Originally selected by Portland in the first round (#13) of the 2008 NBA Draft, Rush was acquired by Indiana via trade on July 9, 2008. He has appeared in 224 regular-season games during his three-year career, averaging 8.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per contest. In 2009-10, he appeared in all 82 games (64 starts) for Indiana and averaged career highs in points (9.4), rebounds (4.2), assists (1.4) and minutes (30.4).
