He's supposed to be a Top 5 NBA Draft pick within the next year or two.

He beat out some NBA players, such as Sergio Rodriguez, to get on Spain's Olympic basketball roster for next month. And he's only 17 years old right now.

This kid is gonna be one hell of a PG in the future. Definitely looking a franchise type player.

Won't be easy seeing him at the NBA in the next couple of years.
He has a 6 million euro (approximately $9.5 million) buyout clause from his current club, Joventut Badalona.

Here's an interesting article from Hoopshype.com (don't you love that website?) about Rubio's situation:
