Ricky Rubio traded to Utah: Reaction from around the National Basketball Association

Just a few hours after trading Rubio to the Utah Jazz, the Wolves agreed to terms with free agent point guard Jeff Teague on a three-year deal worth $57 million.

Additionally, ESPN's Marc Stein indicates that league sources are "convinced" that Teague will sign with the Timberwolves.

So ultimately we won't really know how to evaluate this trade until we find out which point guard the Timberwolves choose to replace Rubio and how much that costs them. Let's take a look at both teams.

Add to all of that exciting draft prospect Donovan Mitchell, who has been compared to Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose - that ought to be enough to entice Hayward to stay, right? Others lamented his inability to shoot and score consistently.

Regardless of what Hayward and Ingles decide, however, Rudy Gobert isn't going anywhere.

Prior to joining the NBA, Rubio played six seasons of professional basketball in the Spanish ACB League. With that in mind, Rubio should be a nice addition for Utah.

-The Chicago Bulls waived Rajon Rondo, ending the point guard's stint with the team after one season. "I'm sorry we couldn't make the playoffs because you deserve it". Jon Krawczynski of AP reports that owner Glen Taylor "resisted" any Rubio trades until immediately before, which suggests that a worthwhile party became an interested one.

Takata Said to Decide on Bankruptcy Protection on Liabilities
In 1991, Takata opened a research and development center in Auburn Hills, Mich., where its USA headquarters operates. Founded in 1933 in Japan, it used weaving technology to manufacture lifelines for parachutes and other textiles.

According to Synergy, he ranks in the 69th percentile on pick-and-rolls including passes, which along with his penchant for ball movement, should make him a good fit in the Jazz offense. The 2018 pick involved in the deal is reportedly that of the Thunder, who sent it to Utah in a 2015 trade.

Rumors of Tom Thibodeau's desire to trade Rubio have flooded his Minnesotan tenure from the start.

Teague, a one-time NBA All-Star while with the Atlanta Hawks, averaged 15.3 points and 7.8 assists last season while playing with the Indiana Pacers.

The roster already has rising stars Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns as well.

The big reason Minnesota made this move, though, is shooting.

With Rubio in Salt Lake, who will be the next point guard to purify himself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka? If the protections on the pick are unchanged, it will be lottery-protected in 2018.

Rubio was about the worst possible fit to play alongside that duo, so it's understandable Minnesota would be interested in moving him to create cap space to sign a point guard who fits better. All average draft position info via FantasyPros.
