Default Re: Ricky Rubio officially traded to Barcelona

Let's remember in two years, Rubio is only going to be 20 years old. Many guys enter the league at 21 or 22, so is he really losing alot. Why can't TWolves be patient? They will suck either way. In 2 years, they'll have a few more top draft picks, Rubio will be older and more NBA ready, and then they'll still have Ricky for at least 4 years....what's the hurry?

NOW, that being said, do you think Kahn would do a SnT David Lee and future #1 for Rubio's rights? I doubt it, but if I'm Walsh, I make that offer.....Rubio would definitely jump ship to New York in two years.....Minnesota? Who knows......

Default Ricky Rubio

Why did he even enter the draft if he was just gonna be a huge B**** about it and stay in Europe? I am sick of hearing about all these europeans with so much "potential" but when they get drafted by a small market they stay in europe or b**** until they get a trade. half of them aren't even good and dont deserve the right to talk trade.

Dirk, you will be the only european player i ever truly respect.

Default Rubio not in Barcelona just yet.

Theres been reports all night and today that the Knicks are making one last push to get Ricky Rubio. The main deal going around is....

Timberwolves Receive
David Lee
Nate Robinson
1rst round draft pick

Knicks Receive
Ricky Rubio
Other players to fill up the cap space such as Brian Cardinal.

I think this would be stupid for the Knicks and im a Knick fan that wants Rubio.

Thats way to much for this unproven guy.

Im shocked T-Wolves fans are mad about this. Were giving you everything weve got pretty much for a drama queen who is again unproven and doesnt want to play for you guys.

1. Knicks arent going to sign lee to a 10m$ contract and trade him. It will be way cheeper.

2. Speculation says Lee would be moved to get more pieces.

It still doesn't solve the issue of Rubio not having enough money for the buyout. The Knicks have a limit on how much they can pay like everyone else.

Yes but New York has a wayyy bigger market. His buy out could be worked out easily with endorsments from Nike and Gillete, instead of with snow blower machine companies.
