"...With Minnesota Timberwolves' President David Kahn bound for Spain this week, some feel the trip isn't necessarily to bring Ricky Rubio back to Minnesota.Speaking of Sessions, Hahn says Walsh has drawn a line in the sand.
One insider tells RealGM's Alex Kennedy that Kahn could be working out a scenario where Rubio would be dealt to the New York Knicks.
"The Knicks have closed off negotiations with all free agent point guards until next week. I think they're making a push for Rubio and if that fails, then they'll reopen talks with their other options," says the source.
"Kahn and [Knicks' President] Donnie Walsh are close and New York is looking for a cheap point guard who could help attract free agents next summer. Rubio fits that mold. I think that's what this latest trip to Spain is about, working something out with New York."
The Knicks have been in talks with multiple free agent point guards, most notably Ramon Sessions...."
We know Rubio has been the target all along so we'll have to see if this report has any merritt. It seems like his buyout situation shouldn't be as difficult as it's being made out to be.
To me, any discussions still come down to who the Wolves would want from our roster and that has to start with Wilson Chandler.
