    Three year/ 51 million deal.

    I really wonder where D.Lo is going because the suns made a lot of sense

    Too much money for Rubio, imo, but it does make Booker that much better because it lessens his overall duties.

    Yikes, Rubio to the Suns, on paper he's a good fit but...

    Seems like it's between Lakers and Wolves for D.Lo.

    That's random. I will say one thing, the suns are consistent in wasting cap space. 15 mill for one half of a season of Ariza, and now this.

    The Suns are fighting the Knicks hard for worst franchise in the league. I think I give them the edge right now.

    You flat out can't build a good offense with Rubio as a main component. He does a ton of things extremely well, but packing the paint is just too damn easy. He shouldn't be more than a bench player, much less getting 17 million a year

    They have Booker, signed Jimmer and just spent 51M on Rubio? Why?

    It’s great news for the rest of the west. Keep being the Suns.

    If I was DLo I would join the Mavericks

    Join the two great white hopes and be set with a “Big 3” for the next decade. He’d be a good secondary to Luka

    Nah he isnt a good fit at all Booker is like Donovan Mitchell without defense if he didnt fit with Mitchell he aint gonna fit with Booker. And that's 17M a year for Wicky Wubio wtf. The crazy thing is they had a shooter making 12M and they traded him and a pick for cash and then they pay Rubio all this momey lmao

    All these crazy money getting thrown about thank god we locked House up at 3M a year.

    But he should fit with Ayton, the stretch 4 they drafted, i mean, Utah wasn't a good fit because they lacked shooting overall, especially at the 4, one thing Rubio is able to do is to run and pass, but you need to have 4 shooters around him, otherwise he's going to be a bigger hole. With Phoenix i think he fits better on paper, the problem is just that they suck, and i don't even know if Booker will be ok in let a guy like Rubio handle the ball, i predict a bad ending here lol.

    Maybe it could work. But D-Lo definitely needs the ball in his hands to be effective and we know they're better off with the ball in Luka's hands. But perhaps if they staggered their minutes like the Rockets do with Harden and CP3.

    I was talking about the guy they drafted with the 11th pick in this draft.
