Portland Willing To Trade Fernandez
The Trail Blazers are open to trading Rudy Fernandez, the guard told Spanish language newspaper El Mundo Deportivo.
"Portland is willing to make a trade and the truth is I'm pleased they want to do it," Fernandez told the paper.
"Now we have to find a team where I can have an important role or where I can find the dynamics I enjoyed in Portland the first year."
HoopsHype.com translated the original article.
"My agents are in the United States, they are speaking with them and if something comes up they will travel to Portland," Fernandez continued.

Who wants him? What would you give for him?
I don't think we need to give up Chandler for him. It would be ideal to get Rudy and keep Chander.
We actually don't have to trade anything. We're enough under the cap we can absorb his contract.
I think cash + our 2nd round picks (from Lee trade) should be enough. Maybe even throw in Bill Walker if necessary.
I personally think Rudy would excel here. We need a legit starting SG and Rudy could be that player. He's perfect for this system.
w/ Douglas, Chandler, Turiaf, Azibuke off the bench
That is a very good roster with a good mix of offense and defense.
