The legend of Rudy Fernandez never took off, playing a grand total of four years in the NBA. Fernandez came in with a lot of hype but could never really get anything going. He often complained about his playing time, and wasn’t very fond of living in the United States.
Fernandez signed a three-year deal to play with Real Madrid. With high expectations, Fernandez only averaged a touch over nine points per game. Last year he played for the Denver Nuggets.
According to the SportingNews:
Rudy Fernandez, after four years in the NBA, is returning to Real Madrid, the team in his native Spain for which he played during the lockout. Fernandez, 27, inked a three-year deal with Real Madrid.
