Former Jazzman Brandon Rush returning to the Warriors after agreeing to 2-year deal
OAKLAND, Calif. — Brandon Rush and the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a two-year contract.
Agent Mark Bartelstein says Rush will hold the option in the second year of the deal.
Rush was Golden State's top reserve during the 2011-12 season before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the team's 2012-13 home opener. He was traded to Utah last summer as part of a salary-shedding move that allowed the Warriors to sign Andre Iguodala.
Rush played just 38 games for the Jazz last season after returning from that devastating knee injury. He held a workout for teams in Las Vegas recently before signing with the Warriors, who had pursued Rush from the start of free agency July 1.
Rush has averaged 8.3 and 3.3 rebounds in six seasons.
