Ricky Rubio Coming to America: Spanish guard Ricky Rubio, 20, will join the Minnesota Timberwolves next season, three years after the team made him its No. 5 pick in the NBA Draft. Rubio has been playing for Barcelona, where the heralded young player lost his starting spot last season. "Ricky's skill set and feel for the game have made him one of the best young players in Europe for six years now, and at age 20 he's still a young player with a lot of upside," said Wolves president David Kahn.
