MIN Shooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’6, 220 lbs; 10th year, Kansas 

 NBA Role: shooter • Salty DOG

Veteran swingman Brandon Rush is back (healthy) – he now faces a new challenge on a young Timberwolves squad; solid shooter and scorer off the bench – Rush is a blackbelt in corner 3s, drives hard after closeouts; great team player who earned his championship ring in 2014-15 by helping establish a winning culture in Golden State (before the glory); after a couple knee injuries, B. Rush is finally starting to resemble a two-way wing once again – still available to defend and hit open 3s when necessary; much like his haircut, Rush’s demeanor is constant: never too high, never too low; Keith Bogans-type role under Tom Thibodeau?

Signature Shot: ‘loaded up’ corner 3
