Scott has played sparingly for the Hawks since returning from a knee injury and this assignment is an effort to give Scott more playing time. He is expected to play two games for the 87ers before returning to the Hawks.
Scott has played in just three games for the Hawks this season and averaged 9.3 minutes.
"Mike has worked extremely hard to return to full health after missing training camp and the early part of the season," coach Mike Budenholzer said in a statement. "In discussing with Mike how he could get himself back in game shape and contributing to the team faster, we agreed that the best way would be to do an assignment with Delaware where he could play meaningful, competitive minutes."
