Ricky Rubio....and the Euro-NBA Rule

Ricky Rubio decides to stay overseas after going 5th in the draft....makes no sense. I honestly believe that it's more unfair to College players, the Drafting GM, the whole Organization and the NBA. I remember in 2000, the Knicks took Fredric Weis and he went, got killed by Vince and never came over to the NBA. Oh Yeah, We past on Ron Artest.

I think IMO, there should be a rule against this. Every Year, there are college kids not picked because some teams take Euro Talents and some panned out but most dont, they either come over to the NBA, average between 0.1 and 0.9 for 3 years and go back overseas. Thats a college kid who doesn't get the chance to get drafted and have to stuggle even more in life going to a team for a practice so on and so forth.

I think the rule should be any Euro talent can come over if they sign a waiver denouncing their rights to remain or return overseas if drafted. That way, there is no " i dont wanna play at X" or " place Z is too cold" You play where you get drafted. Also, if the player does not wanna play, that team should keep their rights and not pay them....

I agree

i undertstand that this is stupid but Rubio is an exception . cuz of his buyout, and the T'wolves really dont care if he comes NOW, hence Flynn

Yea, I mean I read something where one of them is getting Traded...so Rubio may get his wish but i think it's completely unfair and if I was David Khan...i go and make Flynn my leader and let Rubio stay overseas...

A trade would have prospects and picks

Why do we need Mcgrady. Minnesota is in rebuiding mode. They want prospects. Not old stars.
A young SG or SF will be needed to get rubio. I think that they will keep him.

The Timberwolves own his rights for 3 years, and if he holds out, he will hae the least respect out of anyone in the league. Nobody will take a chance. He will have ruined his career. He needs to come over. Hes going to make tons in the NBA. So he might have to live like normal americans for 2 years while he pays off his buyout. Im guessing he didnt live that much better in Europe. If he doesnt come over, he will have to beat Flynn, and will take at least 2 years to do so. If he comes now, he will have a chance to get it now

so wouldnt that mean the

so wouldnt that mean the teams also cant darft the euros and then send them overseas for a coupel years...it has to go both ways....if anything that helps college guys make the team because the euros going overseas doesnt count against the roster..if it went by the way you said there would be less college guys playing on the nba teams because the guys the teams drafted to stash overseas would be on the rosters...its alot more important to college players to get signed by a team then to just get there named called at the draft

i have no problem with the

i have no problem with the rule..i dont believe it should be easier to get to the nba..and i cant feel to sorry for the college guys because after college they get sooo many offers to play overseas for alot of money...which take up spots that some overseas guy who has worked with the program there doesnt get and the money they were hoping for..so even though the euros take some of our spots int he nba there are many many more college guys and now hs guys who take some of the euros spot and money over there

I agree, you can only

I agree, you can only declare for the draft giving the TEAM the option to keep you or cut you... take instance, if you are a senior but have already declared your intentions to play else where- (this is hypothetical) you can't be drafted in the first round... second round makes sense because nothing is guaranteed.
