Marca.com has reported that Real Madrid has signed Rudy Fernandez, whom the Denver Nuggets didn’t tender a qualifying offer for. The website is in Spanish, but I will include translated snippets.
The process leading to Rudy Fernandez to Real Madrid will end on Wednesday July 4th, the date chosen by the white team to announce the signing of guard.
The Mallorca forward has just been declared a free agent and is absolutely free from any connection with the Nuggets, who owned the franchise rights in the NBA.
As the newspaper Marca forward Rudy Fernandez will sign a three-year contract.
The official presentation as new player of Real Madrid will be made after the Olympics.
Pardon the rough translation, but the idea you will get, though. This shouldn’t be a surprise as he was slated to play with Real Madrid before the Denver Nuggets traded for him, and some coaxing from George Karl, he gave Denver a shot.
Rudy averaged 8.6 points, 2.4 assists, and 2.1 rebounds this season.
