Rubio Says He’s Talking With Barca About Future

BILBAO, Spain (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves draft pick Ricky Rubio says he is talking with Spanish club Barcelona about his future.

Rubio said “we are talking with Barcelona and we will soon see” after Barca beat Bilbao for the Spanish league title Tuesday night.

The 20-year-old Rubio has filled his trophy case with titles, but he has struggled to score this season and lost his spot in Barcelona’s starting lineup.

The Timberwolves selected Rubio at No. 5 in the 2009 NBA draft, but the Spanish point guard decided to stay in Spain to play.

The Associated Press reported earlier this month that the Timberwolves had reached a deal with Rubio for him to join the team next season.

    Sure! Give him No. 4. Then we’ll have two jersey’s that don’t need to be “retired.” Nobody will want to wear them anyway.

    What a complete waste of a draft pick. Plan joke. To think we could have drafted Del Currys kid instead bet we would have at least won 25 games.


    Good God, enough about this little turd already.
