Magic Why aren't we going after Rudy Fernandez?

One would think he'd be a good fit.

Do we really need another SG?

DD/Barbosa/Weems/Belinelli

Unless you have DD/Weems play the 3.

Jack/Barbosa/Banks
Barbosa/Fernandez/Beli
DD/Weems/Kleiza
Amir/Kleiza/Davis
Bargnani/Amir/Anderson/Alabi

But do we want DD starting at SF?

Not gonna happen.

We have Marco.

When they are both 'on,' their game is very similar in my opinion.

Fernandez isn't a good fit here.... we have too many players capable of playing the SF and SG

Yeah, but he's a better sf than anything we have right now.
I'd trade Marco and miami's pick for Rudy.

We went after Chandler, Diaw, Barnes, Kleiza, Barbosa. Unfortunately we only came away with Kleiza and Barbosa.... FUCK YOU MJ!!!

But i think BC will make a trade or two, probably by the end of next week to round out the lineup.He isn't done.

Rudy isn't what we need. Good at first glance (explosive scorer), but way too inconsistent for my liking. Just look at his game log @ nba.com. Short example- his month of April, in terms of points: 3,0,0,11,9,9,8

How do you know whats been offered and for who? BC is apparently away until next week. We should see what will happen by the end of next week. We have some dead weight- Dorsey, Evans, Banks, Jones... and Jose to trade along with a TPE. There are holes that need to be filled.

When did Rudy Fernandez start playing for the magic?

I don't see why we would be interested in this trade. I mean a few weeks ago everyone was throwing pitchforks at jeffb and myself for thinking that Matt Barnes would be good (and he would). Rudy doesn't play stellar D and we have a platoon going on at the 2 and 3. IF anything, we should be targeting much better players at the 2 or 3, and a starting PG or PF or C.

I'd be fine with getting rid of Jose, get a starting caliber Centre (unlikely) and have a PG rotation of Jack, Barbosa, Beli, Banks. Then have a big rotation of PF-Bargs, Amir, Davis...C- Trade?, Amir, Anderson, Dorsey. And kepping the 2 & 3 spots as is.

Jack/Barbosa/Beli/Banks
DD/Barbosa/Beli
Kleiza/Weems/DD
Bargs/Amir/Davis
?/Amir/Anderson/Dorsey

Depending on the Center, i feel we'd be able to contend for a playoff spot, especially if DD/Weems can take a step forward, and we'd still have a TPE or part of it to spend during the season and 2 1st round draft picks next summer.

I have no idea how that magic logo popped up.

I think Fernandez is a low risk high reward thing . He has one more year on the rookie scale, and provided we don't give up any major assets, what do we have to lose?
