Report: Golden State Warriors sign Brandon Rush to two-year deal


The Golden State Warriors have agreed to a two-year deal worth $2.5 million with guard Brandon Rush, reports Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Rush will have a player option after the first year. 

It will be Rush's second stint in Golden State, where he played from 2011-13. Rush, a career 40.9 percent three-point shooter, will give the Warriors another shooter to play with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who reportedly will not be included in any Kevin Love trade offer. 

Rush is trying to resurrect his career after tearing his left ACL two games into the 2012-13 season. He missed the remainder of that year, and played just 38 games with the Utah Jazz last season. For his career, he has averaged 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
