This link is an interview Rudy did with a Spanish publication. I haven't seen this posted yet and thought it might provide some insight into what type of player the Bulls might be getting if a trade ever happens. The following is a translation from HoopsHype:
If I could return to Europe I’d be thrilled. But, at the same time, if I could decide my future and some NBA team could assure me some minutes and the team played a way that fits my game, then I’d like to continue playing in the States. Right now it’s 50-50.
"It’s more like we’re trying to talk with (the Blazers) and make them understand my position. And let’s make clear I understand theirs too. We have to come to an agreement and find a way out as soon as possible. I made a great effort going to the States, making less money that I would in Europe. This season, I decided with my agents that the best thing was to try to get traded so I could be on another team with more playing time.
"Not to the point of being depressed, but I’ve been pretty fucked up psychologically. I didn’t feel comfortable on the court and sometimes I preferred to stay on the bench. I didn’t feel capable of helping the team and that’s very tough to handle for any player.
I'd just like to point out that I am in favor of acquiring Rudy. However, this provides a closer look at the fragile state of mind that Rudy was in last year.
