Rudy 'infuriated'? Not so fast...

Last night, Jason Quick continued to do work with his report that both Kevin Pritchard and Nate McMillan were surprised to hear about Rudy Fernandez alledged ‘fury’. Here are quotes from Quick’s piece:

“I just spoke with Rudy two days ago, to see how he was doing, and he said he was doing fine and that he was happy,” McMillan said. “I talked to him about our moves, and how we did in the draft, and why we did what we did in the draft and he was fine with it. We talked about Sergio (Rodriguez) and he was OK with everything we’ve done.”

Pritchard said he “had a good conversation” with Fernandez on Monday.

“We joked around,” Pritchard said. “And we had a fantastic exit interview. He talked about how excited he was to come back.”

“Pritchard also noted that Casey Holdahl from is in Spain following Fernandez. Holdahl has also said that Fernandez has been in nothing but good spirits all week.”

I don’t know about you all, but I can officially put this ‘infuriated’ Rudy thing to bed. One thing this reminds me is that during the off-season rumors are all over the place. So from here on out I’ll be taking Jay-Z’s advice and believe half of what I see and none of what I hear.

    At least it ended quickly (if it ever really began).

    I just watched Rudy on the news in Spain, I’m a Detroiter who’s been living in Madrid for 8 years, and although not infuriated he did say that the move wasn’t good from a personal standpoint and that he would entertain other offers. It’s for real.

    garciaumich seems to be better informed than Jason Quick on this one, this is not going away anytime soon. I am not sure that infuriated was the right word either but he is not a happy camper.
