Cavaliers take over Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio in a trade with the Wolves

The Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday made the services of Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves and a second-round pick from the 2022 draft, as well as cash for forward Taurean Prince, according to ESPN.

Rubio, 30, returned to Minnesota last season after being traded for fellow point guard Chris Paul. He averaged 8.6 points and 6.4 assists for the Timberwolves after a resurgent season with the Phoenix Suns.

The Cavaliers recently lost their backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova after he signed a three-year deal with Melbourne United earlier this month.

Rubio is in the final season of a $ 51 million, three-year contract.
