And there you have it. If a Spanish media outlet’s report this morning is accurate, Ricky Rubio has decided to stay in Spain for two years to finish his contract with DKV Joventut instead of trying to play in the NBA with the T-Wolves (or whatever team would have traded for him).
The Barcelona newspaper that is the source of the news, El Periodico, says that Rubio is going to drop is lawsuit against the club so that he can return and play form them this upcoming season.
As a basketball fan, this is definitely disappointing. I would have loved to see Rubio play in the L this year, whether it was with Minnesota, the Knicks, or any one of the other teams that has been trying to pry him from the Timberwolves.
