    Such is the state of the world that most of us would rather see Real Madrid’s soccer team — with Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka — than their basketball team, but we’ll take what we can get. Real Madrid — which includes Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Rodriguez — will take on the Memphis Grizzlies in a…

  2. Report: Ronny Turiaf could play next season for Real Madrid

    Miami Heat's Turiaf dunks ball during Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami

    We were all a little surprised when Ronny Turiaf turned down his player option with the Heat and become a free agent. So where does he land? There are worse places to go than Madrid. European power Real Madrid is in the running, according to a report out of Spain (via Hoopshype): Turiaf likely is…

    For the past couple summers, Rudy Fernandez has had the Real Madrid card in his back pocket. Two years ago he tried to get Portland to release him so he could go play for the Spanish powerhouse, but that wasn’t happening. Instead they traded him to Denver. Fernandez played for Madrid during the lockout, but…

  4. Detroit second rounder Kyle Singler content with decision to stay overseas

    It’s rare for a player selected in the second round of the NBA to have much immediate career affirmation. After all, many second rounders never even make the final cut of an NBA roster, and those that do typically warm the bench and play out unguaranteed contracts as practice filler. Duke forward Kyle Singler appears…

    The NBA is currently in the process of moving the lockout into its rearview mirror, but even that development can’t bring home all of the league’s wayward sons. There are plenty of players who signed contracts overseas without an NBA out, and beyond that, apparently, a contingent that’s able to find better contract conditions overseas…

  6. Will Rudy Fernandez tell Dallas he wants to stay in Spain?

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:06 PM EST

    Rudy Fernandez

    UPDATE 12:06 pm: A source (ho sounds a whole lot like an agent) has denied that Rudy Fernandez is going to try and get out of his deal with the Mavs, according to Hoopshype. “Rudy Fernandez’s plan is to join the Mavericks next week and play with them this year,” the source said. “Asking for…

  7. Dirk is ready to start considering overseas options

    Marc Gasol of Spain looks on while being guarded by Nowitzki of Germany during their FIBA EuroBasket 2011 basketball game in Vilnius

    Dirk Nowitzki has been pretty optimistic, and also pretty quiet during the lockout. He’s going to get any offer he wants overseas, or at least as good a deal as he can reasonably expect, but he’s been holding out hope like the rest of us that the two sides will get their collective heads out…

  8. Report: Real Madrid going to make run at Marc Gasol

    Oct 26, 2011, 10:18 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    Real Madrid is stacking up quite a team. They have Rudy Fernandez and just added Serge Ibaka to a lineup that is already one of the best in Europe. And now they are going to make a run at Spain’s own Marc Gasol, too. Here is the report from Sportando. According to Marca, Real Madrid…

  9. Serge Ibaka signs to play with Real Madrid during lockout

    Serge Ibaka has been courted by a number of Spanish teams recently — he became a Spanish citizen (he played there before coming to the NBA) which means he doesn’t count against a team’s foreign player limit. That makes him highly prized. Ibaka has agreed to play for Real Madrid during the lockout, the team…

  10. Rudy Fernandez considers next season a “test” for Dallas

    Rudy Fernandez can pretty much walk around singing some Gomez — “And that’s OK, at least I’ve got options.” To start this season he will be playing for Real Madrid (unless the owners and players union solve the lockout in the next week… so Fernandez can go ahead buy those non-refundable tickets to Spain). When…

  11. Mavericks’ Rudy Fernandez signs deal with Real Madrid

    Spain's Rudy Fernandez drinks chapmpagne

    This should not come as a surprise to anybody. After Rudy Fernandez spent all of last summer trying to get Portland to release him so he could return to the Spanish League, he has used the lockout to return to the Spanish League. Probably should have seen that one coming. What we told you was…

  12. This is not a shock: Rudy Fernandez reportedly signs in Spain

    Rudy Fernandez was trying to find a way back to Spain last summer, his agent and he getting fined thanks to public demands, but with a couple years left on his NBA deal there was no path. The lockout has provided him one. There have been rumors for a while now that Fernandez was looking…

    Much to the disappointment of drunk women sitting courtside everywhere, Rudy Fernandez is thinking about jumping to Spain. Again. Fernandez, who spent last summer trying to get out of his NBA deal, spent part of this summer negotiating with Real Madrid. Then he said he promised to fulfill his NBA contract, which has one season…

  14. Report: Real Madrid rebuffs Kirilenko over money

    Jul 8, 2011, 2:35 PM EST

    Andrei Kirilenko

    All this talk of NBA players jumping to Europe… there’s a few reasons we’re skeptical here. And not just because we’re skeptical of everything. One big issue is money — few European teams can afford to approach even an average NBA salary. At the high end of the rumors, Deron Williams would make $5 million…

    Over the weekend we told you about Real Madrid’s effort to entice Rudy Fernandez to come play in Spain. Which was a pretty smart move by the team, to try and lure him over during the lockout and be able to keep him in his native Spain, a place he said he wanted to return…

    According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Sergio Rodriguez is leaving the Knicks to return to Europe. According to the report, he is very close to signing a three-year deal with the Spanish team for $1.5 million euros (about $1.8 million dollars) a year.

  19. Fernandez unhappy and considering a return to Spain

    Feb 24, 2010, 11:57 AM EST

    Rudy Fernandez had a tough time in Portland after a great rookie season. He’s battled injuries and all the adversity the team as a whole has faced, but his larger problem is that Kevin Pritchard stocked the cabinet too full. When you have a roster chock-full of guys who warrant full-time or at least significant…
