The 27-year-old Rush appeared in 65 of 66 games last season after coming over in a trade from Indiana for Lou Amundson. He posted career highs by shooting 50 percent from the field and 79 percent on free throws, fitting seamlessly into coach Mark Jackson's system and staying steady despite a rash of injuries that shattered the roster.

Rush averaged 9.8 points and 3.9 rebounds in 26 minutes per game last season. He shot 45.2 percent from 3-point range — sixth-best in the NBA — and was Golden State's best option off the bench.

Rush was originally drafted 13th overall by Portland in 2008 after leading Kansas to the national championship. He was then traded to Indiana along with Jarrett Jack and Josh McRoberts for Jerryd Bayless and Ike Diogu.
