While Atlanta Hawks' restricted free agent Mike Scott is certainly trying to find a good deal for himself in the NBA, the international phones are ringing.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Scott has a lucrative three-year deal on the table from CSKA-Moscow and is considering taking the offer. It wouldn't be the first time a Hawks' restricted free agent signed overseas for more money, as former Hawks' player Josh Childress once left the NBA to play in Greece on a three-year deal.

In Scott's second year in the NBA with the Hawks, he took advantage of a situation presented by injuries throughout the roster to become a regular rotation player for Atlanta in the playoffs. Scott averaged 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 18.6 minutes during the regular season. In the playoffs, he gave the team 9.4 points and 2.6 rebounds while playing 20.9 minutes per game.

He even gave us this monster dunk over Indiana Pacers' center Ian Mahinmi in the first round.
