First of all, Rubio is probably never going back to Europe. Too much **** has happened in front of the media regarding the buyout for him to stay there.
Also, he's earning like $100,000 per year in Europe. The earlier he signs a contract for the NBA, the faster he would earn big bucks.
Also, he can't sign for any other team even if he did come back to Europe. We would have to trade him in order to sign with another team. Basically if he refuses to sign with the Grizz, he can't play in the league.
