The Wolves‘ GM doesn’t worry too much about media reports saying otherwise, because according to him, Ricky Rubio will soon live and work in Minnesota. The Star Tribune reports: “Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn called a New York Times report this week on Ricky Rubio ‘much ado about nothing’ and ‘not worthy of a response.’ The report quoted an unnamed source close to Rubio asking why the Spanish guard would ever play in Minnesota and stating the Wolves draft pick wants to play for Boston, New York or Miami when he decides to come to the NBA. Kahn said he remains ‘absolutely’ certain Rubio will join the Wolves next season after a buyout with his Regal Barcelona team becomes affordable.”
