Default Ricky Rubio To Enter 2009 NBA Draft?

Quote:
-Ricky Rubio is back on our 2009 mock draft, after a four month stint where he was projected for 2010. Sources close to the situation indicate that Rubioís family is now in favor of him entering this year, and that will almost certainly be on the early-entry list when itís released on April 27th. His buyout still needs to be negotiated, which is easier said than done, but a final decision on whether to stay in likely wonít come until very close to the pull-out deadline, on June 19th. Unlike college players who are bound by the more restrictive NCAA rules, International players can enter the draft up to three times, which gives him plenty of wiggle room.

If Rubio enters I'd love to see which teams somewhat close to the Playoff Race in the East start to tank.(Yes, The Knicks)

we can tank all we want but there's no way we get lower then 8th (we're there now), warriors are too far behind for us to overtake them.
And we've been out of the playoffs for a while.

And lmao at tanking with 4 games left.

PS: I'm not sold on Rubio but he would add a lot of value to a really weak draft.

Me too. Most Spanish players in the league have lived up to the hype or were even better than expected. Him and Calderon were the floor generals of a very good national team. He's a savvy player and should have immediate impact

Would cream my pants if The Knicks landed Rubio.

Do you have any idea how exciting he would be under D'antoni. We're talking about the most fun team to watch in the history of basketball...Especially after 2010.

I don't think it's a sure fire thing that Rubio will be a star in the NBA, but I think with the Knicks and D'Antoni's system, he definitely would be. He is ideal for D'Antoni's style.

Don't forget about the Raptors. We like our Europeans.
