Suns Agree To Three-Year Deal With Ricky Rubio

by June 30, 2019

The Phoenix Suns have found their point guard. Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that the team will sign veteran playmaker Ricky Rubio to a three-year deal worth $51 million.

Rubio had previously been linked to the Pacers but Indiana’s plans took a twist when they were able to agree to land Malcolm Brogdon in a sign-and-trade with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Rubio will provide a veteran presence on a young Suns roster and provide a solid mentor for first-round pick Ty Jerome. New Suns head coach Monty Williams will hope that the addition of Rubio can make life easier for Phoenix’s two building blocks: Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton.
