Pacers Trade Former Kansas Star Brandon Rush To Golden State Warriors

Former Kansas standout Brandon Rush is on the move again in the NBA, moving from the Indiana Pacers who have reportedly traded him to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for forward Louis Amundson.

Rush averaged 9.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game last season and is primarily a three-point threat off of the bench. Amundson brings some beef to the Pacers frontcourt.

Sam Amick writes, "Amundson — who will be playing for his sixth team in six seasons — played just 46 games last season due to injury, averaging 4.4 points, four rebounds and 15 minutes. He was expected to play a significant role in the rotation of first-year Warriors coach Mark Jackson, but will now use his defensive-minded ways for second-year Pacers coach Frank Vogel.

"Rush is a capable defender who should be able to add some offense for the Warriors as well, as the fourth-year player who was taken 13th overall by Portland in 2008 out of Kansas averaged 9.1 points and 26.1 minutes in 67 games last season while shooting just 42.1 percent."
