The New York Knicks are reportedly still interested in trading for Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio.
The name Ricky Rubio has been attached to the New York Knicks a lot this season. The Knicks must like the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard.
Some members of the organization would again like to try to pursue Minnesota’s Ricky Rubio in a trade this offseason, sources said.
Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau is interested in bringing in his former point guard, Derrick Rose, for a reunion. Per Begley, the prospective trade was a point guard swap.
Thibs couldn’t justify sitting him and especially trading him.
With Rose now, an option in free agency Minnesota could be more willing to deal.
