Ricky Rubio Open to Signing With Timberwolves Next Year?
To Wolves fans, Rubio must feel like that pony they kept asking for (and never got) as children … but, hey, his family says he might sign next season (reportedly). From the Pioneer Press: “A little birdie says the Timberwolves have received word from Ricky Rubio’s family that he’s open to signing with them for next season — if there is a season. The NBA’s labor agreement expires June 30, and that’s an issue for Rubio, the Wolves’ 2009 first-round draft pick who could continue playing for FC Barcelona in Spain if there is an NBA lockout. The 6-foot-4 point guard is averaging 5.5 points and 4.0 assists in 45 games this season.”
