Where In The World Is Ricky Rubio?

Ricky Rubio

It’s more like…where will he end up?

After being drafted 5th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves, reports have now surfaced that Ricky Rubio may stay in Spain for another year, maybe two! Now he has offers from a Turkish club and Real Madrid; what the hell happened?

It sounds to me like young Ricky may be hiding out in order to hopefully force a trade to a different team, a team that he would prefer. I see it like this:

  • Minnesota drafted Rubio with the fifth pick and then Johnny Flynn with the sixth pick, meaning two point guards in a row. Because I don’t believe that the T’Wolves’ GM is the Matt Millen of the NBA, I have to think that the T’Wolves were thinking of moving at least one of their draft picks. As much as they would like to keep Rubio, I think they may ship him to try and get what they can. Rubio is a pretty hot commodity at this point, especially to Donnie Walsh and the New York Knicks. And I would go out on a limb to say that if Rubio was traded to the Knicks, he wouldn’t be returning to Spain to even pack his bags. Although I can’t think of a trade deal that may take place between the Knicks and the T’Wolves, I would expect to see Rubio in orange and blue before the season starts.
