The Tweet: A league source has confirmed as @danbarreirokfan and @wojyahoonba first tweeted that Rubio did sign w/ #Timberwolves yesterday

That my friends, is the tweet that Jerry Zgoda just tweeted less than five minutes ago.

Obviously, as I said in my previous article earlier, there is some legit reasoning to think that Rubio has already signed a contract with the Wolves. It makes the most sense now, and it's exciting to be a Timberwolves fan with the upcoming draft and the possibility of the Rubio plan coming to fruition.

Rubio is rumored to have signed a promise contract per a Jerry Zgoda tweet as well.

The truth is starting to come out. I don't expect an actual announcement to be made until the NBA Finals and Rubio's season is done.

There isn't any reason to deny it now, Rubio is coming, and I'd give that a guarantee.

So far, NBA.com, StarTribune and ESPN.com have confirmed it. 

With Rubio, the point guard position for the Timberwolves at the most, has some upside and that's something you couldn't say last season. 

And let the drama commence, the comments come and the trade scenarios occur!

Look for my article on Ricky Rubio's potential in the upcoming weeks.

Thanks for reading!
