Ricky Rubio Isn't Going Anywhere ... Yet
"Based on the information I have attained today, no team in any league has reached a deal with DKV Joventut concerning Ricky's buyout, which must be accomplished before Ricky is released from his contract with DKV Joventut."
On the surface, Kahn's statement seems to confirm reports from SI, Yahoo! and ESPN that any news regarding Rubio is premature. But considering all of those reports rely on unnamed sources, it's also possible that all we're hearing is Kahn's voice in an echo chamber. When writer's don't attach names to quotes, everything must be taken with a grain of salt.
What seems likely is that Rubio hasn't reached a deal yet, but if he and Joventut are truly talking, that's not to say he won't reach a deal soon -- thanks to the NBA's self-imposed restrictions, there's no way around the fact that Barcelona is in a much better position to compensate both Joventut and Rubio far beyond what the Timberwolves are capable.
