We all know about the Rubio fiasco....here's an uppdate via Mark Miller at Yahoo
I'm sure everyone is sick of the "non-news" news as of late, since nothing but an endless void of waiting has been thrust upon us. It irks me as well, but as long as I don't see any more filler headlines about the Knicks looking to sign some ridiculous dude who really has no basketball relevance then I'm fine. But some fans may take interest in what seems like David Kahn's one man crusade to pull the breaks on every Knicks related point guard pursuit. At least the pursuits that actually matter anyways.
the Knicks are saying they haven't talked to Minnesota about Rubio since the day after the draft in June, according to the New York Daily News. Knicks team president Donnie Walsh has apparently kept busy since then talking about sign-and-trade deals for restricted free agents forward David Lee and/or guard Nate Robinson
Miller basically dispells all the behind the scenes wheeling and dealing talks that were suppose to be happening when Rubio made it known he'd be staying put to play euro ball. He then goes on to tell us Kahn is giving Rubio no gauruntees on his future with the Wolves.
Maybe this could be why...
Ramon Sessions may not be a free agent much longer, and no it won't be a deal with the Clippers or Knicks. Word is that the Minnesota Timberwolves have reached out to Sessions and may be willing to do a multi-year deal in the neighborhood of $3 to $4 million per season, which would likely require a sign-and-trade with Milwaukee.
Props to Steve Kyler at hoopsworld on that hot lil' tidbit. The story further goes on to suggest Kahn's reasoning but it seems clear to me. Kahn is trying to earn his stripes by screwing the Knicks. The guy plays hardball. I hear Minnesota fans love him and I guess they should, it appears he's trying to put together a team for them.
But again nothing is done as of yet. same story. Will Sessions be happy playing second fiddle to Flynn while having a cross seas euro ballin muppet to worry about after 2 years into his contract? Who knows? But I'm sure we'll find out soon.
