Former Iona College men's basketball standout and Queens resident Scott Machado reached an agreement with the Houston Rockets and played for the franchise in the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, which ran from July 13-18.

After going undrafted in June, the 6' 1” Machado drew interest from several NBA teams before settling in with the Rockets.

"There were other teams but I felt like this was the best fit," Machado told's Adam Zagoria last week. "I felt like I’m going to have a good opportunity here, probably the best opportunity here."

In a recent Houston Rockets press release, Machado was highlighted just after the franchise's three NBA Draft Selections: Connecticut guard/forward Jeremy Lamb, Iowa State forward Royce White and Kentucky forward Terrence Jones.
