Comments Off on Timberwolves Want Ricky Rubio To Become Better Shooter, Scorer

Ricky Rubio is the consummate floor general.  He can pass, see the play before it happens, and he’s becoming a pretty good leader.

Rubio though is not that polished of a shooter or scorer.  He shot 34% from midrange, and barely over 40% from within eight feet.

The T’Wolves and Flip Saunders love their floor general, but according to Fox Sports, would like “Rubio to become a better shooter, and scorer.”

“That’s his next step in the evolution of the point guard position,” recently hired Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders told KFAN 100.3. “Being a bigger scoring threat, being able to knock down shots, which will make the game much more easier for him.”
