Rudy Fernandez's Agent, Not Knicks, Fueling Trade Rumors

Portland-area freelance writer Wendell Maxey, who also runs the Beyond the Beat blog, reports via Twitter that talk of the Knicks’ interest in Rudy Fernandez is coming from Andy Miller, Fernandez’s agent, and not from the Knicks themselves:

more rudy talk….two people close to the knicks say rudy/knicks rumors are pure hype from rudy’s agent andy miller. ny not interested.less than a minute ago via web


Maxey explains this rumormongering is Miller’s effort not to lose his job representing Fernandez:


word is, andy miller is fearing he’ll get the axe from rudy…..hence the need to keep rudy’s name involved in trade rumors.less than a minute ago via web


If Maxey is right—and there’s no reason to doubt him—then it’s probably best to dismiss any report saying New York is seriously still interested in the 25-year-old sharpshooter.
