Rerevisiting Rudy Fernandez (with poll!)


Rudy's looking to get out of Portland, and according to the always-reliable Marca.com, he's willing to go to Madrid for 2.3 mm euros ($2.75 million) per year.

Today's sports daily Marca reports that Rudy Fernandez has given the 'yes' to Real Madrid if he can opt out of the Portland Trail Blazers. The player wants to be the cornerstone of the new draft white basketball.

In a report signed by Eduardo Schell and José Luis Martínez, MARK details how the romance between the Spaniard and the club Real Madrid is mutual, because whites are willing to pull the house down with a bid of 2.3 million euros season.

Assuming of course that Rudy will drive eastward from Portland toward New York, where he will board a steamer ship back to Spain, should Kahn try to intercede along the way to:

1. Convince Rudy to come to Minnesota ?

2. Convince Portland to get something for Rudy from Minnesota, rather than nothing for him from Madrid?

Several other hurdles include:

1. Does he fit on the roster?

2. Is he worth $3 millionish a year?

3. How much would the Wolves have to give to Portland to get his rights?

The attraction of making a team more welcoming to Rubio is obvious (although I'm not sure how much it matters). The same side of that coin is that if Rudy rejects America to return to Spain, that may not help in getting Ricky over here sooner rather than later.

What do you think?

(p.s. One small reason for this post is to get the phrase "draft white basketball" into the CH lexicon)
