Sergio Rodriguez signs deal with Real Madrid

Jul 2, 2010, 12:39 PM EDT

It’s official, Sergio Rodriguez is returning to Spain,

He has signed a deal with Real Madrid, if you can believe the official Real Madrid Web site. We tend to. This is a three-year deal, according to the site.

No shock here, Rodriguez has been unhappy and wanted to return across Atlantic and had been rumored for this move for a while. Rodriguez had been in the Spanish ABC league but came to America in 2006 and spent three years in Portland. The Knicks were not going to miss him that much, he was sharing space with Toney Douglas and the Knicks are high on Douglas.

Douglas may have to be the man — right now he is the Knicks point guard. And there are not a lot of good options out there on the free agent market. I suppose they were counting on LeBron to play that role, too.

    Well, it’s a done deal then.
    Not surprising, since these rumors had been floating around for a while, and I believe he even mentioned it as a possibility a few times. I am sad for a Spanish player to leave the NBA. I am still recovering from what happened with Juan Carlos Navarro leaving the Grizzlies but I guess this means I we all have more reasons to pay more attention to ACB games now.
    Good luck to Sergio. ¬°Suerte, chaval, y a por todas en el Madrid!
