While the Kings were the first American stop on the 2009 Ricky Rubio draft tour, they aren’t looking to the be the last. Rubio today met with the Oklahoma City Thunder in Los Angeles, who flew in to meet the Euro phenom.
It’s yet to be confirmed if the Thunder were allowed to look into Rubio’s contract situation (something the Kings were granted), but the chances of Rubio falling to the Kings who pick fourth is getting more slight by the hour.
Sam Amick mentioned that Rubio will most likely be returning home tomorrow at some point, so another visit with the Kings seems unlikely…and he’ll leave the Golden state without a promise from the Kings.
A promise that might have stopped Rubio from moving on.
