The Cleveland Cavaliers are acquiring Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, a 2022 second-round pick and cash for forward Taurean Prince, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Rubio, 30, returned to Minnesota last season after being included in the Chris Paul trade. He averaged 8.6 points and 6.4 assists for the Timberwolves after a resurgent season with the Phoenix Suns.
The Cavaliers recently lost their backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova after he signed a 3-year contract with Melbourne United earlier this month.
Rubio is in the final season of a $ 51 million, 3-year contract.
Prince, 27, was acquired by Cleveland in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets this season. He averaged 10.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 23.7 minutes per game.
