NBA D-League Alumni Scott Machado Returning to Golden State Warriors?

USA TODAY Sports

After a strong showing in Las Vegas last month, Scott Machado was surprisingly waived by the Golden State Warriors. A few weeks later, it appears as though he may go on to re-sign with the team soon anyway.

This past season, Scott Machado's rookie year had quite a few back and forth travels.

Following a successful NBA Summer League showing in 2012, the point guard was signed by the Rockets to a multi-year non-guaranteed deal. And though Houston was intrigued by Machado's impressive court vision, the reality is that basketball is a business. Just days before his contract became guaranteed for the season, the Iona College product was let go.

It was then that without any other NBA offers to be had, Machado caught on with the Rockets' NBA D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. While RGV went on to win the NBADL championship this past season, Machado wasn't around to receive a ring. That's because the Vipers had previously traded him to the Santa Cruz Warriors, who were actually on the losing end of The Finals instead.

But Machado had seemingly gotten the last laugh. After playing in Santa Cruz for a little bit, Machado received an NBA call-up from Santa Cruz's parent club, the Golden State Warriors.

As well as Machado had played in Las Vegas in 2012, he followed up such a performance with a terrific encore. Playing alongside new Golden State teammate Kent Bazemore and company, Machado helped lead Golden State to the Summer League title last month.

That's why it came as a surprise that just days following his strong Vegas showing for the Warriors, the team opted to waive him. But perhaps such a move wasn't personal, as the business of basketball reared its head again.

And with that simply in mind, Golden State ultimately looks like they want to keep Machado aboard after all. According to the tweet below, the point guard is expected to re-sign with the team sooner than later.
