Rubio Signed, But Will He Play Here?

The Minnesota Timberwolves signed Spanish teen Ricky Rubio, but some say his game has regressed and he may be a bust in the NBA and the team may trade him to a New York franchise, which is where his family really wants him to play. Most games he seems to play well under full time minutes and scores under 10 pts a game in the lesser competition of pro European basketball.

From the brief clips I've seen of him, he looks like a fast, slashing, penetrating ball handler and a slick passer. Doesn't appear to be an impressively accurate outside shooter, a must for a guard, and the behind-the-back dribbling that he often uses looks like he could draw a lot of calls for traveling or palming the ball.

Wolves might just bite the bullet and dump him.
