CanisHoopus: Rudy + #22 for #16 + #23?

57

Here is the trade with Portland. Rumor 2 (Courtesy of SnP): The Trade: Rudy Fernandez as a possible acquisition target. The potential trade is based off of a brief mention of an IM by SnP (It's just a rumor and one of many possible options, don't hold him liable if this particular option doens't happen!): Rudy + 22 for 16 + 23 Analysis: Rubio bait which also gives us a solid starter at the 2 who can also play the 3 for brief periods (unreliable defensive metrics say he is much more suited for the 2). Already has good chemistry with Rubio, and apparently Fernandez performs better when he is playing with his friends, Sergio last year. Kind of a bad reason to play better and most likely an excuse and nothing more, but it's possible he will get some sort or renewed vigor. Is this fair value for Rudy? This is obviously motivated to make Rubio happy. This story (in the comments section) shows that they are committed to doing whatever it takes to get Rubio here when the buyout is tolerable.
