Report: Wolves not trying to trade Rubio, but could this summer

Author:

Despite a report earlier this week saying the Timberwolves are "readily available" to trade point guard Ricky Rubio, esteemed NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski says it's unlikely Rubio will be dealt before Thursday's 2 p.m. trade deadline.

Wojnarowski wrote via his Yahoo! Sports vertical:

"Minnesota hasn't been actively searching for a trade for point guard Ricky Rubio this week, but that is likely to change this summer, league sources told The Vertical. Minnesota may start canvassing the market for a better shooting point guard to pair with young stars Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins. One NBA coach who has long been enamored with Rubio, league sources said: Milwaukee's Jason Kidd. The New York Knicks' desire to find a point guard could lead them to Rubio, too."

The New York Daily News had a report saying the Wolves are looking to trade Rubio and the Knicks could be a destination for the 25-year-old guard because of general manager Phil Jackson's goal to bring a quality point guard to Madison Square Garden.

That same report added that a deal for Rubio by Thursday's deadline is unlikely because the Knicks really don't have much to offer Minnesota.

Meanwhile, Sporting News reports that Minnesota has been trying to trade 33-year-old shooting guard Kevin Martin for the last year but a deal with him is also unlikely. He'll become a free agent this summer.
