(Big C) It looks like fans no longer have to worry anymore about what the Knicks plan on doing with point guard Serigo Rodriguez. According to Encectando.es, Sergio Rodriguez has made up his mind to return to Spain. Supposedly Rodriguez has reached a two year agreement to play for Real Madrid overseas.
With the Knicks wanting to sign two max players, and potentially having to pay two second round draft picks this off-season it is clear that Rodriguez was the odd man out. The writing is on the wall for Sergio that the Knicks are not willing to pay the extra bucks to give him an extension.
Sergio Rodriguez stated before that his first choice would be to remain a Knick or return to playing overseas. However, if the Knicks re-signed Rodriguez they would be spending around 2.8 million when the Knicks already have point guard Toney Douglas under contract.
Besides that it would hurt the Knicks’ chances of signing two max players. With Donnie Walsh in charge and sticking to his guns the days of over paying players is coming to an end.
During Sergio Rodriguez’s stay on the Knicks he averaged 4.3 points, and 2.9 assists in 13.2 minutes. He showed some promise by having some good games. However, that was not enough to demonstrate that he can run the show at the starting position.
