I realize that trading Ricky Rubio right now would be a hasty, panicked decision, and now is not the time to do it, and that we need to see what we have in both Rubio and Flynn before we make any decisions on either of them. But something just tells me that eventually, Rubio will be the one to go. He'd bring back more value in a trade, and I don't think we can be too confident he'll be better than Flynn.
I posted this question as a comment on a different blog, but thought I'd repost it as its own blog, because I'm kind of curious how highly people on the site value him. If you were running the Timberwolves, what would a team need to offer you to get Rubio? At what point do you say, "I hate to give up Ricky, but we have to do this deal"?
If I were Kahn, it'd take good, promising young players to fill two of our three major needs: starting shooting guard, starting small forward, and shot-blocking backup 4/5, plus maybe a draft pick.
