Ricky Rubio took to social media and reacted to his return to the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he started his NBA career.
Rubio spent the first six years of his career with Minnesota, averaging 10.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 8.5 assists in 353 games.
The Spanish guard got traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Oklahoma City Thunder and then the Wolves acquired him from the Thunder.
With the addition of Rubio and Anthony Edwards (No.1 pick of the Draft), Minnesota can be optimistic for a return to the playoffs next season.
With new online casinos constantly updating their NBA odds, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the Timberwolves become a betting favorite to enter the playoff picture.
Furthermore, the return of Rubio will be beneficial for Karl-Anthony Towns, who had called the Spanish guard one of the best teammates he ever played with.
Rubio is considered a pass-first player and would be helpful for a team that includes great scorers, like D’Angelo Russell, Towns and Edwards.
Especially the latter will have extra motivation to prove he belongs to the NBA, as the top pick of the Draft. Edwards is expected to be a betting favorite for the Rookie of the Year award not only by the top betting websites and online casinos in the US, but in Europe too, like casino en ligne francais.
