Ricky Rubio is Taking DKV Joventut to Court

by June 10, 2009

Things are headed to the legal arena in the Rubio case: “The guard has been trying to get out of his contract with Spanish league team DKV Joventut but has met resistance. On Tuesday, according to the Spanish news agency EFE, Rubio sued the team after learning that it had transferred the rights to his buyout to Hacienda, the Spanish version of the Internal Revenue Service. The rights were sold to satisfy a debt Joventut had with Hacienda. Leopoldo Hinjos, Rubio’s lawyer, claims that the team did not inform his client that his rights were about to be ceded to a third party. The team says that representatives of Hacienda went to Joventut’s offices and demanded a guarantee to cover the outstanding debt.”
