NBA Role: veteran power forward • BKN Depth Chart: Rotation

Luis Scola is nearing the end of the tracks but he’s one of those savvy old vets – if he gets into a rhythm, it just might be a Star UnderDOG of the Night performance; at this stage, Scola is equipped to play 25 minutes in an exclusively scoring role – guys still fall for his elbow fake (Scola loves to “show and go” but is more than capable of hitting the open jumper); has recently added a three-point shot to his arsenal; doesn’t defend much these days; for any young squad, Scola’s a reliable veteran leader; even at the age of 36, Scola can stillll (occasionally) transform into Michael Jordan during international play & turn in fine, double-double performances; coming off the bench for Coach Atkinson’s scrappy Nets, Scola has a little gas left in the tank
