Agent: Timberwolves agree with Brandon Rush, 1-year, $3.5M

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The agent for Brandon Rush says he has agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports says Rush came to agreement with the Timberwolves on Wednesday. He gives them some much-needed shooting off the bench.

Rush averaged 4.2 points in 72 games for the Golden State Warriors last season. He has overcome some serious knee issues to resume his career and has shot 40 percent from 3-point range in eight seasons.

The Timberwolves badly needed to add a shooter to a team that was near the bottom of the league in 3-point field goals and attempts last season.

Rush is the second signing of a quiet summer for the Timberwolves. They added center Cole Aldrich on Monday.
