Minnesota’s once puzzling selection of back-to-back point guards is starting to make sense. News today that Ricky Rubio might spend another season or two in Spain.
The Spanish sports site Marca.com is reporting Rubio plans to talk to Minnesota’s brass about his future, possibly to request a trade to a bigger market – i.e. New York.
Minnesota will still get a backcourt out of the draft even if it loses Rubio, but has to be disappointed in what is unfolding. The T-Wolves wanted to make a big splash in the draft – this is more of a small patter.
I’ve had just about enough of this kid and his family already. He had better worth all of this hype.
