    Default Ricky Rubio has reached an agreement with Minnesota to join the Timberwolves

    WojYahooNBA Adrian Wojnarowski
    Ricky Rubio has reached an agreement with Minnesota to join the Timberwolves next season, league sources tell Y!


    WojYahooNBA Adrian Wojnarowski
    There was a Tuesday deadline to sign under rookie scale of current CBA, and no announcement's expected until after Rubio's Euro playoffs end




    It's unclear whether Rubio signed agreement on Tuesday, or merely promised to exercise his Spanish buyout on July 1 and then sign with Minny



    Nevertheless, RIcky Rubio has committed to joining the NBA and playing for Minnesota in the 2011-'12 season, sources tell Y!

    Wow and they get him on the rookie scale that greats news for Twolves fans. I am surprised he wouldnt of waited one more year and sign for more money.

    Twolves shouldn't draft a PG now. My guess is they go big, perhaps Kanter

    If he is anywhere near as good as he's been hyped to be, that is awesome for Minnesota.

    I don't think they were going pg anyway i mean they already have like 4 of them. I still think they try to trade back to around 8th and draft Bismack there.

    If he's a bust, Minnesota is in trouble. All these lottery picks, and really on Kevin Love is panning out so far. Yeah they're still young.. just saying

    Do they have a trade in place maybe?

    Can he be traded on draft night?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    he could be traded on draft night either way Minny still held his rights.

    He can still be traded up until draft night as well, I believe. The fact that they signed him as opposed to just keeping his rights and trading that during the draft/offseason makes me think that they intend to keep him, but it could really just boil down to the fact that Rubio and his agent wanted him to sign under the current rookie scale.

    Wouldn't it be something , if the reason why he decided to come next season was because of a promised trade to Indiana to play for his idol Larry Bird? Maybe even a call from him ..lol I kid I kid.. but anything short of a call from Bird himself , I don't see Rubio losing all that money.. only being one more year till he fulfills his obligations overseas.


    As long as Kahn has been serenading Rubio with no success, why all of a sudden now? AND with losing all that money from Euroleague, as well as coming in on a rookie scale contract?

    seems kinda fishy to me if he really is gonna be a TWolf

    If not, it looks like I will be watching alot of TWolves games now ...

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    hey now the Clippers and T wolves had some epic duels last year. Beasley's game winner was something else.

    http://youtu.be/0hRc_R4Xaow

    He looked like a true elite player that game he had 30+ and showed up in winning time. The Twolves are not as bad as it sounds to watched I watched them quite a bit. What made them unbearable was when JFlynn was in at pg They will probably still suck but i will probably watch them double the amount next year.

    Insert obligatory "Having multiple PGs on the roster hasn't stopped Kahn from drafting one" comment here.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    So how's his contract work? Does he get the value for the 5th slot from the 09 draft?

    yes and if he would have waited one more year he would have been able to sign for whatever they would agree upon not the rookie scale. That is kind of surprising in my opinion i would have waited 1 more year if I was him to make more $.

    But who knows what contracts will look like then?

    This was a good business move on both sides.

    Probably bittersweet for Sota fans. They finally get Rubio, but Kahn just got that much more rope.

    I've still yet to understand how people here are so excited about him. Any time a draft prospect is brought up, someone inevitably posts a highlight video or "mixtape" of that player (which is essentially all 95% of the posters here have seen of Rubio) and then everyone says "well it's only a highlight reel and blah blah blah". I'll wait until Rubio does something in the NBA to claim to be even remotely excited about him, especially considering he plays for a team I couldn't possibly care less about.
