Default Rudy Fernandez not happy in Portland?

so...I just read that on the ISH rumor page and I am a bit surprised to hear that and intrigued. I think Rudy is way too talented to not be in the NBA (he might go back to Spain) and I feel that Fernandez would be the perfect 6th man for us. Although I would start him right now over Kirk at the two-spot if he was available.

So my questions for my Bulls brothers are this; what is the general opinion on Rudy Fernandez, and what players could we use to trade for him this summer?

I don't like his attitude. He thinks he is Ginobili Jr., and he clearly isn't. Outside than good 3-point shooting and above average athleticism for a white guy, he's got nothing special. He should be happy to be a part of a very promising future in Portland, but for some reason he isn't and demands more minutes.

Contract.

He has a team friendly contract, and his treatment would be the polar opposite.

I like Kirk and what he does for this team, but the main reasoning for his detractors is his contract.

I like him because he's better then most of the other 2's available in the free agency. I think he fits in well offensively with the team.
If we could get him for this years 1st I would probably do it. Any more and it's too much.

If we're talking about Portland than i'd much rather go after Martell Webster. The Blazers have been interested in Kirk in the past so maybe a deal can be made between the two teams. Their salaries differ so other players would have to be included in the deal for it to work. I think Rudy just wants to get more minutes and I think Portland will find a way to move Webster in order to make it happen. I think they like Rudy a little more and with Roy, Bayless and Batum there then that leaves Webster as the odd man out. So if we can work out a trade where we ship out Kirk and get back Webster i'd make it happen. Webster is automatically plugged into the starting lineup at the 2 spot and gives us the outside shooting threat we've desperately been in need of.

I dislike Kirk as well, but I dislike Luol Deng x10 more. Kirk & Deng fade away in the 4th quarter and their defense is very overrated.

Not seeing how you can hate the players for their contracts. Hate the front office for being stupid enough to offer it.

Granted his injuries hurt us but when Deng is healthy hes a beast, moreso than Kirk. While youre at it hate on the medical staff too.

Glide...I thought everyone knew that I luv Kirk Hinrich. I am the biggest defender of Kirk on ISH.

Right now I would start Rudy over Kirk because I feel he will knock down those threes more often than Kirk. I would prefer to have him come off the bench and play 30 minutes a night though, basically be the better-than "Bum Judas" that we are lacking.

Me hate Sauerkraut Kirk? In what universe?

Default Re: Rudy Fernandez not happy in Portland?

If he could be had for this years first and maybe next years as well I would do it. Rose, Hinrich, and Fernandez make up a pretty solid back-court rotation.
