Default Mavericks land Rudy Fernandez in 3-team trade. Jordan Hamilton sent to Denver

The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have acquired guard Rudy Fernandez and the rights to Petteri Koponen from the Portland Trailblazers and will send the 26th overall selection Jordan Hamilton to Denver and the 57th overall pick Tnaguy Ngombo to Portland. Denver will acquire Andre Miller and Portland will acquire Raymond Felton in the deal.

Fernandez (6-6, 185) is a three-year veteran who was drafted by the Phoenix Suns with the 24th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. His draft rights, along with James Jones, were traded to Portland for cash considerations.

The Palma de Mallorca, Spain native has appeared 218 career games (9 starts) with the Trailblazers and holds career averages of 9.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.1 minutes per game. As a rookie, Fernandez set an NBA record with 159 three-pointers and competed in the 2009 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest and the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge.

The 26-year-old (4/4/85) shooting guard has seen action in 18 postseason games averaging 5.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting .423 from behind-the-arc. Six of those postseason games came against the Mavericks in the opening round of the 2011 Playoffs.

Koponen (6-4, 195) is a native of Helsinki, Finland and was originally the 30th overall selection of the 2007 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. Portland acquired the rights Koponen from Philadelphia for the 42nd pick, Derrick Byars, and cash considerations.

Koponen spent the 2010-11 season playing for Solar Bologna in Italy. He competed in 33 games and averaged 12.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

“We could not be happier with the additions of Rudy Fernandez and Petteri Koponen,” President of Basketball Operations Donnie Nelson said. “Rudy is an athletic, young, exciting player with significant upside. His international and postseason experience will prove to be very valuable. Petteri is a young combo guard who was a first round selection in 2007 and is developing nicely in Europe.”

while i can respect the win now approach we're taking, i'd like to not mortgage our future doing it. i loved hamilton. i'd like to have seen what he could do at the next level, especially with gym rat veterans like kidd, terry, dirk and marion.

but rudy's no slouch either, and given freedom to create with dallas should find more of a comfort level than he had in portland. that's the silver lining anyway.
