PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -The Portland Trail Blazers have reached an agreement to sign Spanish guard Rudy Fernandez.
Fernandez previously announced his intention to join the NBA, but the Trail Blazers could not announce his agreement to sign until Tuesday because of league rules.
Fernandez says in a statement that he can't wait to play alongside Blazers such as Brandon Roy, Greg Oden and LaMarcus Aldridge.
Fernandez has played the past seven seasons for DKV Joventut Badalona of the Spanish ACB League. The 6-foot-6 guard also plays for the Spanish national team.
Portland acquired Fernandez in a trade with Phoenix during the 2007 NBA draft.
