Rubio signs with Regal Barcelona with an affordable buyout in 2011"

(via "Ricky Rubio, the 5th pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves in this year's draft, has agreed to terms on a contract with Regal Barcelona. The Spanish team will pay a buyout of 3.7 million Euros, approximately $5.3 million, to Rubio's previous team, Joventut. Rubio will sign a six-year agreement that contains an affordable buyout in 2011."

On the bright side for the Timberwolves, this gives Johnny Flynn a couple seasons to work on his game without worrying if he can play with Ricky. And hopefully Rubio will put on a few pounds over the next two years and have a more "NBA ready" body.
