The FIBA World Cup games are over. One of the newest Suns, Ricky Rubio, will soon be joining the team in the Valley with a Gold Medal, a member of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 All-Star 5 and tournament MVP honors. He’s also now the all-time leader in assists in the history of the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
He averaged 16.4 points, 6 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals and shot 38.7% from three (1.5/3.9) in 26.3 minutes per game.
After two seasons of playing without a starting caliber point guard, the Suns should benefit greatly from adding Rubio’s skills to their backcourt.
