Those talks have sprung up again but it looks like Minnesota has a contingency plan. This T-Wolves team have a bunch of young bulls starting with Karl Anthony-Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Zach Lavine. They also have rookie point guard Kris Dunn, who is the reason why Rubio might get traded.
Woj reports that the Timberwolves want to see how Kris Dunn plays. New head coach, Tom Thibodeau doesn’t expect Dunn to be starter until about 20 games in. As far as Rubio, the Sacramento Kings are the most eager to nab him but it’s still on hold.
Minnesota is hoping to swap out Rubio for Dunn but it’s not going to work that easy. Rubio, who’s only 25 years old is a starting point guard and now there’s weapons around him so who knows what can happen.
The expectations for Minnesota are very high despite them still being so young. Keeping Rubio as your point guard for season would be the best thing they can do and have Dunn come off the bench and learn.
