Ricky Rubio to weigh playing in Spain
Rubio told Catalan radio ONA FM that "I want to wait until I see there is no chance of resolving the situation, and then I will sign with another team."
Rubio said that he would contact Barcelona to see if he could practice with the team while the lockout continues, similar to Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol and his brother Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Rubio said "it would be nice to practice and play with the Gasols on Barca."
The Timberwolves drafted the 21-year-old Spaniard in 2009, but Rubio chose to stay in Spain before moving to the U.S. this summer.
