Ricky Rubio wasn't really fulfilling the promise in Minnesota and with Coach Thibodeau making some big moves such as acquiring Jimmy Butler, it is anticipated that they would make another move and one that has been rumored for years.
Minnesota practically did not get anyone for Ricky Rubio, well at least for another season as they will get the 2017 first round draft pick that was originally owned by OKC.
Utah Jazz, on the other hand, made a great move by acquiring Rubio in a hope that he will be more healthy than George Hill.
“We’d like to thank Ricky for his time in Minnesota over the course of the last six-plus years,” said Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Tom Thibodeau. “Ricky has been a consummate professional over my time in Minnesota and has done tremendous things in the community. We appreciate all he’s done for the organization and wish him the best of luck in Utah.”
