Though the Warriors essentially let the 87ers take Hobson away, they could have, nevertheless, still invited him to NBA training camp had they wanted to. Instead, RidiculousUpside.com has learned exclusively that two of his Santa Cruz teammates (Cameron Jones and Scott Machado) are expected to be in camp instead. What's more, Stephen Curry's little brother, Seth, is expected to be in town for that as well. Needless to say, Hobson wasn't at all too pleased about that. Ridiculous Upside

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Queens native told SNY.tv on Monday evening that he is unlikely to play for Brazil this summer at the FIBA Americas Championship, which runs from August 30-September 11 in Venezuela. The top four finishers there qualify for next summer’s FIBA World Cup, which is the new name for what used to be the FIBA World Championship. “His first priority is to make the Warriors,” a source close to the situation told SNY.tv on Monday evening. “Have to sacrifice National Team.” ZagsBlog.com

Machado signed a 10-day contract with the Warriors on April 7, was promptly sent down to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the D-League and was ultimately signed by the Warriors for the rest of the season on April 17. He saw action in five playoff games for the Warriors, who were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals by the San Antonio Spurs in six games. “That was a very valuable experience,” Machado said. “I’ve never played in in such a wonderfdul atmosphere, being part of the NBA playoffs at that. The NCAA Tournament was wonderful, but the NBA playoffs was a whole different notch. It’s everyone’s dream and I was front and center being able to help my team.” ZagsBlog.com

The fact that Machado is back in Santa Cruz means that Golden State wasn't looking for immediate point guard help upon signing him. Because they had the roster spot available, however, perhaps the organization didn't mind allowing Machado to occupy it for a bit if that meant ultimately keeping him in the fold for however much longer. If nothing else, Machado will stay aboard for Santa Cruz's first round playoff series this week, and if he is awarded another ten-day contract (or just subsequently returns to the D-League if not signed by another NBA team), he could stay in town should the team advance as well. Despite this suggested logic and deductive reasoning, sources close to the situation tell RidiculousUpside.com that Machado could go on to ultimately sign a non-guaranteed multi-year contract with Golden State, much like the one he signed with Houston last offseason. Such a deal would keep him a Warrior for the remainder of the season, and give the organization the flexibility to keep him aboard for future season(s), if so desired. Machado shares similar roots with GSW head coach Mark Jackson, as both are born and bred Queens, New York point guard products. At least that appears to be in the young gun's favor.

The Golden State Warriors have assigned guard Scott Machado to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today. Machado was signed by the Warriors as a GATORADE Call-Up from Santa Cruz on April 7. He appeared in 10 games for the Warriors’ D-League affiliate prior to his call-up, averaging 6.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 15.0 minutes. In 28 D-League games combined this year with Santa Cruz and Rio Grande Valley, Machado has averaged 8.9 points 2.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 24.0 minutes per contest. NBA.com

Machado is thrilled to be back in the league and to be playing on a 10-day contract for a team headed for the playoffs, but a recent devastation in his personal life won’t allow many positive emotions to show right now. “My emotions are crazy, really on a rollercoaster,” the rookie point guard said. “It’s been a rough year, so I know that being back here before the playoff starts is really a blessing.” Machado just got back from New York, where he had to bury his 61-year-old father. Luiz Machado, a livery cab driver, suffered a fatal heart attack while being arrested by for taking illegal fares by Taxi and Limousine Commission officers at Kennedy Airport on March 28.
