This is a rumor from last night, and with major outlets reporting that he's signed in Spain, it seems unlikely that a deal of this magnitude could happen successfully. Still, murmurs have persisted into today, so pretend for a moment.
A league source tells me there’s plenty of talk floating that the Knicks again are pushing hard to deal for Rubio — probably with an assist from agent Dan Fegan — and there’s word of a Rubio for restricted free agent David Lee, Nate Robinson and a No. 1 pick deal.
Remember when the Vikings traded 3 players and 8 draft picks to the Dallas Cowboys for the rights to Herschel Walker? That was the most lopsided trade in history. If the above trade scenario played out in reality, that would suddenly be up for debate.
Is Isaiah Thomas still running the Knicks? No? Then let's not go crazy.
