Machado Invited To NBA Draft Combine
Release: Tuesday 05/22/2012
NEW ROCHELLE, NY - Iona College men's basketball graduate Scott Machado has been invited to the National Basketball Association's Draft Combine held in Chicago on June 7-8. Machado is one of sixty college players invited to the exclusive showcase of NBA Draft prospects.

Since the end of an historic senior campaign, Machado has been training in Los Angeles, CA. He finished his classes and walked in Iona's commencement celebration on May 12. He has since had successful tryouts for a number of NBA teams including the New Jersey Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics.

Machado's classmate, Mike Glover, is also an NBA Draft hopeful. Glover also participated in the Nets draft camp and has been invited to the Chicago Bulls camp later this week. Glover also previously competed in the Portsmouth Invitational in Virginia.

The Iona duo looks to become the first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference performers selected in the NBA Draft since Rider's Jason Thompson was picked 12th by the Sacramento Kings in 2008. Sean Green was the last Iona player selected as the 14th pick in the second round by the Indiana Pacers.
