rubio coming over

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=6617479

The Spanish point guard has agreed to join the Timberwolves next season, ending a drawn-out, delicate, two-year negotiation with the team that had many league observers believing he did not want to play in Minnesota.

A person with knowledge of the agreement confirmed to The Associated Press Wednesday night that Rubio will be in Minnesota next season, giving the woebegone Timberwolves a much-needed dose of good news.

not to get into a whole "how can we get rubio thing??@?@?!!!"

 

But rather, with it looking like the little euro will be playing int he great white north next season, my question is... what happens to his contract situation? Is it like he is a rookie now? Or does he become a FA when the rest of his draft class does?

I also understand that it all prob means nothing without the new CBA in place yet.

 

I am actually happier that he is coming over to minn now. He may get better and better and go though his growing pains... then come to NY (where he wants to play) as a FA when he is ready to contribute. That all depends though on when he will be a FA...
