Pacers send Rush to Golden State for Amundson

Posted Dec 19 2011 6:52PM

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors have completed a trade sending forward Lou Amundson to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for guard Brandon Rush.

The teams announced the trade Monday.

Rush averaged 8.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in three seasons for the Pacers. Indiana considered him a part of the core group of young players, but the team eventually added enough talent at his position to make him expendable.

Rush showed great potential at times but also found trouble. He was suspended for five games last season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Amundson has averaged 4.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in five seasons, primarily with Philadelphia, Phoenix and Golden State. He has shot 52 percent from the field for his career.
