After two years of waiting, flamboyant Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio(notes) has agreed to join the Minnesota Timberwolves for the 2011-’12 season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday night.

Rubio reached a deal on Tuesday, sources said.

Rubio, the fifth pick in the 2009 NBA draft, has been playing for Regal Barcelona of the Spanish ACB League for the past two seasons. It’s likely that the deal won’t be announced until Rubio, 20, finishes his season in the Euroleague playoffs later this month.

Maybe the T'Wolves will sell out a game (home opener).

Ricky Rubio/Luke Ridnour/Jonny Flynn
Wes Johnson/Martell Webster/Wayne Ellington
Michael Beasley/Derrick Williams/Lazar Hayward
Kevin Love/Anthony Randolph/Anthony Tolliver
Darko Milicic/Nikola Pekovic

That's actually not a bad team. Rubio didn't have a great year in Europe though.

Rubio can make flashy passes, and has a great eye for passing lanes. But everything else about him sucks. His defense, his shooting, his turn overs, and general IQ are just trash.

People saw him ball for a couple of games at a young age and assumed, well if hes this good now with flashes of brilliance, in 4 years he will be THE BEST PG EVER!!!! Wrong. But I do see him as a Pistol Pete type passer, so hopefully he can have a few highlight plays.

Here's a perfect example of a 16 year old kid in Euro pro sports shining alittle and the league and world thinks he's the next Kidd
Watching his vid's .. I see a white guy that can't jump , and is a spot up shooter.
Only real game is that he is a floor general with a good pass.
Will he have the handles when he plays the NBA

100% hip /// 0 hop's

SO what do they do with their draft pick if Cavs take Williams?

Is it bad that he reminds me of bas telfair (in terms of what people said about them)?

Say what you will about Ricky, but you can't deny that he's always looked at least solid against Team USA. He even had some spectacular moments against them.

It's quite strange that this was announced in the same day that Barcelona win game 3 and go to ACB finals.

I'm just glad that he's going to NBA to prove all the haters that they were wrong, or prove that they were right.

Rookie of the Year!

Hey, with this draft class it might not be so far-fetched.
