Warriors Re-Sign Restricted Free Agent Brandon Rush
Four-Year Veteran Is Coming Off His Finest NBA Season In 2011-12

The Golden State Warriors have re-signed restricted free agent guard/forward Brandon Rush, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.

Rush, 27, appeared in 65 games (one start) last season with Golden State, averaging a career-high 9.8 points to go with 3.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 26.4 minutes per game, while shooting career-highs of 50.1% from the field, 45.2% from three-point range and 79.3% from the free throw line. Rush ranked sixth in the NBA in three-point percentage and posted the fifth-best single-season percentage from long range in Warriors franchise history. The 6’6” swingman became the first Golden State player to connect on at least 50% of his field goal attempts and 45% of his three-point attempts since Chris Mullin did so in 1992-93 and joins teammate Stephen Curry and Kyle Korver as the only three players in the NBA that have shot better than 41% from three-point range in each of the last three seasons.

Acquired by Golden State from the Indiana Pacers on December 19, 2011, in exchange for forward Lou Amundson, Rush was the 13th overall selection of the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2008 NBA Draft before having his draft rights traded to Indiana. The Kansas City, MO, native has appeared in 289 career games, averaging 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 26.9 minutes per game in four seasons with the Pacers and Warriors. In five playoff contests in 2010-11, Rush averaged 3.2 points and 1.4 rebounds over 11.0 minutes per game.
