In his weekly column, "The Morning Tip," David Aldridge makes a brief statement about Rudy Fernandez, saying that he still expects him to be dealt to the Celtics or Bulls. There is a section where he gives his final rankings of the season (including off-season, where the Celtics finished second again to the Lakers) and there is this quick blurb regarding the Portland TrailBlazers:
11) Portland: Blazers stlll likely to deal Rudy Fernandez to either Celtics or Bulls.
That's it. There's no further assessment, timetable or predictions of players/draft picks/cash involved. With the acquisition of Von Wafer, the Celtics would still be wise to trade for Fernandez. Stay tuned.
