The Knicks.

G-Felton
G-
F-Gallinari
F-Randolph
C-Amare

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.

Disagree???

Lets Throwdown!!!


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.

G-Felton
G-Fernandez
F-Gallinari
F-Randolph
C-Amare

Bench

G/F-Walker
G/F-Azubuike
G-Douglas
F-Chandler
F/C-Turiaf

They have a bench where they will be able to go 9 deep and keep guys rested.

"From a basketball stand point, it makes much more sense for him to sign a one, two or three year deal with Miami."

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

"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"

*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.

BIG DIFFERENCE.

Plus his 38.7% career 3-point shooting will be very beneficial in Mike's high octabe up tempo offense.

Word is Rudey wants out of Portland because he is tired of sitting behind Brandon Roy.

July 29, 2010  03:58 AM ET

This makes to much sense, Fernandez would be a good shooting guard. No wonder the Blazers took the option to pick up the third year of his contract.

July 29, 2010  04:20 AM ET

It appears both sides agree that Fernandez is a talent, but that Portland is not the best situation for him. Fernandez averaged 8.1 points in 23.2 minutes a game last season.

"I totally understand how he feels," McMillan said Tuesday. "He was a star in his league. He was Brandon Roy. Now, he's playing behind an All-Star and the minutes are really limited. For me, I can make it work, but it's not about me. It's about him."

I was thinking the same thing, but do you know what his contract is worth? 1.25 million. Miami Heat wouldn't be able to afford him.

When making a trade, there is always ways to pay. Draft picks, exceptions, cap relief, etc...

July 29, 2010  04:27 AM ET

But your getting his contract, period.

July 29, 2010  04:33 AM ET

This Heat team doesn't need a traditional point guard when you have Lebron & Wade on the floor at the same time. Fernandez wants more playing time, he is not going to get it in Miami.

Thank you for proving my point. That means he can spell Chalmers, LBJ or Wade. He will get ample playing time being the 2nd guard in both spots

If he doesn't want to sit behind Brandon Roy, why would he want to sit behind Wade?

As Dexter pointed out, money is a factor. Do you wanna play behind Roy, NOT win a championship and try to sign a deal as a starter... or do you want to join a winner, try to join a team as a starting guard with a ring. Or, you can do as DJ said and join a team that gives you neither. Leaning right so far. From a business/basketball stand point, it makes sense to join a contender.

July 29, 2010  05:06 AM ET

I wouldn't have picked either team, so holding my vote for now... will wait for more arguments.

July 29, 2010  07:57 AM ET

vote left, right doesnt realize fernandez is not a free agent so its not about signing, and the heat have no one to trade to get him so its almost impossible for them to get him

both choices suck, id say the celtics

July 29, 2010  08:07 AM ET

The Heat barely have players as it is, they cant trade away any of the losers they have wrapped around the three idiots. They are low on cash as well so that is out too. Voting left.

July 29, 2010  08:10 AM ET

The Celtics brotha!!!

July 29, 2010  09:24 AM ET

Right's argument makes more sense. NYK need a SG and Fernandez wants to be able to play more which would also include being able to touch the ball. He wouldn't be able to do that in Miami. They already have three young players who were used to being their teams go-to guy.

Knicks need that type of player... even though they don't have the good roster yet but they still have money that can be used this summer still or next.

U mean left?

He's no free agent. Plus the Knicks really make sense for him and vice versa. He would get alot of PT there and his contract is exactly what NY is looking for. I'm not so sure about giving up yet another 1st round pick. As it is Houston retains the right to swap picks with the Knicks coming year (top 1 protected) and owns their 2012 pick (top 5 protected).

Miami makes no sense at all (even if he was a fa), They have Mike Miller and James Jones as shooters and Chalmers and Arroyo as PGs.

Rudy is still young enough to play for a contender, where he actually matters at some point in his career.

that would be a good pick up right there

Chicago! Can possibly start with this club and may run well with Derrick Rose. I made a three team trade proposal on this site elsewhere involving the Bulls, Blazers, and Lakers.

Bulls Acquires Rudy Fernandez / Joel Przbilla and trade Taj Gibson who ends up on the Lakers.

Portland Acquires Sasha Vujacic and James Johnson and trades Rudy Fernandez and Joel Przbilla who ends up on Chicago.

The Lakers Acquire Taj Gibson and trades Sasha Vujacic who ends up in Portland.
