Ricky Rubio and Memphis
Does Ricky want to play for Memphis???
Nobody knows. Rubio hasnt confirmed either way
I don't think so. But I read somewhere that Memphis had Marc Gasol go visit Rubio to try and convince him to come over and play for the Grizzlies. I think they call his bluff and if not Sacramento has a lot of leverage if they take Jordan Hill for a 2-4 swap.
I love how all of these people are basing their conception of Rubio not wanting to play in Memphis on an unconfirmed rumor they heard. Rubio has never stated either way and according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, an accredited investigative newspaper, Grizzlie GM Chris Wallce spoke to Rubio's agent and his agent said Memphis is definitely not ruled out. Not saying events in the future won't prove otherwise, just saying don't be so negligent to believe the first bit of information (whether it be false or true) and take it as fact without looking into the matter.
I think that no young prospect wants to play for a bottom feeder team. Thats just me tho.
He's paying money out of his own pocket to come play here. Do you really think Memphis is a great franchise to market his game? I don't think so.
