Oaktown - Big Enough Market For Rubio??



I'm starting to think that Rubio will never play in Minny.  If Flynn becomes a very good PG, why would he want to try to wedge his way in after 2 years already knowing Flynn has turned out to be a very good pro?  I also think he wants to go to a larger market for endorsement possiblities.  So instead of waiting 2 years for the inevitable (trade), why not be creative?  We need shooters/scorers and athleticism.  Golden state has some intriguing possibilities.  Anthony Randolph, every improving ultra athletic big.  Curry, outstanding scoring combo guard.  Monta Ellis, ultra athletic scoring combo guard.  Possiblities:

Rubio for Ellis straight up

Lineup - Flynn / Ellis / Brew / Love / Jeff

Rubio & Love for Curry & Randolph and a 1st rounder

Lineup - Flynn / Curry / Brew / Randolph / Jeff

Rubio & Love for Ellis & Randolph and a 2nd rounder

Lineup - Flynn / Ellis / Brew / Randolph / Jeff

Not sure any of this would work cash-wise but I guess the point is, I don't think Rubio will ever play in Minny for the 2 reasons mentioned above.  Why wait to trade him?  Do it now and make the team better immediately.  This could be a playoff team with any of the lineups above.  And about trading KLove, I understand that he is a solid NBA player, but this team needs a big who can block shots, slash, get up and down the court, and have a vertical jump in the double digits :-).  Break it down fellas....
