Evan Hagen of Howlin’ T-Wolf. I agree with Evan’s argument on Rubio, but I will take it a step further: he is the most underappreciated Wolves player of all time.

Kris Dunn was going to step in, have an immediately impact and relegate Rubio, if he was still around, to the bench. Unfortunately, he failed to live up to the hype that was generated when he was drafted with the 5th overall pick.
