    Brian Windhorst just said on ESPN that the Timberwolves are trying to get into the middle of the pack in the draft to get Tyus Jones... Someone on Twitter just said don't be surprised to hear Rubio to Rockets. Lmfao Basketballholic would be relentless if that happened. I hope it doesn't tho. I hate Rubio. Don't think he's good.

    That will make me mad. Nothing against Rubio, he is not a good fit for Houston.
    Let them take Tyus Jones. The Rockets will probably go for an "upside" pick, if they they think Tyus's upside is low.

    Acquiring Rubio kind of runs counter-intuitive to what they are trying to do if you buy they whole "going after a 3rd star (LMA/Love) business" which I do.

    I think folks are piecing together that-

    A. The Rockets are talking to every team including Minnesota
    B. The Rockets LOVED Rubio at the draft and openly were willing to sell their team to draft him.

    The fact is, if the Rockets were to trade for Rubio, that's pretty much it. You have your cap held up with Howard, Harden, Ariza, Rubio. You have 59 million wrapped up in those 4 players alone with little flexibly in a S&T to acquire anyone else.

    I just really don't see the Rockets being happy with THIS being their core moving forward, but we will see.

    Only way I'd be happy with Rubio is if the 1st pick came with him..

    Lots of Rockets related talk from the Wolves beat reporter, I'll just dump it all here in one place:

    I am thinking ahead and about how to get rid of him before he even wore Rockets red.

    I like Rubio, disruptive defender and a willing passer. He isn't a shooter so he's not the ideal fit, but a good coach will make it work.
