Free agent guard Ricky Rubio is nearing a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, via Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

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.
