I trade Rudy faster than you can whistle Dixie. Part of the problem lies with Rudy and the other half with Nate McMillan.

It's obvious that 1) aside from the 3 point shot, Rudy has a very difficult time creating his own shot. 2) the longer Rudy stays in the league, the more finesse oriented he becomes. He simply cannot handle the physical nature of the NBA.

Having said that, he would be MUCH more effective in a wide open offense like the Knicks or Golden State. His best chance at scoring is running the fast break and/or taking his man off a pick. Portland runs the slowest, most predictable offense in the league and Rudy's skills are wasted.

Blazers would be best off trading him for a young, rough and tumble power forward ala a Jason Thompson out of Sacramento.
