Bring Rudy Fernandez to Chicago (Pritchslap the Blazers)



Rudy Fernandez is unhappy in Portland (who wouldn't be).    He wants to start, wants to play more, he wants to be closer to family and friends, he wants his nickname "Spanish Fly" to take off, and he wants out of McMillan's "slow it down / pass it to Roy / watch" offense.  (Though the experience will probably help him in the Bulls "discombobulated / pass it to Rose / watch" offense.)

Fernandez has 2 more years left on an extremely cheap contract.  He may bolt back to Spain if he can't find the love in the NBA.  How about the Bulls showing him some love?  It just so happens the Bulls have a hole at the 2 guard...  So what would it take for Fernandez to be traded out of Portland (besides the imminent firing of Mr. Pritchslap)?

Thonus proposes sending our 1st round pick or James Johnson to Portland for Rudy's services.  I'm optimistic, but I think it would take more than that.

Perhaps we could throw in the pick we are going to get from the Bobcats in 2016.  Or maybe we give up the rights to Omer Asik?  Rudy looks like a good fit with Rose, he is cheap, and he won't upset 2010.  I would love to see the Bulls make it a priority to pry Rudy out of Portland. 

Things I like about Rudy -

1.  He is a shooter

2.  He loves to play uptemo

3.  He already knows how to passively-aggressively insult his coach

Asked if he is happy with McMillan as coach, Fernandez paused for several seconds, smiled, and turned toward the weight room at the Blazers’ practice facility. "I got to go work out now," he said.
