Tweet of the Day went to coach Mark Jackson for welcoming the newest member of the Golden State Warriors in Carl Landry, along with Brandon Rush, who has agreed to a two-year contract to stay with the team. Details of the Landry signing can be found here.
Rush averaged a career-high 9.8 points on 50.1 percent shooting and a robust 45.2 percent shooting from the three-point line last season, while playing the role of defensive specialist. With Dorell Wright out of the picture as the starting small forward, Rush could push for a starting role ahead of rookie Harrison Barnes for the upcoming season. Whichever role Rush may end up with, the Warriors did well (once again) in signing the four-year veteran, who will provide much-needed depth and defense at the wing position.
