"In United States is still speculating on the future of Ricky.The Spanish have already confirmed that his agent is already talking with some managers in the NBA. "You have to see what is best for me. Memphis has two, but that does not mean anything"

Wizards need to trade up from the 5th spot to get him.


Rubio
Arenas
Butler
Jamison
Haywood


If they stay healthy that could be nice playoff squad out East.

I'd think that he'll wind up being drafted by Sacramento, either at number four or through a trade. I can't really blame him for not wanting to go to Memphis; staying below the luxury tax is one thing, but I've never seen a team try to cut salary as much as Memphis does. The owners don't have to spend absurd amounts of money, but part of owning an NBA team is being willing to spend enough to put a quality product on the floor, and Memphis' ownership just does not seem willing to do that. It's a shame, too, because they've got a decent young core, and they're really just an elite prospect away from being a team on the rise.

That's cool. We already have Conley. I say we just draft him and trade his rights along with Jaric for a solid front court scorer.

Then maybe if Arenas has a good season they can trade him away again before he hurts himself again?

Yeah, NBA teams can only give 500k towards a players buy out, rest is by the player. His buy out this year is $6 million (or was it 8?) and next year, it rockets up to $11 million, meaning, Rubio, will have to pay, at least $5.5 million to come over and play for Memphis, or whoever drafts him

This post is trash, and you don't know Spanish or you are a liar.

He just said he wants a good future project, he don't say anything about not playing for Memphis.

Rubio haters, please stop lying.

Re: Ricky Rubio just said that he wont go to the nba if grizziles draft him
 
Ehhh...I dont know, i still dont like these young players walking into the league, and being able to hold teams up like this. Kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth all the way around.

Who the **** is Ricky Rubio?

18, never played a day of NBA ball in your life, and your trying to call the shots? I don't understand why stuff like this doesn't hurt a players stock. Only in the NBA...

FWIW I talked to a friend that plays pretty prominent D1 bball and he said in situations like that someone like Rubio would probably sign a big endorsement, and the endorsement company would cover the buyout

I dont get it either. Plus...I CAN GAURANTEE any team that trades away a lot of pieces to acquire Rubio, is going to be dissapointed for a good while.


The ONLY 18 year old, ive known to walk into the league, and make a serious impact, was Lebron James.

This kid is going to take a few years to develope. Hes young, skinny, and im willing to bet, will be a project for a minute.
