Rudy Fernandez: Should the Chicago Bulls Trade For Him?

Funny how a little tweet erupts into a noisy buzz.

The latest rumor has the Chicago Bulls making a swap for Portland Trailblazers’ Rudy Fernandez, which could be done by Monday. This began with a tweet posted by Tommy Dee (TheKnicksBlog) saying:

“Source says a deal with Rudy Fernandez and the Bulls could be done by monday. James Johnson to portland but blaz want a draft pick as well.”

“Source?” Hmmm.

Yes, the Bulls did sign the Spurs’ Keith Bogans after striking out to Roger Mason Jr. Many might think this puts an end to the Rudy rumors.

But the deal with Bogans is believed to be two years and worth $2.5 million, meaning the Bulls still have enough cap space for Rudy, who has just one year and under $1.25 million left in his contract.

It appears as if no one will know for sure about Rudy and the Bulls until Monday, which still leaves reason to analyze this imminent (or not so imminent) trade.
