    The Houston Rockets have signed Scott Machado

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/8350334?

    HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets have signed Scott Machado, who led the nation in assists last season with Iona.

    The 6-foot-1 Machado played well on the Rockets' summer league team, averaging 8.0 points, a team-high 5.6 assists and 2.2 steals in five games. He closed summer league play by leading the Rockets with 20 points and six assists in a 96-88 win over Chicago.

    Machado, a rookie free agent who averaged 9.9 assists as a senior, averaged 12.2 points, 6.7 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 132 games over four seasons at Iona. Machado is the Gaels' career leader in assists (880) and ranks 17th in NCAA history.

    The Rockets waived forward Diamon Simpson.
    Hang on, yeah it's not a Jazz topic, but this was a player that I kind of wish the Jazz would have taken with their second round pick. I like who they took but with the Jazz's weakness at point guard he would have been a cheap backup.

    Oh, I see they waived a player to make room.
    How many players do the rockets now have under contract...30 or so? It will be interesting come cut down day if they're unable to make any 2-for-1 trades.
    JUST LOSE BABY!

    I don't think he'll be very good, but I admit I'm intrigued and will be watching.

    I wanted this guy in the 2nd round. Let that be known to the board and the internet basketball world.

    Yeah. I was high on him then cooled on him substantially. But he was worth a look considering that the Jazz are missing any PGs <30. I'll be paying attention.

    Watched him in Summer League. I just don't see it. He worked his butt off is summer league on a stacked team and was just average for the Summer league. He can pass and he hit a few shots. But I still can't seem how he can guard anyone any good.
    Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    I don't know anything about him. I saw the headline and remembered that some people here were high on him before.

    So I was just about to post about how we could get rid of Roger and pick him up when I went to draft express and saw that they had his BEST case scenario for him as Earl Watson.

    wow, maybe not. i'd still give him a shot, but - wow.

    we have to do it on the off chance that he becomes productive, just to rub it in the rockets' face

    Better passer than Watson, worse defender. Slightly better shooter.

    You're saying that Machado is slightly better shooter than the 16% from 3 point land Watson?

    i liked machado. but he's spent almost the entire year either on the inactive list or in the D-league, so it's hard to gauge if he's really NBA-ready.
    check out the jazzbros.com blog for more on the jazz.

    Brilliant detective work. It's a good thing that site exists.
