The Republic reported that the Suns thought they’d worked out a deal for Golden State’s No. 7 pick and players in exchange for Amar’e Stoudemire. When Minnesota surprisingly drafted point guards Ricky Rubio and Johnny Flynn with the fifth and sixth picks, respectively, Curry was there for the taking for the Warriors. Golden State took the scoring machine out of Davidson with the seventh pick – and nixed the deal with the Suns.
Ricky Rubio and Guillermo “Willy” Hernangomez are gearing up to represent Spain at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019. Both NBA players are enthusiastic about the upcoming campaign in China, where Spain appear to have received a favorable draw in Group C with Tunisia, Iran and Puerto Rico. Getting to the Quarter-Finals will not be straightforward, however, as Spain – if they claim a top-two finish in that pool – would have to finish in the top two of Second Round Group J, which will also have the top two sides from a Group D consisting of Serbia, Italy, Philippines and Angola. “I’m happy to go with Spain,” Rubio, who played at the 2010 and 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cups, said to Radio Marca. “But I would need the okay of my (NBA) team.”

“It’s also a condition that I’ll have to speak when the team decides because, if it’s true that the final decision (to play for the national team) is ours as players, you don’t want to start badly with your new team,” he said. “I finished this past season very well physically and am available for selection (by Spain). Once I sign the contract (with his new NBA team), there will surely be no problem but there will always be the possibility that the team will tell you you have just signed this and you stay here this summer. In principle this should not happen but I can not give 100 percent to the selection until I sign the contract.”

Ricky Rubio and Willy Hernangomez are getting ready to join the Spanish selection at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019. Per FIBA.basketball, both NBA players are enthusiastic about the upcoming campaign in China, where Spain appears to have received a favorable draw in Group C with Tunisia, Iran, and Puerto Rico. “I’m happy to go with Spain,” Rubio said to Radio Marca. “But I would need the okay of my (NBA) team. It’s also a condition that I’ll have to speak when the team decides because, if it’s true that the final decision (to play for the national team) is ours as players, you don’t want to start badly with your new team”, he added as adapted by FIBA.
Here’s what Rubio said in an interview with Spanish outlet AS. On his possibilities ahead of free agency: There are a thousand possibilities, excluding the teams that have a starting point guard under contract who will remain there. Like Houston or Golden State. Then there’s Boston where you still don’t know if Kyrie Irving will be there. Or Charlotte with Kemba Walker. Things really don’t depend on you but on the other players. For example, if Kyrie Irving went to Utah, this wouldn’t be a possibility for me anymore. In the end, they choose first.
