The specific content of the transaction is that the Timberwolves used the 17th pick in exchange for Rubio from the Thunder, with the 25th and 28th picks. Rubio was selected by the Timberwolves with the fifth overall pick in 2009, having previously played for the Timberwolves for 6 seasons.
It is worth mentioning that Rubio was sent to the Thunder by the Sun not long ago and was replaced by Paul. Last season, Rubio averaged 13 points and 8.8 assists per game. Last year, he renewed his contract with the Suns and signed a three-year contract of 51 million U.S. dollars. The two-year contract expires. The annual salary next season is 17 million U.S. dollars. After being sent to the Thunder, Rubio also expressed his dissatisfaction. The Sun promised not to trade him but sent him away. Rubio felt that he was cheated. Now returning to the Timberwolves, Rubio is back to where the dream began. However, the Timberwolves already have Russell and drafted No. 1 Edwards, who is also a point guard. Rubio’s prospects in the Timberwolves are not optimistic.
