Ricky Rubio has already begun its adventure in the Cleveland Cavaliers, team that arrived traded by the Minnesota Timberwolves and with which to play his tenth season in the NBA. Or at least that seems to be the case in the first games with the Ohio franchise, where he is playing a leading role in JB Bickerstaff’s schemes.
The Spanish base, however, does not get rid of transfer rumors and he could leave Cleveland during the campaign. The Cavaliers are overcrowded at position ‘1’ and Ricky terminates contract next June, so he can still be traded before the season is over, when he becomes a free agent and can decide his future.
Journalist Antoni Daimiel, one of the most recognized voices of the NBA in Spain, went through the microphones of La Ser and spoke about the future of the point guard of El Masnou who does not rule out in Spain next season if he ends the current season with the Cavaliers.
“It’s a very complicated situation. In the last year of the contract, in a team that doesn’t have a chance to win, to get into the playoffs. Be careful that we are not facing a last year of Ricky in the NBA. Although he is a young player, if the season ends in Cleveland, I dare say that He has options to return to Spain, I think it will be to Spain or even Barcelona I would dare to say, “assured the journalist.
Ricky Rubio is in the last year of the contract he signed with the Phoenix Suns for three seasons and $ 51 million and he arrives at the new season with the Cavaliers after having been one of the great protagonists of the summer with his great role in Tokyo 2020, being the top scorer of the Olympic event and showing that he is in one of the best moments of his career.
