Wolves Updates 6/5



Rubio won't play in NBA for at least another year and more

 

From Paul Logothetis/Associated Press:

In an interview with the Associated Press, the highly rated prospect said he won't leave Spanish club Barcelona before his NBA opt-out clause comes up after next season. The Timberwolves remain his team of choice, as long as they make improvements following a season where they finished 15-67, the second-worst record in the league.

If not, the Spaniard may want to make his NBA debut elsewhere.

"I'm open to everything," Rubio said courtside from Barcelona's Palau Blaugrana stadium. "You never know when all of this finishes if it will be with this team."

Although Rubio expects improvements from the team that took him with the fifth choice in last year's draft, he was ready to stand by a club that has called him the only "untouchable" player on its roster — even if he's not even on that yet.

 

 

From Phil Miller/Star Tribune:

Ricky Rubio was impressed with Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis when they met for the first time last week, and the 19-year-old point guard told friends that "he can envision playing for Kurt."

That's what Wolves Vice President David Kahn said on Friday after returning from a weeklong scouting trip to Europe.

Rubio's arrival won't happen for at least another year, but he told the Associated Press in Barcelona, Spain, that he has warmed to the notion of playing in Minnesota: "They have the best possibility because they hold my rights, and they've shown me how much they want me," he said. "And for that, I have to be thankful toward them."

 

From Jonathan Givony/Draft Express twitter account:

Anthony Randolph for Kevin Love? Heard some chatter about that from a pretty good source. Makes sense for both teams. Need to dig a bit more

 

From Adam Lauridsen/Mercury News: Randolph to Minnesota? No Thanks
