Wow. Trading Rubio must mean that they are looking to sign another point guard in free agency, as the Utah Jazz acquire the 26 year old for a top-14 protected draft pick. I’m not sure what year that draft pick is in though. In one of my previous posts I told you that the Wolves were looking to sign a point guard in free agency. Having a list of Kyle Lowry, Jrue Holiday, George Hill, and Jeff Teague. Looking at this trade I’m assuming George Hill is going to be leaving the Jazz and signing with another team, maybe even the Wolves. Though really if he would go to the Wolves the Jazz should’ve offered to trade him and put him in the trade. Because now you are just really letting him go. Maybe the Wolves knew they were going to get him in free agency and decided not to trade to get him. Because I guess both teams could work out a George Hill for Ricky Rubio trade. Both teams would kind of lose, and win, because the Jazz will get a young player entering his prime, maybe to coax Gordon Hayward to stay, but a horrible shooter and a bigger salary. The Wolves will get a nice shooter in George Hill and could sign him for less, because he is 31, which is also a bad thing. He doesn’t really fit the age group of the team, which is supposed to be young, and supposed to be taking over the league in a few years. I guess the Wolves were looking to take off some cap space before free agency starts at 12 tonight. I’m almost certain by this move the Wolves are going to be looking to sign a point guard to fill in for Rubio. A good ball handler and passer and shooter to play along side KAT, Andrew Wiggins, and Jimmy Butler. That’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed. 🙂 PEACE
I know I didn’t post yesterday and it was because I had no time, and to be honest nothing much happened at all. Sorry.
