Rudy Fernandez Signs With Real Madrid


Despite previously stating that he had no intention of playing in Spain this season, The Associate Press is reporting that Mavericks Guard Rudy Fernandez has signed a deal to play with Real Madrid during the lockout, becoming the latest NBA player to head overseas: “Dallas Mavericks guard Rudy Fernandez has signed with Real Madrid’s basketball team during the NBA lockout. Madrid says Fernandez has agreed to play in Spain during the labor negotiations. The deal includes an option for Fernandez to play with Madrid once his contract with the NBA champions ends. Dallas acquired Fernandez in June after three seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers. He helped Spain win its second straight European Championship title Sunday. Fernandez has averaged 9.1 points over 24.1 minutes for his career and is known for his explosive play and 3-point shooting.”

    Good. Enough of that Barcelona trend.

    I really want to see Rudy play for the Mavs. I wanted to see if he’s A) Eurostar who just can’t cut it in the NBA or B) good player stuck in the wrong system and flooded backcourt in Portland.

    GOOD, HE CAN STAY IN SPAIN. I WANT JCN BACK IN THE NBA.

    Rudy is a good reinforcement for Real Madrid. I hope he was smart enough to sign only for the lockout duration. I support Barcelona, let’s see how does he play the first match against Barcelona (Spanish Supercup match)
