Ricky Rubio WTF: "We'll see"
Fresh off helping his Regal Barcelona team nail the Spanish ACB hoops championship, it seemed like Ricky Rubio would soon be winging his way to a Timberwolves locker.
But now, the point guard touted as the T-Wolves' savior may be getting cold feet.
There were plenty of unconfirmed reports that he finally inked a deal with the team on May 31. And Rubio handles the ball better than he speaks English, so maybe this is all a big misunderstanding. But it plays into a suspicion that's been afoot ever since Rubio was drafted in 2009.
But with the Timberwolves front office still mum on the deal, fans -- and the team -- are left twisting in the wind again.
