Fresh off signing his 2-year, $8 million deal with the Golden State Warriors, swingman Brandon Rush spoke with CSN Bay Area's Matt Steinmetz about what he expects in the upcoming year, and certainly didn't beat around the bush.
Rush was straight and to the point when talking about what his goals are for the upcoming season, noting that being a starter is what he is striving for:
"I'm coming in trying to get that starting job at the three spot," Rush said. "I've been working hard the whole, entire summer to build up on that."
Between himself, rookie Harrison Barnes and veteran Richard Jefferson, it would seem that the playoff-tested Jefferson would fit the bill best as the starting No. 3. As the best player of the bench last year, coach Mark Jackson might choose to keep him in the sixth man role, but Rush is willing and ready for the competition, hungry to earn himself a spot in the starting rotation.
