PG of the future: Ricky Rubio?

As I'm sure many of you are aware, Minnesota is sometimes cold and dreary during the NBA season.  Surprisingly, the Spaniard Ricky Rubio has also become acquainted with this astonishing fact.  And when you combine the great weather in Minnesota with the great overall talent on the roster and the great GM in David Kahn, Rubio has supposedly said no thanks to playing in Minnesota.

So, the question is, would the Pistons be interested in acquiring Rubio?  He was at one time billed as the next big thing, and "fell" to the Timberwolves at the number five overall pick when Steph Curry and a bunch of other great young PGs were still on the board.  His trade value, however has decreased as he seems to think that he is LeBron James and his production in Spain has not been exactly what the T-Wolves were hoping for when they drafted him.  

Rubio certainly still has potential.  He could be a Rajon Rondo-like player for the Pistons.  However, the Pistons are still missing the Ray Allen Paul Pierce, and KG in this equation.  

The Pistons hopefully don't have their PG of the future on their roster today.  T-Mac will likely not be on the team next year, but even if he is, he is not the future.  Stuckey has proven to not be  PG.  Will Bynum is a good backup.  Terrico White is likely just a Stuckey clone.  There are going to be some PGs in the draft such as Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving, and Brandon Knight, but none of them would be a guarantee.  So, it probably makes sense to inquire about Rubio's availability, but there are two main concerns: 1.  How much is it going to take to get Rubio out of Minnesota and in Detroit?  2.  Does Rubio view Detroit as any different than Minnesota?  For discussion purposes, we will have to assume that he would like to come to Detroit, unless anyone has any insider information otherwise.  So, what would you give up for Rubio?
