Brandon Rush
SG, 6’6, 220lbs, 31 years old, 9 years of experience

Received over 1000 minutes only to do very little in them. Shot 73 two-pointers and 18 foul shots all season, and although the 114 three-point attempts went in at 38.6%, Rush’s decent catch-and-shoot game belies the fact that he cannot (and does not) shoot off the dribble, and nor does he do much to get open off of the ball other than just stand in the corner and wait for a Rubio skip-pass. A scoring threat has to be threaten-ing. Defensively, Rush did OK, but in being much less of an athlete than he was, there are better three-and-D options out there. Rush now shines at neither, and does nothing in between.

Player Plan: Expiring $3.5 million contract. Rush is a minimum salary contract player only hereafter, and perhaps not even that.
