The Minnesota Timberwolves are actively shopping point guard Ricky Rubio in trade proposals, league sources told The Vertical.

The Timberwolves have attached Rubio to multiple offers with Shabazz Muhammad to several teams around the NBA, league sources said. Minnesota has been seeking something of a “bridge” guard in return, a player capable of starting in the short term, but who’ll ultimately settle into a backup role and give way to rookie Kris Dunn to become the long-term starter, league sources said.

The Sacramento Kings have had a strong interest in acquiring Rubio, but there’s no traction on a deal between those two teams, league sources said. So far, the Timberwolves are trying to exhaust the market elsewhere for a better return of assets than the Kings can offer.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers believes the NBA should expand its All-Star rosters to 15 players on each side. “I wish the league would go to 15,” Rivers said, prior to Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. “Whatever we dress [in regular games], we should have All-Stars.”

Rivers, like many players, coaches and fans also believes that the upcoming All-Star Game draft between captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry should be televised. As an added bonus, Rivers also believes that the league’s coaches’ vote should be made public as well.
