For those of you still not familiar with the basketball action on the other side of the pond, Ricky Rubio is a 17-year-old Spanish point guard who plays for Joventut Badalona in the ACB and Euroleague. He's considered by some to be the best non-NBA player in the world (sorry, Josh), and is already drawing comparisons to Pistol Pete and Magic Johnson. Exhibit G:

This guy is sick

If he grows a few more inches to something like 6-7 then forget it. He will be the MJ of Euros. A kid with this type of flair for ball handling and passing would just be electric in the NBA.

He is a PG, he should not grow any more.

Well of course he'll grow some more though. He's 17 and he's already 6-4. I wouldn't be surprised if he grows 2-3 more centimeters by the time 26 comes.

Mock drafts have had him on the Top 5 for a while so the only chance on getting would be the Raptors sucking badly or a trade. It would be really difficult. And besides I doubt he is going to the NBA any time soon.

if he's a pro, does he have to be drafted?

who owns his rights?

would he not be a FA?

SJ, he has contract with the Joventut, so right now they are who own the rights.

If your talking about NBA, he can go to the draft this season, but he can wait till he is 22. If he doen't go to the drafts, after that age he can be drafted for teams.

Dunno if it's this what you were asking.
