The NBA has announced that Mike Scott's Flagrant 2 foul call on Monday's contest between the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks has been downgraded to a Flagrant 1, per Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The 31-year-old power forward was ejected in the second quarter against the Hawks, as all Flagrant 2 calls result to immediate ejections.

With Scott out for the remainder of the matchup, the Sixers had trouble putting the Hawks to bed. Eventually, Philly eked out a road win in Atlanta, with Scott watching from afar in the locker room.

The call in question against Scott came in a transition opportunity against 24-year-old Hawks center Damian Jones, who was chest bumped and lightly shoved by Scott whilst driving to the basket.

Mike Scott initially arrived in the City of Brotherly Love in the Tobias Harris trade with the Los Angeles Clippers last February. The Sixers then decided to re-sign him this past offseason, inking a two-year, $9.8 million contract.

Scott spent the first five seasons of his professional career in Atlanta, averaging 7.1 points and 3.0 rebounds per game in 281 appearances and just seven starts. Atlanta selected the 6-foot-8 Virginia product in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft.

Sensing an impact on the Sixers, though, Philly's front office brought back Scott to shore up the team's bench. Scott had played for four franchises in three seasons, including the Washington Wizards, before finding a new home in the southeast Pennsylvania metropolis.
