Ricky Rubio’s time with the Minnesota Timberwolves could be coming to a close. The team has dangled its franchise point guard in trade offers this season, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. In packages with Shabazz Muhammad, Minnesota has offered its veteran point guard to several teams around the league. With five weeks remaining until the NBA trade deadline, there seems to be enough to point to a near future where Rubio is wearing a different uniform. The Wolves, of course, drafted Providence’s Kris Dunn with their No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 draft. But the team is said to be looking for a bridge-type guard to help make the transition from Rubio to Dunn in the meantime, per Wojnarowski.
