Ricky Rubio plans to leave his former Spanish team, Joventut. This does not necessarily mean he will play in the NBA though. According to ESPN.com (finger point to Virgil) Real Madrid and Barcelona have expressed an interest in the young point guard who many have inaccurately compared to Pistol Pete Maravich. Rubio has stated “I want to play in a winning team, on a team that can achieve many things.” That doesn’t exactly sound like the T-Wolves, but as we know, David Khan is in Spain right now trying to aid a buy-out. He wouldn’t be doing so if he didn’t think he could bring Rubio state-side.
Virgil and Ewing33 asked in the comments of my last post whether this means Flynn might now be available, and Jon said, maybe, but is it worth it?
I think it depends. Would you rather have Flynn (who Walsh didn’t seem too enamored with just prior to the draft), or would you rather have Chandler and Sessions (assuming the Knicks could land him). I’m firmly in favor of the later.
