According to the famous NBA reporter Warner rosky, league sources revealed that the Minnesota Timberwolves had reached a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Timberwolves traded point guard Rubio to the Cavaliers in exchange for Cavaliers striker torien prince, the second round draft in 2022 and some cash.
Rubio, 30, once known as the “golden boy of Spain”, is now a veteran point guard who has worked hard in the NBA for many years. Rubio became famous when he was young and became famous in the international basketball world early. At the 2009 NBA draft conference, Rubio was selected by the Timberwolves in the fifth place in the first round and entered the league.
However, after entering the NBA, Rubio’s development did not meet people’s expectations. So far in his career, Rubio has played for Minnesota Timberwolves, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns and other teams, averaging 11 points, 4.2 rebounds and 7.6 assists.
In the 2020-21 season, Rubio returned to his old club Timberwolves to assist the young players of the team. This season, he can get 8.6 points and 6.4 assists per game for the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves finally only achieved a poor record of 23-49, ranking 13th in the west, and missed the playoffs again.
Prince, 27, was sent to the Cavaliers in the deal between the nets and the Cavaliers in the 2020-21 season. In the 2020-21 season, Prince played 23.7 minutes for the Cavaliers every game, and could get 10.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
Rubio signed a three-year $51 million contract in the summer of 2019. The 2021-22 season is the last year of the contract period, with a salary of $17.8 million. Prince’s salary for the 2021-22 season is $13 million. It is understood that the knight plans to keep Rubio. They just lost the team’s long-term backup point guard delavidova. Delavidova signed a three-year contract with Melbourne United this month.
