The Los Angeles Lakers have signed G-League standout Scott Machado to a 10-day contract, the team announced in a news release.

Machado is a 6-foot-1 point guard and had been playing for the South Bay Lakers. He is averaging 16.4 points and 8.0 assists and is the reigning G League Player of the Week.
