Storyline: Sergio Rodriguez Free Agency

30 rumors in this storyline

Rodriguez was presented to the press yesterday and the most interesting of his quotes come from his interview in the Spanish newspaper “El Mundo“. “El Chacho” explained why he didn’t returned to Madrid. As he said when asked about the Spanish fans who call him already “traitor”: “My relationship with Madrid has always been great. Being in a place for so many years, with everything I have achieved … I will always have great memories and I will be part of Madrid’s lore. I understand the circumstances. I had to expect something from the NBA that could convince me or attract me. When things did not go in the direction I would want, yes, there were talks with Madrid, but they had completed their roster and there was no open spot. They talk to my agent for the future, but they said that this summer they could not sign me. I do not understand why this is a betrayal, the best option to compete for all titles this year was CSKA Moscow”.
