With visa, Rudy Fernandez ready to roll

Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Rudy Fernandez finally has resolved the visa issues that had him stranded in his home country of Spain where he was playing for Real Madrid during the lockout.

Fernandez announced a few hours ago his intention to leave for Dallas on Wednesday via his Twitter account: "Finally I have my visa, tomorrow I'll will be on my way to Dallas."

The Mavs acquired Fernandez in a draft-night trade. When he arrives he will find that an already deep position got even deeper with the Mavs' Monday signing of eight-time All-Star Vince Carter joining Jason Terry, plus developing youngsters Rodrigue Beaubois and Dominique Jones.
