Former Warrior Brandon Rush joins the BIG3

Did the Warriors ruin that league, too?

Former Golden State Warriors wing Brandon Rush is joining the BIG3 basketball league. The professional 3-on-3, halfcourt league announced that Rush joined the draft pool for its third season.

Rush played in four seasons with the Warriors over two stints. He was a part of the team that won a championship in 2015, as well as the record-setting 73-win team in 2015-16.

In 172 games with the Warriors, the athletic wing averaged 5.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the arc.

He last played in the 2016-17 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He tried to make an NBA return last year when he signed a 10-day contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, but his contract expired without him seeing the court.

Rush is just one of many former Warriors to try the BIG3, joining Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, Al Harrington, and Corey Maggette.

We’ll see if he gets drafted. Either way, we’ll always have this:
