The Utah Jazz are one of the teams interested in trading for Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The 26-year-old is reportedly on the market, something that makes sense given the Wolves’ need for shooting on their roster. Rubio has value as a player who has averaged 8.5 assists per game in his career, but he’s only a 37.5 percent shooter from the floor.

The Jazz have an outstanding free agent in point guard George Hill, but the rumored interest in Rubio may be unrelated. At this stage in his career, Rubio could be an ideal backup even if Utah were to retain Hill.
