Cavaliers, Ricky Rubio Discussing Buyout
According to Shams Charania and Joe Vardon of The Athletic, the veteran guard Ricky Rubio and the Cleveland Cavaliers have begun talking about a potential buyout from his contract with the organization.
This comes after he has been on leave in Spain to tend to his mental health issues; the issues are so massive that he may never play basketball again. It’s not even expected he finishes this season.
Cleveland signed Rubio to a three-year, $18.5 million deal in the summer of 2022. The organization signed him while he was nursing a torn ACL.
