Report: Rubio traded from Wolves to Jazz; may impact Hayward's FA
The Ricky Rubio trade is happening, sources tell The Salt Lake Tribune. Deal is close to being done— Tony Jones (@tribjazz) June 30, 2017
The Jazz, who had reportedly been working on a solution to fill the starting point guard position with considerable concern veteran George Hill would decamp, potentially influencing free agent Gordon Hayward's decision-making in free agency as well. While certainly a competent one in the NBA, Rubio is a step down from Hill. However, it remains to be seen what other moves the Jazz may make, given they used cap space to take Rubio on that would disappear with the start of free agency July 1.

Don't believe it's enough. More worried about what that snake Pat Riley will do in his meeting w/ Hayward. Miami the bigger threat imo https://t.co/ru1QVN79k5— CelticsLife.com (@CelticsLife) June 30, 2017
