Word broke yesterday that Spanish point guard sensation Ricky Rubio had finally agreed to terms to come play in the U.S. for the Minnesota Timberwolves. After hearing the news, T-Wolves star Kevin Love tweeted this, essentially summing up what everyone was thinking.
Via The Sports Bank: “Sources close to the Wolves and thesportsbank.net believe the chances of Rubio playing in Minnesota continue to increase by the day. With Kahn in Spain this week, a deal appears to be nearing completion and the announcement could be coming soon.”
