It looks like the Utah Jazz will still see Ricky Rubio four times a year as Ricky Rubio signed with the Phoenix Suns for three years, $51 million. The Phoenix Suns will gain a strong veteran point guard to help build a strong culture in that wayward organization. Rubio will be a stabilizing presence on the floor as well. Rubio was known to give his whole heart and soul into every game he played.
Free agent Ricky Rubio agreed three-year, $51 million deal with the Phoenix Suns, agent Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management says.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 30, 2019
Indiana is trading a first-round and two future second round picks to the Milwaukee for Malcolm Brogdon, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019
It appears that Ricky Rubio and his team had to pivot to Phoenix once Malcolm Brodgdon became available for the Indiana Pacers. Pacers get a younger point guard to pair with Victor Oladipo and Phoenix gets a strong veteran presence. This looks like a win-win for both parties.
Good luck to Ricky Rubio in Phoenix!
Phoenix, take better care of Rubio than you did to countless former Jazz coaches and players.
