RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

If "fun to watch" was a fantasy category, Rubio would be a top-five player. His creativity on offense, his ball-handling and his pinpoint passes have made him a big favorite in the NBA blogosphere. But his actual production – in fantasy terms, at least – has a ways to go before it catches up to his reputation. He's an excellent source of assists (7.3 apg in 2012-13) and steals (2.4), and a better-than-average rebounder (4.0 rpg) for his position – but he can't shoot. Rubio's field goal percentage from the floor last season looked like other guards' shooting from three – and his three-point percentage was in John Wall territory. The return of Kevin Love should help Rubio's numbers; due to a variety of injuries, Minnesota's two biggest attractions only appeared together in five games last year.

2012-13

Rubio accomplished a remarkable feat in his first NBA season. He made general manager David Kahn look awfully smart. The Spanish phenom was having a rookie of the year-type campaign, averaging 10.6 points, over eight assists, four rebounds and two steals per game--and shooting a much better-than-expected 34 percent from three-point range--when his knee gave out. He suffered tears to his ACL and LCL on March 9, ending his rookie year and putting his status for the start of the 2012-13 season into question. When he does return, he'll be the established starter on a Minnesota team that is quickly growing into a dangerous team, which will only help his overall numbers.

2011-12

Minnesota took Rubio with the fifth overall selection in the 2009 NBA Draft, but he elected to play professionally in Spain the past two seasons. He's been a professional player since age 14 and played for Spain in the 2008 Olympics and won a silver medal, drawing raves from NBA players in the competition for his passing ability. He's seen as a pass-first point guard with great court vision, but questions remain about his ability to shoot. Amid speculation he'd demand to be traded away from Minnesota, he finally signed a contract to play in the NBA in June. Though it's sometimes hard to translate production in European leagues to projected production in the NBA, it's worth noting that Rubio is coming to the NBA with a lot of question marks in his game. Through 54 professional games in 2010-11, Rubio shot under 33 percent from the field (including under 25 percent from beyond the arc). In 20 games with Regal Barcelona, he averaged just 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in 23 minutes. One bright spot in his stat line is the 1.7 steals he averaged in those limited minutes. He's a candidate to hit the rookie wall and hit it hard at some point. Though he's been playing professionally since the 2005-06 season, Rubio has never averaged more than 23 minutes per game over the course of a season. Head coach Rick Adelman has been impressed by his play early in training camp and he'll likely begin the season as the starting point guard. However, he may be inconsistent given his age (just 21) and as he adapts to the NBA.
