He may not want to be in Minnesota.... but the Wolves do own his draft rights.
If he wants to play in the NBA, play against the best players in the world, and make the big-time money that comes with pro ball in the U.S..... then he'll have to do it through the Wolves.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm glad the Wolves are being patient with the asset that is Ricky Rubio. Its not like he'd come in and single-handedly make them a playoff team.
I say wait until the 2012/13 season, where Rubio can not only opt out of his Euro contract (that otherwise has a steep buyout that MUST come from Rubio himself), but he also isn't tied down by the Rookie-Wage-Scale of the NBA.
If he wants to be in the NBA, he can at least start his career in Minnesota, where he can establish REAL value, and garner something in return for the Wolves.
