Rubio has interest in Boston, Houston, Hornets & Warriors
 

 

Quenton S. Albertie
In an interview with EuroHoops, veteran point guard Ricky Rubio discusses his playing future as he’s set to hit free agency on July 1. Interestingly enough, though displaying an interesting in returning to the Utah Jazz, the floor general mentions the Boston Celtics as a potential destination along with the Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets.

There are a thousand possibilities, excluding the teams that have a starting point guard under contract who will remain there. Like Houston or Golden State. Then there’s Boston where you still don’t know if Kyrie Irving will be there. Or Charlotte with Kemba Walker. Things really don’t depend on you but on the other players.

For example, if Kyrie Irving went to Utah, this wouldn’t be a possibility for me anymore. In the end, they choose first.

Rubio, who signed a four-year, $55 million contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2015, was traded to the Utah Jazz in 2017.

He’s one of the league’s best facilitators, with the fifth-highest career a*sist average (7.7 a*sists per game) among active players and 18th-highest a*sist average of all-time. Though not traditionally thought of as a standout defender, his 1.9 steals per game are ranked second among active players and Rubio has four seasons when he finished in the top-10 for steals per game (three of those seasons actually saw him finish with the second-highest average).

His biggest weakness is scoring the ball, with the 28-year-old shooting just 32.2 percent from three for his career and 50.0 percent from 0-3 feet around the rim. Averaging 11.1 points per game, he still is a relatively opportunistic scorer and while he won’t look for his own points aggressively, it’s important to note that Rubio isn’t shy about trying to score; he’s just not great at it as his career field goal percentage of 38.8 will show.

The Celtics haven’t had a player of Rubio’s ilk since Rajon Rondo, although the former Big 4 member was a better finisher and defender.

On a team that often lacked an ideal level of ball-movement, Rubio could be useful. Although Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving averaged a career-high 6.9 a*sists per game last season, Rubio is a pass-first player where Irving has a score-first mindset. With the Celtics having plenty of mouths to feed with or without Irving, dedicating themselves to sharing the ball could make a world of difference.

Looking at Rubio’s past contract, the Celtics should be able to afford his price tag with the non-taxpayer mid-level exception, valued at $9.3 million for 2019-20. However, Rubio likely won’t be considered as a backup, so signing him will only be a possibility if Irving signs elsewhere first.

Lmao are you serious? A pass first ball handling point guard? Not sure on his shot percentage is but I’d like him but know we can’t afford him due to CP3 fu*king us with his contract

We already have 2 ball dominant guards in Harden + CP3 and then Gordon too. What is Rubio going to do without the ball in his hands? He can't shoot 3's either. He absolutely does not fit in Houston.

Well it’s obvious what we’re doing isn’t working, gotta change something up

I agree, we need to blow this team up. But adding Rubio to the current roster makes no sense.

Eh. If NYK does the AD deal you got DSJ but if no DSJ, vets like Beverley and George Hill (saves MIL on the tax after they resign Middleton, Mirotic, Brogdon & Lopez). Maybe MIA dumps Dragic. He played for Gentry.

He must want to come off the bench (GS, HOU). Him in CHA would be a good basketball fit. Rubio in a Spurs-like offense ������ but if I was CHA I'd tank for Cole Anthony.

If you cant shoot 3s, you can't play for the Rockets. We need guys that can make it rain. We got all the play creating we need. We need legit shooters.

Hayward plus 2 firsts. He only has 2 years left. Not as long as that Chandler Parsons deal they had. Also with him going there and becoming the go to guy, he can get back to shape.

He wasting his talent in Boston, the young guys took over soon as he broke his leg. I don't think Boston thought Tatum and brown would contribute so much so quickly
