    Default Portland Searching For Best Offer For Rudy (NYC Offers Chandler; Others 1st-R Picks)

    The honeymoon has come crashing down.

    Rudy Fernandez, the talented Spanish guard who mesmerized the Blazer faithful, is headed for a divorce with the Portland franchise and it may not be pretty if you listen to his agent.

    “Portland and I have had numerous discussions, almost daily, on the situation,” Andy Miller told HoopsHype.com. “I think this situation is headed for a collision course because Rudy’s perspective on where he wants to be and what he wants to do and how he wants to accomplish it is on the opposite of the spectrum from where Portland sees the situation.

    “I don’t think (the relationship) is reparable.”

    If they were interested in Calderon, Fernandez and Przybilla would work financially.

    they'd have to get rid of 'dre for them to get calderon.

    i think they could be interested in calderon as he is a cheaper contract than that of miller.

    He's getting old and is in his final year if the team elects not to pick up his option. That option depends a lot on what happens this season.

    MADRID, Spain - I mentioned this in my report yesterday on the feud/pending divorce between Rudy Fernandez and the Portland Trail Blazers, but it belongs in the lead paragraph for this site: The Knicks are among the teams trying to acquire the Spanish shooting guard, and they have offered Wilson Chandler.

    Other offers on the table include the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls each offering a No. 1 draft pick in 2011, a league source told ESPN.com.

    But after the Blazers turned down several offers of first-round picks in the teens on draft night when the team was still being run by former general manager Kevin Pritchard, they are looking to see if they can get a similar offer from a team they believe will finish in the middle of the pack next season.

    Chandler has had an eventful offseason, but his brush with the law is not something that is scaring the Blazers from taking him in a trade. New Portland general manager Rich Cho is simply trying to scour the league for the best offer he can find, and something more appealing than Chandler or a pick that'll probably fall in the mid-20s could become available between now and the start of training camp.

    i'd like him to be a raptor but we have no room because we already have acquired wright(stupid, bryan), we could have offered a couple of draft picks and maybe banks and evans in expirings.

    Rudy won't get the minutes he wants in Toronto either so there is no point of bringing over.

    Rudy isn't as good as Rudy thinks he is.

    He's big (bigger than most players that guard him), he can shoot incredibly from the 3, he can drive really well, he can dunk, he can pass, he can ball-handle, he can defend (!), he can steal, he can do whatever DeMar can do, and can do more and better. So yes, he is. He is like a better younger version of Barbosa, but more explosive, maybe a little less quick.

    i don't think a little less quick is right.

    try slightly slower.

    They would probably want Sonny Weems.

    I'd give them Weems. Fernandez can do anything Weems can, but can do alot more.

    I desperately want Rudy now. I was just thinking of what he could bring to the team. So, I propose Andre Miller and Rudy for Calderon, Weems and Wright.

    rudy might just complain if his intentions are really just to return to europe, it's a risk that i'm not sure giving your starting pg, a decent forward-guard with potential, and another potentially decent sf for rudy and like a 34 year old pg.
