Blazers are actively pursuing trade for Fernandez. Team is willing to keep Fernandez, though, and will not give him away for “free.”
Blazers feel that situation with Fernandez has come to a head. His continuing talk about possible move has team wanting to resolve situation.
If Fernandez chooses to play elsewhere, Blazers could place him on suspended list. Team doesn’t think it will come to that, though.
Only way Fernandez is not on Blazers’ roster at start of season is if he is traded. Team will not release him or “sell” his rights.
Rudy wants the hell out of Portland and the Celtics are one of the teams he is willing to be traded to. What would it take to fetch him? A draft pick or two? Does that even work under the CBA? I don’t know. But I’ve been blogging since fucking 6:00 a.m., my brain is fried, and I’m not in the mood to check it out. Sue me.
Update: P.S. – T-Mac listed four teams he’s interested in, or are interested in him. The Celtics weren’t included. Oh well.
