Hoopshype: rubio signed with barcelona
but... when i look at the rumors link, there isn't any more on the subject... anyone know anything?
here go some links, but i think they're all in spanish, which i don't know
I can translate a little. Some words are close to Spanish but Portuguese is mix of Spanish and French. Any way the jist of it is he signed a 6 year deal with Barcelona with an opt out clause after this year. The opt out amount decreases after each year but it is supposedly reasonable for what would be his NBA rookie contract. It doesn't mention what amount the buyouts would be though. But it seems to be much less than what he would make on his third year of his NBA rookie contract (which to me it means that his buyout starts close, if not all of what he will make on his first 2 years of his NBA contract respectively)
His buyout from Real Madrid to Barcelona was 5.3 Mil (US) which was less than what Real Madrid asked for on his contract. (I believe it was 8.4 mil)
thx so.. probably two seasons before he comes over?
Yea. If I were a betting man I would put it on him coming to the NBA for the 2012 season.
