I loved Rubio when he was here, like most everyone. But now to tell the truth it’s fine to have him back but I’m more interested in seeing what they do with the extra late first rounder, if the report is true.


I agree. And with 25, 28, 33... i expect a tradeup of some sort. We don't have that many roster spots open

Is the Rubio deal somewhat official? I'm only watching ESPN draft and haven't heard a word yet.

Everyone has said that Edwards needs a mentor, and there was literally no one on the team that could take that role before Rubio.

I remember KAT being a Rubio fan. That can't hurt.

Devin Booker was far more successful last season when he shared the floor with Ricky Rubio, per CleaningTheGlass.

Booker + Rubio both on: +6.3 net rating (O 117.4, D 111.1)
Booker on, Rubio off: -6.3 net rating (O 111.4, D 117.7)

Rubio and D'Angelo Russell will share the floor

Apparently tonight is the first time in history nobody from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, or North Carolina went in the lottery.

Leandro Bolmaro
6'7", 182 lbs. Argentina

Pre-Draft Analysis

Strengths
- Good size at 6-foot-7 for someone who can play point guard.
- Creative ball handler who plays at different speeds and shows excellent passing ability off a live dribble. Manipulates defenses with pace, skill and feel. Uses floaters and touch shots to finish creatively around the basket.
- Plays with energy defensively. Attentive and aware both on and off the ball. Quick feet sliding and containing in small spaces. Gets into passing lanes.

Improvement areas
- Lacks a degree of strength and explosiveness athletically. Can't always beat better defenders from a standstill. Has struggled to put the ball in the basket at times against higher-level competition.
- Career 30% 3-point shooter on more than 300 attempts and a 68% free throw shooter. Just how good of a shooter can he become? Low, clunky release limits him at times against better defenders.
- Hasn't been seen nearly as much as other international players in this draft. Played only 388 minutes this season, rotating between Barcelona's first and second teams.

Projected role: Big two-way playmaker

The Ringer:

Impeccable playmaking skills and instincts give him a foundation for success, but his jumper will determine his upside.

SHADES OF: Joe Ingles, Evan Turner

PLUSES
He can make every pass in the book using either hand. He sees passing lanes that few others can, and makes the reads so quickly that it’s as if he’s two steps ahead.
Slick ball handler who gets where he wants on the floor with his change-of-pace moves and tempo despite a lack of elite athleticism.
Good touch on floaters, runners, and layups, which bodes well long term for his subpar jump shot.
Intelligent off-ball player who cuts and relocates like a veteran.
High-effort defender who beats opponents to spots and does a great job of fighting over screens.
Alert team defender who rotates well, digs down in the post, and provides overall cohesion.

MINUSES
He needs to improve his off-hand to compensate for the fact that he’s a below-the-rim finisher who struggles against length.
Without a reliable jumper, most of his strengths are moot. He shot 28 percent from 3 and 66 percent from the line in three professional seasons overseas. There are some quirks in his jumper, especially in his wrist, that need to be ironed out.
Less effective as a shot creator when defended by smaller players who get underneath him; he’ll need to make advancements to survive.

Is Rick Spielman consulting with the Wolves?

Sounds like a young Rubio?

Probably a stash candidate for a year or two since we still have another 1st round pick to make.
