The deal that sent James Harden to the Houston Rockets included rookie Jeremy Lamb going to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Rockets guard Jeremy Lin attempted to give his well-wishes to Lamb but accidentally called Rockets rookie Scott Machado by mistake.Here are the fine points from the Houston Chronicle:Machado had been nervously awaiting word on whether he had made the Rockets’ roster. As Lin wished him well, his heart skipped a few beats until he realized he did not need to worry. Lin had thought he called Jeremy Lamb, who had just been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. By Monday, Machado knew made the team when no one called. “I was like, ‘Hey, it’s Scott, it’s not Jeremy,’ ” Machado said of his conversation with Lin. “’Did you hear something about me?’ I was all nervous. He was like, “Oh, I apologize, I apologize.’ It all worked out.”The moves also came as a huge relief to Machado, who had a non-guaranteed contract and many nervous moments when the trade filled the Rockets roster and a teammate accidentally gave him a call. “I was a little nervous, even before they got traded,” said Machado. “We had four good point guards here and I was the newcomer, the undrafted one. With a whole bunch of people coming in there was nervousness.Below is a video of Machado talking about the mistaken call:(Courtesy of Ball Don't Lie)
