I was just watching the dailydime on espn.com and they stated that several Euro ball clubs are offering Rubio 4 year deals at like 3-4 mil plus the buyout.
At first you may think this is terrible news since Rubio would be a fool not to take that offer. Here is the catch! Minnesota only owns his draft rights for 4 years and then they lose him. If they fear that he is going to bolt to Europe and sign a 4 year deal they will have to make a trade or lose him for nothing.
Everything I have read suggests Rubio would play for the Knicks and make less salary since he would make up for that with endorcement deals playing in the biggest media market in the world.
At this point it is a game of chicken with Kahn and Kahn will blink first or else lose Rubio for nothing along with his job. The trick is to offer enough to Kahn for him to save face and his job for making a poor draft decsion.
