According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, free agent guard Ricky Rubio is nearing a deal on a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rubio played an immense role in the Cavaliers’ torrid start to the season a year ago before tearing his left ACL.

Cleveland traded him to Indiana as an expiring contract at the deadline, but both sides were hopeful a reunion could happen – and now it will on a new multi-year deal.
