I'd love to sign this kid as a FA this year. I believe he's eligible to come back to the states this offseason. 25+ teams will go after this PG with guns blazing. The city of New York & what we stand for is our key advantage. MSG is legendary. I'm confident that Rubio will join Amare & Melo in NY. I truly believe he's the next coming of D.Rose. He'll take the league by storm under D'Antoni's system. Excellent court vision, outstanding passing ability & would become a dream come true for MDA, our players, the fans & most importantly NY's offensive style of play. I love Paul but I'd appreciate Ricky in a NY minute. Chris Paul should be great for a whie, but Rubio is who I want moving forward. D-Will, Rose & CP3 are the elite class at the PG position, obviously, but it shouldn't take long before Ricky ranks right up there with the best.
Question- what type of contract will he demand as a free agent on the open market? Since he's not an NBA proven star, I hope it's at least 7 million away from a MAX. Thoughts?
