Dennis Scott will be inducted into Orlando Magic Hall of Fame

The Orlando Magic announced that Dennis Scott will soon be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame, becoming the 12th person to receive this honor.

“Dennis still remains one of the elite, long-range shooters in both Orlando Magic and NBA history,” Magic CEO Alex Martins said. “His ability to shoot from beyond the three-point arc was a major key to our success during his time in Orlando and his records stand to this day. We are proud to make Dennis the next inductee into the Orlando Magic Hall of Fame.”

Scott was drafted by the Magic with the No. 4 overall pick in the 1990 NBA Draft. He played seven seasons with Orlando (from 1990 to 1997), and helped the Magic advance to the 1995 NBA Finals.

Appearing in 446 regular-season games (including 322 starts), Scott averaged 14.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 30.7 minutes while shooting 40.3% from three-point range (981-of-2,432 from deep). Scott also appeared in 41 playoff games (including 31 starts) with Orlando, averaging 12.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists, while shooting 36.4% from three (92-of 253 from deep).

During the 1995-96 season, Scott set a then-NBA single-season-record with 267 three-pointers made, which lasted for 10 years. The 267 three-pointers remains the franchise record for most made in a season. On April 18, 1996 vs. Atlanta, Scott connected on 11 three-pointers, breaking the then-NBA single-game-record — a mark that lasted for almost seven seasons. The 11 three-pointers also remains the franchise record for most threes in a game. On May 25, 1995 vs. Indiana, Scott made 7 three-pointers during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, setting a franchise playoff-record that still stands today.

Scott remains the Magic's all-time leader in three-pointers made with 981. Entering this season, he also ranks among the franchise’s all-time leaders in three-pointers attempted (second, 2,432), field-goals attempted (seventh, 5,737), games played (eighth, 446), steals (eighth, 429), points (10th, 6,603), field-goals made (tenth, 2,421) and minutes played (10th, 13,692).

Previous inductees in the Orlando Magic Hall of Fame include Pat Williams (2014), Nick Anderson (2014), Shaquille O’Neal (2015), the late Rich DeVos (2016), Anfernee Hardaway (2017), Jimmy Hewitt (2017), Tracy McGrady (2018), David Steele (2019), Darrell Armstrong (2020), John Gabriel (2022) and Brian Hill (2022). The inductees are selected based on their overall contributions to the team and organization (on and off the court), years of service, impact in the community and general character. 

The Orlando Magic Hall of Fame is an exhibit that's located on the terrace level of the Amway Center near the Nutrilite Magic Fan Experience.
