    Default Official Rubio Rumormill

    Ok, over the next week or so it's just going to be rumor central on this guy. We all know he doesn't really want to play in Minny. His agent doesn't want it too.

    Let's keep this thread for any developments on Ricky Rubio since it seems the only two likely destinations right now are Spain or New York.

    I'll keep the thread updated with the latest info as it comes in.

    The Rumors so far (most recent on top):

    Thursday 2/7

    According to a report from El Periodico, Ricky Rubio has decided not to come over to the United States to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves and will remain with DKV Joventut for the next two seasons.

    * The Knicks are working hard to cut a deal with the Timberwolves to acquire guard Ricky Rubio, a Western Conference said.

    One league GM said a deal “isn’t 100 percent,” but likely.

    The T’wolves took Rubio fifth followed by Syracuse guard Jonny Flynn.

    * Timberwolves officials are thus far resisting the advances of the Knicks and the wishes of the player’s agent and insisting that Rubio will stay in Minnesota.

    Oh and btw, to all the people saying we can't trade Lee or Nate or w/e to the Wolves for Rubio, do you guys even remember the trades the Wolves made with some of their draft picks?

    Ray Allen for Stephon Marbury...

    OJ Mayo for Kevin Love...

    Brandon Roy for Randy Foye...

    We could probably offer them Jared Jefferies and a dildo in the ass and they would take it!

    That drafted four point guards =P...

    Just kidding, their plan isn't half bad. You have four picks in a weak draft, draft players other reams want and get there future picks hopefully in a deeper draft.

    I think Kahn is an idiot. If you wanna take Rubio and gamble he is going to stay in Minni fine...after sending your sharpshooters away in a trade for the pick how do you not draft Curry to have a solid backcourt with AJ being a beast in the post?

    He has to be planning a trade...it's crazy to think they actually want Rubio and Flynn playing together.

    As of now, it looks like Rubio is not coming to the Knicks.

    Nothing In The Works To Deal Rubio To New York

    Earlier indications were that the Knicks and Wolves were discussing a trade to send Ricky Rubio to the Knicks.

    But Alan Hahn reports that "a source with knowledge of the Knicks' thinking said there was nothing in the works" with the Wolves regarding Rubio.

    Kahn: Wolves Can Wait For Rubio

    Timberwolves president David Kahn admitted on Thursday night that the team isn't in full control of Ricky Rubio's buy out situation.

    "Nobody here tonight, myself especially, will be banging his fist on the table, saying, 'He must be here!' It's a very complicated matter," Kahn said Thursday night. "We need to understand that we're not in control of the situation vis a vis the buyout. ... I think it's too early to worry about that. But I said this to the agent tonight: If any team in this league can afford to wait a year, dare I say two, it's us. Y'know? It's us."

    There were rumors on Draft Night that Rubio might not buy his way out of his contract with DKV Joventut and join Minnesota for this coming season.

    Kahn downplayed the belief that Rubio's new revelation had something to do with him not wanting to playing for the Timberwolves.

    "I don't think it's a destination problem," Kahn said. "I believe he would have been more than happy to play in Oklahoma City. And with all due respect to Oklahoma City ..."

    Obviously the last part is a joke, but still it's not unlikely that we can deal for Rubio.

    They lack punch at the 2 and 3 spots. We have Nate, Chandler, Hughes (expiring). There is a deal to be done.
