Rick Rubio Will Play For Minnesota Timberwolves In 2011-2012 Season, According To Report

Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Ricky Rubio and the Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement that will bring Rubio to Minnesota in the 2011-2012 season.

Rubio was drafted by the T'Wolves in 2009 with the fifth pick in the NBA draft but Rubio has spent the past two seasons playing professionally in Spain.

According to Wojnarowski,some details still need to be explained.

There was a Tuesday deadline to sign under rookie scale of current CBA, and no announcement's expected until after Rubio's Euro playoffs end.

It's unclear whether Rubio signed agreement on Tuesday, or merely promised to exercise his Spanish buyout on July 1 and then sign with Minny.

For a while, it looked like Minnesota was destined to spend another season watching Rubio from afar while despising the other point guard taken in 2009, Jonny Flynn. Now, it seems as though they'll finally have the chance to see if Ricky was worth all that hype, all that concern and what's certain to be all that money.
