The Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves have discussed a straight-up trade involving the Mavericks’ Wesley Matthews and the Timberwolves’ Ricky Rubio, ESPN’s Tim McMahon reported Wednesday.
Minnesota’s No. 7 pick and Dallas’ No. 9 pick have also been thrown into the mix. But the report said that Dallas did not “feel the urgency” to move up from the ninth selection in Thursday’s draft.
Rubio’s name has been mentioned in trade rumors for the last few months. It would be a shock to see him still with Minnesota come November.
