Minny's pick is ours to keep. Sorry Rubio!


I remember after Ricky Rubio was drafted, there was many people in LA hoping that we could swap the Minny pick they owe us with Rubio.  Well, being an ESPN Insider, it seems like Kahn doesn't plan on trading Rubio.

"Minnesota Timberwolves director of basketball operations David Kahn says he doesn't expect to trade Ricky Rubio, the fifth pick in the 2009 NBA draft, and he believes the Spanish point guard will play for the team when he comes to the NBA."

"People move in this league, but in Ricky's case I have never tried to move him and don't have any intention of doing so. I'm eager for him to start his career for us in a Timberwolves uniform."

Well, now we know, Kahn is NOT looking to trade Rubio at all.  Its fine though, we still got the last laugh in the trade; I mean Cassel and a first rounder for Lionel Chalmers and Marko Jaric?  We went to the playoffs with cassel with Sammy, got ourselves a first rounder, and let go of Marko, whom I wasn't a fan of.

Also, maybe that pick will be a #1 pick?!?
