The Cleveland Cavaliers are a team that's in a rebuild, and one of the most important things in a rebuild is good veterans who can guide young players. It seems as though the Cleveland Cavaliers have made their choice on who they want to be the veteran leader in the locker room.
Ricky Rubio has officially been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, alongside a second-round pick and cash. Taurean Prince was sent to the Timberwolves, and it is likely that the Timberwolves could use his shooting from beyond the arc. It seems as though this could be a beneficial deal for both sides.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will be selecting a draft prospect with the No. 3 overall draft pick, and they already have young players such as Darius Garland and Isaac Okoro. Ricky Rubio could be an amazing bench point guard, and he'll be a free agent after the 2021-22 season, meaning that his salary won't be an issue beyond this season
It is clear that this is a minor move that doesn't necessarily affect the NBA at large, but it could do wonders for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hopefully, Ricky Rubio can help the young core get better, and be an important veteran in the locker room.
