Report: Ricky Rubio was displeased about being traded to Cavaliers
Ricky Rubio sounded completely disenchanted with the Timberwolves last season.
Rubio probably didn’t mind getting traded after the season. But to the Cavaliers?
Rubio is a true professional. He’s playing a key role as the Cavs backup point guard and mentoring his younger teammates. He needn’t love his situation to make the most of it.
The Cavaliers have even gotten off to a surprisingly strong 4-4 start. Presumably, their dismal outlook was the biggest reason he didn’t want to join them.
If the Cleveland regresses toward expectations, perhaps Rubio will show more frustration. He got blunt in Minnesota, after all.
