In an email exchange and multiple telephone conversations with Blazersedge -- the first conducted last Thursday, a follow-up conducted on Wednesday -- Ziegler went into further detail about his relationship with the Blazers, he passed along portions of the biomechanical testing results for Oden, Roy and former Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez, and he offered an explanation for why he decided to go public with his account. In Jan. 2012, as noted by Corvid, Ziegler was arrested in Arizona along with two co-defendants on charges of the sale of unregistered securities and financial fraud. Last week, Ziegler retained Ashley Adams of AZWhiteCollarCrime.com.

Nuggets swingman Rudy Fernandez is headed back to Spain today to start rehabilitation on his back. He had back surgery on March 29 after spending much of the season trying to play through the pain. According to Fernandez, rehabilitation time should take 10 weeks. He'll work with doctors and trainers associated with Spain's national basketball team. He played many games this season while battling through a lower back strain, including pain that he called "probably the worst feeling I feel in my life. I was in pain when I slept, everything." Now, after surgery, he said things have improved. "Right now I don't have the pain, so I'm feeling better," Fernandez said. "And right now I'm so happy that the surgery was good. I know the doctors were very happy with the procedure." Denver Post
