    In our podcast last week, we wondered whether Scott Machado coming to Houston was an indication that Kyle Lowry was going to be traded (podcast, 25:30 mark) -- of course he was eventually traded, but we did the podcast before that and before Goran walked.

    So today when I met him, it was my first question -- why did you choose Houston, a team trying to re-sign Dragic and having Lowry under contract, when you had several teams coming after you?

    He indicated he knew Kyle Lowry was gone.

    I've heard Machado has looked pretty good so far. His team was up big in scrimmage action today (don't be deceived by the "buzzer beater" shot that won the scrimmage... they changed the score with three minutes left to be a one-point game just to observe how they all played in that situation).

    Also, the reporter also talking to Scott in the video is MK Bower of Fox Sports. He wrote a very good story on Machado and Motiejunas today -- worth reading.

    Machado looks really good. I didn't realize he was such a good rebounder, three pointer, and distributor in college. He seems like he has all the abilities to be a good roleplayer in the NBA.

    He's going to be very good. Looking forward to seeing his distributing skills helping the other young guys (Lamb, White, Motie, Jones) develop.

    Naw, he's just saying what we all knew last season. Kyle had been on his way out for a while, now. He just read and heard what we all read and heard.

    that's definitely one way to sell a free agent on signing with you.
