Vowing never to make the same mistake again, Houston signs the undrafted Scott Machado and get the right to have him on the team for at least 3 yrs. Kudos to Scott for the loyalty, sticking with the Rockets since they were the first team to consider him and actually give him a chance even though other teams have expressed interest.
I almost expect Jeremy Lin to get injured at some point this season (he's working too damn hard, those ligaments are going to give man) and Scott Machado will turn heads as he fills in at the PG spot.
Rockets definitely do not have a shortage of unselfish players. I expect very nice team chemistry to build up among the guys.
Here are the intangibles on the team:
Faith: Jeremy Lin, Jeremy Lamb
Cerebral Approach: Jeremy Lin, Royce White, Chandler Parsons
Hustle, Hard Work and Sacrifice: Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons, Omer Asik (will give blood for the team), Jon Brockman
Confidence, Courage: Donatas Motiejunas, Jeremy Lin, Royce White
Defensive mindset: Omer Asik, Jeremy Lamb, Chandler Parsons
There's a lot of HEART on this team. I hope a lot of it rubs on Terrence Jones.
Well, you get the picture. We're building what looks to be a good team here folks. Not bad, not bad at all.
