Timberwolves Want Ricky Rubio To Become Better Shooter, Scorer


Ricky Rubio is the consummate floor general.  He can pass, see the play before it happens, and he’s becoming a pretty good leader.

Rubio though is not that polished of a shooter or scorer.  He shot 34% from midrange, and barely over 40% from within eight feet.

The T’Wolves and Flip Saunders love their floor general, but according to Fox Sports, would like “Rubio to become a better shooter, and scorer.”

“That’s his next step in the evolution of the point guard position,” recently hired Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders told KFAN 100.3. “Being a bigger scoring threat, being able to knock down shots, which will make the game much more easier for him.”
