Another source confirms that Gordon Hayward really wants the Utah Jazz to bring back George Hill. That limits the point-guard list to Lowry and Hill - would anyone else be an upgrade over Rubio?
Minnesota acquired Jimmy Butler from the Bulls during last week's draft.
Now, Ricky Rubio is the latest player on the move, as he is now headed to Utah. Once the season ended with a disappointing 31 victories and the 13th straight trip to the lottery, Rubio quietly let it be known to the organization that he would welcome a change of scenery if they felt there was a better point guard for Thibodeau's system. It's possible: With Butler on the squad, Minnesota has transformed from an exciting young team to one with actual playoff promise.

If Teague does end up signing with Minnesota, it would be on a 3-year deal worth $55 million, per Marc Stein. By trading for Rubio early, Utah has mitigated the damage from its worst-case scenario-losing both Hayward and Hill-and improved its positioning for the Hayward derby.
Simply put, he's more proven than any of Utah's non-Hill options and he's under contract at average starter money ($14.3 million next season and $14.8 million in 2018-19). Although Rubio is a solid guard, he's limited offensively, and he only contributed to Minnesota's spacing problems. There is some concern that Teague, given his relatively small stature, will not age overly well but some of that risk is mitigated by a three-year pact instead of a maximum four-year deal. He averaged 16 points and 10.5 assists in 24 starts after the all-star break, shooting 42 percent from the floor and 35 percent from three in that span.
