Rubio returns to Wolves, with sharper perspective and skills

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) After a satisfactory first season with Phoenix, Ricky Rubio was startled to learn last month he'd been traded to Oklahoma City.

There was hardly time to process the sudden change when another deal struck two days later sent him back to Minnesota where his NBA career began. After three years away, the slick-passing, fan-favorite point guard has returned with a deeper life perspective, a thick beard and a slightly better jump shot.

Rubio, drafted by the Timberwolves as a 19-year-old out of Spain in 2009 with the fifth overall pick, was more than happy to reunite with coach Ryan Saunders and join a team with offense-minded guards he ought to fit well with.
