Ricky Rubio will be up for grabs as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career this summer. The Spanish guard acknowledged that big names like Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson will, in a way, shape the fate of other free agents.

“It’s the first summer I can really choose. It’s a bit early to see how the market is and it’s true that you depend a lot on many others. There are many free agents, like Leonard, Irving, Durant, Thompson… and they mark a bit the fate of the rest of the players,” Rubio said as reported by EFE, per Mundo Deportivo.

“But the puzzle is clarified a bit and in the end, you don’t have to wait for everyone but you have a little clearer idea. I’ve always said that my goal was to go to a team where I have playoff aspirations and something more,” Rubio added. The Spanish guard had previously mentioned that his goal is to win a championship on a team with a protagonist role.

Rubio averaged 12.7 points, 6.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds with the Utah Jazz in 2018-2019.
