Golden State Warriors Re-Sign Brandon Rush To Two-Year, $8 Million Deal

According to a report form ESPN.com, the Golden State Warriors have re-signed Brandon Rush to a two-year $8 million contract on Tuesday, bringing back one of the brightest spots of their 2011-12 campaign.

Rush, 27, averaged 9.8 points and 3.9 rebounds in 26 minutes a game last year for Golden State, shooting an impressive 45.2 percent from downtown. That was the sixth best mark from 3-point land in the NBA last season. He also had career-high marks in field goal percentage (50 percent) and from the charity stripe (79 percent).

Golden State extended a qualifying offer to Rush back on June 26 to make him a restricted free agent. The tender allowed the team to match any offer Rush received this summer, though that has become a moot point.

The four-year veteran out of the University of Kansas was selected 13th overall in the 2008 draft by the Portland Trailblazers.
