Just received this tip from our good friend Pete over at The Sports Bank regarding what seems like a very possibility that Ricky Rubio could be playing in Minnesota next season after all:

Minnesota Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations David Kahn has remained plenty busy this summer with the Wolves and it seems like he has one final thing to do: solve the Ricky Rubio buyout.

Sources close to the Wolves and thesportsbank.net believe the chances of Rubio playing in Minnesota continue to increase by the day. With Kahn in Spain this week, a deal appears to be nearing completion and the announcement could be coming soon.
