BARCELONA, Spain -- Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio says he will consider playing for his former team Barcelona if the NBA season is cancelled due to the ongoing lockout.

Rubio told Catalan radio ONA FM that "I want to wait until I see there is no chance of resolving the situation, and then I will sign with another team."

Rubio said that he would contact Barcelona to see if he could practice with the team while the lockout continues, like Los Angeles Lakers centre Pau Gasol and his brother Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Rubio said "it would be nice to practice and play with the Gasols on Barca."

The Timberwolves drafted the 21-year-old Spaniard in 2009, but Rubio chose to stay in Spain before finally moving to the U.S. this summer.
