They have a glaring hole at SG and desperately need to fill that position. Adding Fernandez would give them an excellent outside shooter and ballhandler for a SG.
Adding Fernandez would all but guarantee a playoff spot for the Knicks.
Offer a 1st, 2nd rounder and a bag of basketballs and get it done.

The Knicks are useless with or without Rudy.
Amare isn't even a 20/10 guy, so his signing is wwwaaayyy overhyped. He played with one of the top 5 PG's in the league and couldn't get 20/10. That team blows with or without him.
Miami should sign him.
They need 1 player for sure to fill out their roster. Why not sign a guy who can back up the guard spot.
Sure he isn't a true PG, but with the ball hogs on that team, he doesn't need to be.
He can fill in for Wade when he needs a rest or gets in foul trouble.
He can fill in for Chalmers at PG, and then Wade or Lebron can do one of their "isolation" plays for a few minutes, meaning Fernandez doesn't even have to be a player maker. He can wait for a kick out and shoot the open jumper.
From a basketball stand point, it makes much more sense for him to sign a one, two or three year deal with Miami. He can be their back up guard (like LA has Barnes, et. al) and try to win a ring or two before a major pay day.
NY gives him nothing but extra minutes. In today's NBA market, more minutes means very little.

"The Knicks are useless with or without Rudy."
They will be a playoff contender with the offseason moves they have made.
They have a bench where they will be able to go 9 deep and keep guys rested.

*Ahem* He is signed with Portland. The only way it happens is if they work out a trade.

*Ahem* MOre minutes very little??? Whaaaat???
Rudy has averaged 9.4ppg, 2.7rpg, 2.0apg and 0.9spg
BUT his PER 36 minutes averages translate to 13.8ppg, 3.9rpg, 3.0apg and 1.4spg.
Plus his 38.7% career 3-point shooting will be very beneficial in Mike's high octabe up tempo offense.
