According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the Cavs and Rubio have already agreed to a 3-year, $18.4 million deal.

Following the severe injury, the Spanish point guard was traded at the deadline by the Cavs and ended up with the Indiana Pacers but his contract was mostly used as a filler in the trade for Caris LeVert.

Rubio tore the ACL in his left knee against the New Orleans Pelicans on December 28.

The 31-year-old athlete averaged 13.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 6.6 assists over 34 games in his first season with the Cavaliers.

The 11-year NBA veteran has career averages of 11.1 points and 7.6 assists in 665 duels (601 starts) with the Minnesota Timberwolves (2011-17, 2020-21), Utah Jazz (2017-19), Phoenix Suns (2019-20), and Cavaliers (2021-22).
