Wolves, Rubio agree on 4-year, $56 million contract extension


The Minnesota Timberwolves and guard Ricky Rubio have agreed on a four-year contract extension.

The deal beat an 11 p.m. deadline that would have allowed Rubio to become a restricted free agent at the end of the regular season. He was in the final of his rookie contract.

The extension will lock him up for the Wolves for the next four years.

Rubio averaged 9.5 points and 8.6 assists per game for the Wolves last season. In his first three years in the NBA, Rubio has averaged 10.2 points, 8.1 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game, while shooting just 37 percent from the field.

But 1500 ESPN notes that he has really emerged as one of the better defensive point guards in the league.
