The best international player in the history of each franchise

Minnesota Timberwolves

Ricky Rubio, Spain

During the six years Ricky Rubio spent with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the flashy Spaniard was ninth in total assists league-wide, and sixth in steals.

He may have never lived up to the vast expectations he had coming into the NBA, but he’s been a more-than-serviceable floor general, and the Wolves were, more often than not, more effective when he was in the game.

In Minnesota’s franchise history, Rubio places second in both assists and second, behind only the incomparable Kevin Garnett.
