Warriors GM Wants to Keep Rush

Warriors general manager Bob Myers on Friday said the team is unequivocal in its intention to keep restricted free-agent swingman Brandon Rush and will explore bringing Brandon Roy to Oakland for his attempted comeback.
Rush was the Warriors’ best reserve last season, when he averaged 9.8 points on 45.2 percent three-point shooting and was a consistent rebounder and defender. He has been given a qualifying offer for about $4.1 million that allows the Warriors to match any offer sheet he signs with an opposing team.
The Warriors had been vocal about liking Rush and wanting to find a way to keep him, but Myers took it further, saying, “We’re going to keep him.”
