There has already been rumored interest in D Rose as a FA and now the Knicks are back with another attempt to acquire Rubio (for the 8th pick). If the Wolves trade Rubio in order to sign Rose then I will be very unhappy.
I am one of the bigger Rubio supporters and don't really like the trade since it could set the Wolves back several games this season and I hate continual rebuilding. I also really question whether or not Dunn or Jones are capable starting PG's.
Two possible scenarios where it could make sense.
1) there is a second trade in the works and the Wolves need more draft picks to pull off the addition of a very good to near elite player.
2) They draft 3 and D Ntilikina (or a different PG in this PG heavy draft) and he provides a better fit for the future. And the Wolves already face the uncertainty of what to do with Rubio in two years when he becomes a FA. Sign him for 15-20M and 4+ years with his health? I might like Rubio a lot but that seems like a bad idea. It would be a gamble to draft another PG but I could understand taking a step back this year and really loading up for KAT/Wiggins prime.
BUT NO D ROSE!
