Spain shooting guard Rudy Fernandez said he was leaving local side DKV Joventut to join the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
"They have pushed hard for me to join them and have assured me I will be an important figure for them," Fernandez told a news conference.
"It wasn't an easy decision to take but it is the time for a new challenge after a fantastic year with Joventut."
Regardless of Fernandez's announcement, we won’t know for certain until at least July 1, which the earliest date that the Trail Blazers could sign him.
If you're one of those multi-lingual types, there's more information on Rudy's departure over at the ACB League website.
