Sportando interviewed 5 Eyewitness journalist and 1500 ESPN contributor Darren Wolfson in order to know something more detailed about Timberwolves’ future after Kevin Love’s departure to Cleveland:

Next year’s starting five will likely be Rubio-Martin-Wiggins-Young-Pekovic. Can we say this is Rubio’s moment?

Rubio is on notice. The Wolves are trying to sign him to an extension, and so far his agent, Dan Fegan, is balking at the idea of a 4-year, $43 million deal. That’s plenty for a player of Rubio’s caliber. It’s a lot more than Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague makes — maybe a better player — and is what Golden State All-Star guard Stephen Curry makes. But Fegan is seeking the 5-year max. That’s not happening. The situation is pointing toward Rubio being a restricted free agent next summer. In other words, the 2014-2015 season is huge for Rubio.
