Rudy Fernandez Possibly a Raptor?

ESPN.com's Chad Ford is reporting that the Raptors are in serious talks with the Portland Trailblazers about sending the 13th overall pick to the Blazers in exchange for Rudy Fernandez and the 22nd pick. We'll keep following this story as it develops but if Toronto can do it, (it sounds like Portland is holding out as of now) I say pull the trigger. Yes, I'm a big Paul George fan but the reality is that he could be the next Gerald Green. Rudy is a proven commodity and while not the answer, I'd argue is a better fit at the 3 than Hedo. (And as an aside, this should signal the end of the Ottoman empire.) If Toronto can come out of this draft with a player of Fernandez's caliber AND a later first-round pick (which could be used on an upside player like Sanders, Alabi or Ebanks), then to me this is a big success.
