Warriors, Rush agree to new deal

AP

OAKLAND, California — Brandon Rush is back where he wanted to be all along.

Rush agreed to an $8 million, two-year deal Tuesday to stay with the Golden State Warriors after becoming the team's most reliable reserve last season. Rush's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said the second year of the contract is a player option. The deal is pending a physical that Rush will take in the next few days.

"He's thrilled," Bartelstein said. "He had a terrific season with the Warriors. He loves playing for Mark Jackson and he made it clear to me from the beginning of free agency that this is where he wanted to be."

The signing highlights a busy two days for Golden State's front office.

The Warriors agreed to sign free agent power forward Carl Landry — also represented by Bartelstein — on Monday. That deal is also worth about $8 million over two years with a player option for the second season.
