The rising star of spanish basketball, Ricky Rubio is suing the club of Badalona asking for the buy-out clause of his contract to be reduced according to tubasket.com. The lawyer of Rubio visited the administration of the club back in April asking to reduce the buy-out clause of Rubio's contract. The amount is estimated to be 6 million euros and the case that the player is making is that his initial salary when he first signed the contract was 70,000 euros. The 2 amounts are significantly disproportional.
Currently Rubio is to make 125,000 euros in the next season but the extremely high buy-out clause might cause a problem to the player's wish to move to the NBA after the Draft selection on the 25th of this June. Now the player and the club are locked into a legal battle and the outcome could go either way.
