2011 NBA Draft: Ricky Rubio's Impact on the Timberwolves' Draft and Future Plans

He has finally arrived.

 

Ricky Rubio is a dynamic player. His highly anticipated arrival to the NBA is now going to happen in the upcoming season.

Rubio was drafted fifth in the 2009 NBA draft but never negotiated the buyout from his team at the time, DKV Joventut. This was either because he did not want to or the team did not release him.

Things became more apparent that he did not want to come to the Timberwolves as he moved to FC Barcelona Basquet for the following season.

Rubio’s dynamic point guard play has had fans and critics licking their lips to see him.

He has exceptional handling and a very high basketball IQ to go along with his great court vision. What more could you want from your franchise point guard?

There are also the nay sayers that think he is overhyped and will be a flop when he starts plying his trade in the States.

One thing is for sure. The Minnesota Timberwolves are happy to have him with the team, and his timely signature has made it so that they now can reconfigure their decisions going into the 2011 NBA draft.
