Rudy Fernandez Will Play In Spain For Real Madrid

Rudy Fernandez has signed in Spain for the upcoming season after being traded to the Dallas Mavericks on the night of the NBA Draft. Fernandez, a Spanish native, will play for Real Madrid in the Euroleague.

Fernandez is under contract next season for a little over two million dollars in the NBA, meaning his contract with Real Madrid will end whenever the NBA lockout does, but a return to the Euroleague has been in the cards for quite some time as there were numerous reports that he was unhappy with his role with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Spaniard is no stranger to playing in Spain as he spent the first eight seasons of his basketball career in the Spanish ACB before taking his talents to the NBA, but this will be his first time playing for Real Madrid as the rest of his Spanish career was spent with Joventut Badalona.

Along with Fernandez, Real Madrid has also signed fringe NBA players Jaycee Carroll and Sergio Rodriguez along with returning previous NBA Draft picks Nikola Mirotic, Sergio Llull and Ante Tomic.
