The Utah Jazz have expressed an interest in trading for Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, according to a report from ESPN.
Rubio has been the subject of trade rumors since the February trading deadline, and those talks only seem to have intensified lately.
Multiple sources have told Amico Hoops that the Jazz and Timberwolves have been two of the more aggressive teams this offseason. The Timberwolves have already obtained All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler from the Bulls, and are said to be looking to add more perimeter shooting to the roster.
Jazz have $16.0M of cap room that they can deploy to upgrade the roster between now and June 30th. https://t.co/qEEr5693mP

Rubio averaged 11.1 points and 9.1 points this past season, his first under coach Tom Thibodeau.
The Timberwolves reportedly are interested in signing either Derrick Rose, Kyle Lowry or Jrue Holiday this summer in free agency.
