    Can someone answer this for me. Why would we want Rubio if he's going back to Europe for a year? We're in WIN NOW mode and Rubio would not be able to help NOW but ONLY in the future.

    Trust me, if he lands in Houston, he'll be here next year. Big market + Nice weather are good enough to please RR.

    I understand that we're in a win now mode but Yao's left foot just put that on pause.

    Because unless you are able to get that one piece that puts you over the top, you keep your options open for perhaps making that window go a bit longer with players who may or may not be here right now.

    I already posted this in the thread about Ricky Rubio. Thought it was interesting to make another thread about it.

    He only said that because he doesn't want to play in Minnesota. He would fit right in in our city. I have been seeing a lot of tape on him and he looks very impressive.

    Only problem with getting Rubio is we'd probably have to give up most of our major pieces (T-mac, Brooks, Landry) to get it done, and that leaves us with gaping holes at backup center and shooting guard. I imagine we'd get something else too, but I hope we don't go selling the farm for a point guard. That's fine if we're rebuilding but we're not...we need a squad that can make another run next year.

    Maybe he's going back to Europe b/c he really doens't want to play for the Wolves. It just doesn't make sense to enter the draft at a lottery position and then turn around and stay in Europe.

    Because Houston is better than Minnesota. Basketball related, and otherwise...

    Similar scenario happened with this guy named Steve Francis ten years ago. Just saying...

    HAHAHA! Minny would be stupid to do this.

    They could get so many better offers.

    More than likely any trade would involve at least a 3rd team.

    I don't expect there is a trade before the summer league. The twolves need to see how Flynn plays in SL. I hope one of our picks can perform well. They need a good wing player. In that case, we can trade Brooks (or Lowry) + a wing player + a futue 1st round pick for Rubio.
