Player Profiles: 'Sota TWolves

One of the most bizarre events in the weird world of the Wolves was watching them repeatedly dump the ball in to Milicic in the post as though he were any good at offense. He's not. Milicic has poor offensive instincts, turns it over too much, and doesn't draw fouls. In spite of all that, he had a higher usage rate than Luke Ridnour..... There's no way to sugarcoat this: Rubio's translated European stats are just awful, and have been for the past few years. I have a system that's been pretty reliable in terms of predicting first-year NBA performance for imports from the Euroleague, and what they project for Rubio offensively is ghastly: a 27.3 percent shooting mark and a 9.93 PER. It's not just his play in that league either; Rubio's play for Spain in international competition has been similarly discouraging. Much has been made of Rubio's poor jump shot, but a far bigger problem is that he's a lousy finisher. Many point guards have survived the former, but they all were very effective in the paint; Rubio, on the other hand, routinely blows layups. Oddly, he's a good foul shooter, which may offer some hope for his eventually redeeming his field goal percentage -- especially since he turned 21 in late October
