Basketball star Ricky Rubio returns to Barcelona

Ricky Rubio, the seasoned basketball player, has made a surprising comeback after he signed a short-term contract with Barcelona just a month after announcing the conclusion of his 12-year NBA career. 

The 33-year-old player, who took a break from the sport to address mental health issues, has agreed to a deal spanning the remainder of the season.

In an official statement, Barcelona mentioned Rubio will return to action when he feels ready.

Rubio's basketball journey is noteworthy when it comes to his experience in international basketball games.

Initially drafted in the first round by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2009, Rubio opted to stay in Spain and played two seasons at Barcelona before transitioning to the NBA.

The basketball star has won two Olympic medals with Spain, a silver in Beijing in 2008 and a bronze in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The unexpected return of Ricky Rubio to Barcelona has excited fans and the basketball community.
