    In the west..whats the difference between 15 wins and 45 wins? You aren't going to be playing any playoff games either way so why not take your time and build the best team possible through the draft. Twolves in 2, 3 years will have 1 of the deepest teams in the league with Flynn/Love/Jefferson, Ellinginton 3 1st round picks in 2010, 2 in the lottery + the draft rights to 20, 21 year old Rubio which could get them much more in a trade than Foye and Miller could ever get.

    Who would argue.. Rubio's trade value in 2 years > Foye and Miller's trade value now.
    I guess that makes sense. Say MIN concedes the next 2 seasons, sort of like the Knicks plan for 2008 & 2009.... OK. So, they plan on "being ready to compete" come 2011. OK. Al Jefferson will only be turning 27 that season. SO, he's still young enough to be a stud.

    Al Jefferson is also signed through 2013.

    SO, the plan (I guess) would be to make a run at it all the 2012 & 2013 seasons? Knowing you're going to be lousy the next 2 years, and hoping it starts to come together at the start of 2011.

    I'm following you. For sure.

    SO, Flynn-Ellington-Love-Jefferson will get all this playing time together.... They'll sprinkle in some talent the next 2 drafts.... And then get to bring over Rubio in 2011, or just trad ehim somewhere for other pieces.

    HEY, Kahn was Walsh's understudy.... Walsh is employing that very same plan here in NY. Kahn also has more assets: He has a BIG MAN STUD in Jefferson, and a bunch of top draft picks, along with Rubio. Walsh is pretty much betting the farm he gets to sign Lebron, or two free agent studs.

    SO, in a sense, Kahn's logic is more sound. It's safer. Why not?

    The only problem is.... The Mayans said the world will end by the time the 2012 seaons begins. Too bad for MInny.

    Rubio bailing on Joventut doesn't mean he's coming to the NBA though

    He's probably going to a team like Real Madrid or FC Barcelona Baloncesto. Those teams have tons of money and they can afford to pay whatever buyout DKV Joventut makes them pay since they can't be subjected the the CBA of the NBA

    Default Rubio's Buy-Out

    Apparently DKV Joventut's contract with Rubio includes a buy-out for two more years. I assume there is a buy-out for as long as there is a contract. I also assume that DKV can prevent Rubio from playng with any other professional team during the term of the contract or require him or the other team to pay the buy out. However, if Rubio decides not to play with any team for the remainder of his contract term with DKV, then if he stops playing for DKV, he may not owe a buy-out. I do not know the exact terms of Rubio's contract, but I would not expect him to refuse to play for DKV if it meant that he would then automatically become liable to the team for $6M.

    Perhaps this is all negotiation.

    How about getting Spike Lee, or some other Knick fan for whom $6M is tip money, to buy DKV's rights to Rubio? Maybe we can start a collection among ourselves.

    The issue with the buyout is that the NBA CBA says that a team can only contribute 500,000 dollars to a player's buyout.

    However, if Rubio goes to play for a team like, say, Real Madrid, they're not subject to that rule, and they also have more than enough money to pay the buyout.

    Default Contract Rights

    It was my understanding that the Rubio contract rights were in the hands of the Spanish equivalent of the IRS. Anyone can buy contract rights though not an NBA team under the CBA. I was joking about Spike Lee, but he is not the team.
