Signed to a rookie extension in October 2014, Rubio has a total of $250,000 in bonuses broken up into three categories: free-throw percentage, free-throw attempts per game and total field goal percentage. With the criteria set at Rubio appearing in at least 62 games, the former first-round pick is in line to reach two out of three bonuses. Rubio earned $150,000 in bonuses last season for free-throw attempts and percentage; this season he will likely earn $75,000 for free-throw percentage but miss out on the bonus for free-throw attempts per game.

Hell, 70 games in, I guess it’s still a learning curve for me and for everybody else. Hopefully, I continue to make the right plays.”
