Scola signed a contract Sunday to play with Shanxi in China, Sportando reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scola has spent the last 10 years of his career in the NBA on five different teams, and he was most recently released by the Nets in February. The Argentinean will now make the transfer overseas to China, where he'll look for an opportunity to have more playing time and production and 37 years old.

Scola was waived Monday by the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Scola has seen himself fall out of the Nets' regular rotation after the team shifted their focus to their core of young players. At 36 years old, Scola is reaching the tail-end of his NBA career but could still provide veteran leadership on a team willing to use their roster spot on the Argentinian. However, Scola's days of being a reliably productive player in the NBA are likely over.

Scola (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 95-90 loss to the Knicks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With the Nets now at 9-40 on the season, coach Kenny Atkinson seems inclined to turn the frontcourt minutes over to his younger options, which was evident in Atkinson's decision to bench the 29-year-old Trevor Booker for the first time all season in favor of the 22-year-old Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. It appears that Scola, 36, finds himself even further down in the pecking order in the frontcourt, with Brook Lopez, Hollis-Jefferson, Booker, Justin Hamilton and Quincy Acy all seemingly ahead of him on the depth chart. That means that Scola won't be included in the rotation most nights, even in some games where the Nets are on the wrong end of a blowout.

Scola (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 104-95 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Trevor Booker's return from a one-game absence due to a hip contusion left no room in the rotation for Scola, who had previously logged 16 minutes in a loss to the Hawks on Tuesday. When the Nets are at full health in the frontcourt, Scola doesn't figure to see the floor, even in most blowouts. The 36-year-old has appeared in only two of the Nets' last nine games.

Scola will return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

Scola received the spot start Tuesday with Brook Lopez sitting out for rest, logging nine points and five rebounds over 18 minutes. He should see his playing time decrease with Lopez back in the lineup, which only further hurts his fantasy value. Scola likely isn't worth a look unless injuries occur higher up in the depth chart.

Scola started at center in place of Brook Lopez (rest) and tallied nine points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and five rebounds across 18 minutes during a 116-104 loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The start didn't equate to huge minutes for the 36-year-old, who didn't get many more minutes than he normally would receive in his bench role. Scola is usually good for a few buckets a game, but he has only played more than 20 minutes once this season, which came in Brooklyn's first game of the year.

Scola will start at center for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Scola has seen limited playing time all season, but with Brook Lopez getting the night off for rest, he'll get a chance to work with the starting five. Look for Scola to see a significant increase in minutes, potentially providing some short term DFS value for the time being. He'll likely move back to the bench come Thursday's game against the Warriors.

Scola notched 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes in Saturday's 130-101 loss to the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Scola had been exiled from coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation over the previous two games and had only seen 11 or fewer minutes in the three games prior to that, but with the Spurs turning Saturday's contest into a blowout early, the veteran benefited from some extra run in garbage time. Despite the strong outing, Scola remains well behind Brook Lopez, Trevor Booker and Justin Hamilton in the team's rotation of big men, so fantasy players shouldn't take away much from this performance.

Scola generated 14 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds (five offensive), two assists and one steal across 18 minutes in Saturday's 110-108 loss to the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

The Nets had more minutes available in the frontcourt with Brook Lopez sitting out for rest, and Scola was able to take advantage by nearly coming away with a double-double. The veteran has given the Nets some productive play off the bench in the early going, but with Lopez entrenched as the starting center and Trevor Booker thriving as the starting power forward, Scola hasn't really been able to make a push for a promotion.

Scola recorded 14 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and five assists across 28 minutes in Thursday's 100-97 preseason loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Scola has tallied double-digit scoring efforts in all three of his preseason appearances, but it doesn't seem to have given him any momentum in the job battle at power forward. Trevor Booker has started all four of the Nets' exhibition contests at that position and delivered his best game Thursday night, recording a double-double of his own with 11 points and 12 boards. Scola looks like he'll open the season as Booker's primary backup, but both players could see the minutes at the power forward distributed relatively evenly between them.
