2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Scott Machado


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-1, 180

School: Iona, Senior


Strengths:
  • Pure pass-first point guard
  • Distributor
  • Makes difficult passes seem easy
  • Court vision
  • Runs offense with great poise
  • Creating for teammates by driving and dishing
  • Awesome in transition, leading the break
  • Capable three-point shooter
  • Body control in the lane
  • Rebounds well for his size





    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks ideal athleticism for NBA point guard
  • Tends to over-penetrate
  • Effectively running half-court sets
  • Gambles too much on the defensive end
  • Defensive effort needs to improve

    Summary: One of the best pure point guards in college basketball, Machado has worked himself into the discussion of being a possible late first-round pick. He is one of the nation's leaders in assists, and his ability to distribute the basketball should certainly earn him a shot in the league. I wouldn't totally be shocked if some team falls in love with him and he sneaks into the middle of the first round, especially in this weaker point guard draft.

    Player Comparison: Ty Lawson.

    Machado certainly isn't as quick Lawson in the open floor or as skilled as a scorer, but the way Machado orchestrated the up-tempo Iona offense reminds me of what Lawson did at North Carolina.
