    According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, the Minnesota Timberwolves are offering up a trade for Ricky Rubio and are very much interesting in grabbing another top pick in the draft to select D’Angelo Russell.
    While many believe that the Mavericks and Kings are potential trade partners there are reports of the Knicks as a potential player for Rubio. The Knicks have the space to absorb his four-year, $55 million contract and he might be the what the Knicks are looking for to fit in to the triangle offense. While he is known for his assists one aspect he needs to work on is his outside shooting.

    Nevertheless, Rubio seems to be a perfect fit in Phil Jacksons’ triangle offense because of his incredible court vision, not to mention he would be a terrific facilitator for high-scoring forward Carmelo Anthony. At this point of his career, Rubio clearly doesn’t want to wait another 2 or 3 years to make a serious run at the title. So do the Knicks who are banking on a good offseason to get themselves back on a right track.

    The Knicks have set up workout dates for Mudiay, Winslow, Cauley-Stein and more likely to consider all their option. The Knicks might be looking for more than just a player for pick trade in the draft.

    Don't know why we would want to downgrade from Langston Galloway to Rubio.

    Corrected.

    Maybe Rubio would rather miss the playoffs playing in New York versus missing the playoffs playing in Minnesota. Can't blame him for that.

    Here it is, I am sure it's just BS, all these lame rumors make the rounds right now. But, it's still funny.

    Rubio, first pick for Hardaway, Calderon, mini Greek freak and fourth pick. Only deal I'd even consider involving Rubio.

    Rubio hitting open above the break 3s, entry passes to the post, and defending would be really good fit.

    Not sure why the Wolves want to bail. They've got all the scoring they could ever want, and he's the perfect guy to get everyone touches.

    You can pay someone half what Rubio makes to do what a triangle PG is asked to do. You can draft Mudiay if you want a PG who can make passes and not shoot for shit. Also TWolves probably sick of the fact he can't stay healthy for more than 7 mins at a time.

    Cap is going to be 96 million. 12 million not bad.

    I'd keep Rubio over Williams.

    Not when you can have someone better for less. Rubio is not good, you need to accept this.

    Why is anyone discussing Rubio? He's at best a servicible pg on one of the league's worst teams. We're in the middle of an great NBA Finals. How is that not being discussed?
