Rubio is an NBA draft pick. So you have no point with that post.

I won't say he's overrated, underrated, or anything really, but I would like to see him play in the league he signed up for last April, sometime soon. Even if he's a bench player at first, I just want to see him tough it out in the league like any other young rookie. I'm all for a diverse, multi-cultural, group of players in the NBA. The Spurs held the rights to Luis Scola for like 5 years, and it eventually wore on both parties to point where SA traded him for merely roster flexibility. It's a different situation, surely, but man it's sort of a big tease to draft a highly regarded overseas player and not see him touch an NBA floor for YEARS.

Ricky Rubio won't be coming to the NBA until 2011 at the earliest, sources told ESPN.com Monday.

Rubio and the Minnesota Timberwolves were informed late Monday night in Spain that Rubio's former club, DKV Joventut, had agreed to trade his rights to FC Barcelona.


Rubio
Rubio will be able to get out of his Barcelona contract in the summer of 2011, when the fifth pick of last June's draft will be free to join Minnesota.

So what, if Flynn turns out to be a real gamer, is the #5 pick Rubio just trade bait?... As much as Kahn has postured and said he doesn't mind this, I don't really see Rubio playing for the TWolves down the road. I could be wrong, of course, but one or two more lottery-bound seasons and who knows what direction that franchise takes.

What a waste of a draft pick. You trading away a servicable Randy Foye for nothing. Not to mention you could have picked Brandon Jennings or Stephen Curr.y It is the Twolves management so it is expected.

I'm sure this makes Al Jefferson happy. Good to know they won't be wasting his prime or anything.....

Jared Jeffries for Ricky Rubio....I think that's fair.

But to be honest, Kahn doesn't care. He knows he always has a valuable trade chip in Rubio's rights, especially to New York or L.A.......In the meantime, TWolves will simply suck and get more high draft picks....e.g. Oklahoma Thunder.
