LAS VEGAS — The Warriors are among the teams scheduled to attend a workout for free agent guard Brandon Rush, who tore an ACL while with the team in 2012 before playing in 38 games for Utah last season.
The Warriors at this time can afford minimum contracts due to salary cap constraints, but could look to bring Rush back to the team after he averaged 9.7 points and 3.8 rebounds in 67 games with Golden State before getting injured.
“Rush was great,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers told KNBR on Monday. “Everybody that’s been a fan saw how good he was for us, so if he’s healthy, and he can play, which we hear he can — we’ll go watch him and see — it’s a good addition if we could get him.
“You don’t know what the price would be, but we like Brandon.”
Myers, who said he would like to sign two more players, is also interested in bringing back center Jermaine O’Neal.
“We like those two guys because we know ‘em a little bit,” Myers said. “We’ve had them in the organization. It’s nice to bring back players that you know and have been around.
“Both those guys are great guys.”
