Sergio Rodríguez Gómez (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈserxjo roˈðɾiɣeθ]; born June 12, 1986) is a Spanish professional basketball player for Real Madrid of the Spanish League.

Professional career[edit]

Spain[edit]

Prior to joining the Trail Blazers, Rodríguez was chosen to play for the 2004 World Junior Select team to play against the best high school players at the Nike Hoop Summit, located in the United States. Before joining the NBA, Rodríguez also played professional basketball at the senior club level for Estudiantes of the Spanish League, in which he played a final against FC Barcelona in the 2003–04 season, and won the ACB Rising Star Award for the 2004–05 season.

NBA[edit]

Rodríguez was selected with the 27th pick in the first round, by the Phoenix Suns, in the 2006 NBA Draft (and later that day traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for cash considerations). On July 20, 2006, it was announced that the Trail Blazers had negotiated a buyout with his Spanish League club Estudiantes, and signed him to an NBA rookie-scale contract.

On June 25, 2009, Rodríguez was traded, along with the 38th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, and cash considerations, to the Sacramento Kings for the 31st pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.[1]

On February 18, 2010, Rodríguez was traded to the New York Knicks, along with Tracy McGrady, in a 3-team trade deal.[2]

Back to Spain[edit]

On July 5, 2010, after spending four seasons in the NBA, Rodríguez signed a 3-year contract with the Euroleague club Real Madrid.[3] In July 2012, he signed a 2-year contract extension with Real Madrid, extending his contract through the 2014–15 season.[4] In May 2014, alongside with his teammate Rudy Fernández, he was named to the All-Euroleague First Team of the Euroleague.[5] Prior the Final 4, he has been named the Euroleague MVP of the season, averaging 14 points, 4.9 assists and 2 rebounds over 31 games, despite he hasn't started in any game.[6]

Spanish national team[edit]

Thought to be one of the best European prospects of his age, Rodríguez was named the MVP of the 2004 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship, which was held in Zaragoza, Spain, while playing with the Spanish national junior team. He led the host Spanish team to the tournament's gold medal. In the eight games of that tournament, he averaged 19 points per game, 4.6 rebounds per game, 8.5 assists per game, and 2.1 steals per game.

In August 2006, Rodríguez won the gold medal at the 2006 FIBA World Championship, while playing with the senior men's Spanish national team. He also won the silver medal with Spain's senior national team at the EuroBasket 2007. In 2012, he won a silver medal at the Summer Olympic Games in London.
