Rudy Fernandez Unsure about Signing with Blazers


In an interview with the Spanish Web site Marca.com, Blazer draft pick Rudy Fernandez expressed reservations about signing with Portland next season, in part because of countryman Rodriguez’s inability to crack McMillan’s rotation.

“Sergio is a good player, and it’s very weird to me that the coach isn’t showing much confidence in him,” Fernandez was quoted as saying. “Honestly, it really scares me to think that McMillan could do the same with me.”

Asked if he will go to Portland next season, Fernandez replies: “I haven’t decided yet. That’s the truth. I don’t know if I’ll make the jump now … it’s a difficult decision I’ll need to think about.” [Portland Tribune]
