8 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in the regular season for Atlanta in 2014-15.
