OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Golden State Warriors and swingman Brandon Rush have completed the deal they agreed to last week.
The Warriors announced Rush’s signing Tuesday.
The contract is for two years and about $2.5 million. Rush will hold the option in the second year of the deal.
Rush was Golden State’s top reserve and best perimeter defender during the 2011-12 season before tearing two ligaments in his left knee in the team’s 2012-13 home opener. He was traded to Utah last summer as part of a salary-shedding move.
Rush played just 38 games for the Jazz after returning from that devastating knee injury. He has averaged 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in six seasons.
