2012 NBA Draft Rumors: Iona's Scott Machado Top Undrafted Free Agent

Former Iona guard Scott Machado went undrafted in Thursday night's 2012 NBA Draft, but is still desired by several teams as an undrafted free agent.

It was a surprise that Machado, who averaged 13.6 points and 9.9 assists as a senior, was not selected in the draft, but Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that he now has no shortage of suitors.

SB Nation's Jonathan Tjarks lists Machado as the top undrafted free agent available.

I'm not sure what UNC's Kendall Marshall did, besides have much better teammates, to be viewed as such a better prospect than Machado. At 6'1'' and 205 pounds, Machado is athletic enough to be an NBA PG while putting up absolutely absurd statistics in college: 13.6 points on 49.5-percent shooting and 40.4-percent from deep, 4.9 rebounds and 9.9 assists on 2.6 turnovers a game.

He's a pure point guard who did a magnificent job running Iona's uptempo offense. Last year was a good year for lightly regarded young point guards (Jeremy Lin, Isaiah Thomas). Machado, if given the right opportunity, could follow in their footsteps.
