In 1980, Scott was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, and in 1983, he was a candidate for First Team All-Pac-10 honors. He played for the Sun Devils his entire career, scoring 17.5 points on average each game.

In the summer of 1997, Scott committed to playing for Panathinaikos of the Greek Basket League for the 1997–98 campaign.

He competed for Panathinaikos in both the Greek Basket League and the FIBA Saporta Cup (formerly known as the FIBA EuroCup), the continent of Europe’s secondary level competition following the top-tier EuroLeague.

He played 25.6 minutes per game in 17 games for the Saporta Cup in 1997–98, averaging 13.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 steals.

Scott’s scoring in numerous pivotal games assisted his team in capturing the Greek Basket League title. In 34 games in the 1997–98 Greek Basket League, he averaged 17.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.3 steals while playing 33.7 minutes each game.

In 2000, Scott took over the floundering New Jersey Nets. When Jason Kidd joined the team in 2001–02, his team’s struggles in his first year as coach were over, and the Nets went on to establish a franchise record with 52 victories.

They made it to their first NBA Finals matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers after winning their first Atlantic Division championship.

Scott was appointed the New Orleans Hornets’ head coach in 2004. The franchise selected Chris Paul in the fifth round of the 2005 draft, and he won Rookie of the Year the following season.

He guided the group to two straight seasons below.500 in 2005-06 and 2006-07. The majority of the team’s home games were played in Oklahoma City due to the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
