Knicks trying hard again to trade for Ricky Rubio
9/1/09 in NBA
Now that Ricky Rubio has signed with Barcelona and probably won't be in the NBA until 2011, the Knicks are pushing pretty hard to get him from the Timberwolves in a trade. They're reportedly offering David Lee in the deal, which seems like he would probably be someone that the Timberwolves would deal in a future trade, since they already have Al Jefferson and Kevin Love.
I'm not sure why the Knicks are going so hard for Rubio, when it seems like it would have been a lot easier just to trade up in the draft and take him with their own pick, but they are clearly very interested in him.
