    Default Rudy....again

    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.

    PG-Felton
    SG-Rudy
    SF-Gallo
    PF-Amare
    C-Randolph

    w/ Douglas, Chandler, Turiaf, Azibuke off the bench

    That is a very good roster with a good mix of offense and defense.

    As I've said before...to me I'm really only looking to package Curry and Chandler to the highest bidder...I want to keep our young guys for once.

    I don't think it will be necessary for us to give Chandler for him. He would be a perfect fit for us, though. Portland really can't ask fo too much and if someone else overpays for him, then fine, we go with what we got.

    I think Bill Walker for Rudy should be enough.

    If it's Bill Walker for Rudy I'm okay...but to me I don't want to trade Felton, Randolph, Gallo, obviously STAT...unless it is for a superstar.

    I could warm up to the idea of trading Chandler for him.

    Felton
    Rudy
    Gallo
    Amar'e
    The Freak (Randolph)

    bench: Turiaf, Azzy, Fields, Bill, Jordan, Rautins, Timofey


    Nice group to start with.

    Issue is I think our best chance to trade Curry for a solid piece is to include Chandler...though I suppose we COULD just let Curry expire.

    Rudy only makes 1.3 million next season. That would be a great steal if we trade Walker for him. After next season, the team option is only 2.2 million. If we can keep chandler in this deal, it would be great. Not sure if Portland would agree.

    i think if we can convince how much a an good player bill walker can be and an asset he is i think portland would consider the trade. I only say this because Rudy and Portland are at the end of the road in terms of their relationship, Rudy wants out and portland doesn't wanna keep him. If donnie could pull this off this would be an amazing steal and give us a true starting 2 gaurd

    Bill Walker + 2nd rounder for Rudy

    It's way better than dumping Chandler who could be a valuable trade asset for someone way better than Rudy Fernandez

    Felton
    Rudy
    Gallo
    Amar'e
    Randolph

    BEAST team

    tough one.... i think rudy can be our starting two. but id still like to keep walker.. if i had to chose id probably trade chandler for rudy and a pick for portland...

    walker is cheaper..walker is young.. and most of all he is way more aggressive than chandler..... its a tough call between walker and chandler...but i think with gallo, fields and alot of small forward available around the league... id rather keep walker.... if chandler were aggresive he would be a super player.. but he too .. well u know.. slow up there....

    After watching the above video, I had no idea how athletic Rudy truly is - dude has serious ups. I was already familiar with his range shooting .368% behind the arc last season but he's a more complete player than I thought.

    I'd pull the trigger on this one and close the chapter on the 2010 off-season. The thing I'd love the most about this trade would be that its filling a NEED. We have no true SG on this roster and this guy fits bill in addition to being a player that Mike D. / Walsh covet.

    I would have no problem sending a package based around Chandler for this guy.
