NBA Scouting Reports, Central Division (Part Two)
April 29, 2008

Overview: A pure shooter who can do some other things on the floor when given an opportunity. Has decent physical tools across the board. Can really heat up from the outside. Doesn’t always get going from the outside, and can be streaky. Won’t create his own shot very often. Not very intense on the defensive end. Put up huge scoring shooting numbers in three seasons at Missouri. Has had his share of issues in the locker room. Doesn’t show an ideal work ethic. Will need to produce to find suitors as a free agent this offseason. Older Brother JaRon never made it in the League. Younger brother Brandon is a junior at Kansas.

Offense: Gets about a third of his offense as a spot up shooter. Will float out the perimeter for shots in transition as well. Good catch and shoot player. Fluid stroke. Adequate ball handler. Not fancy. Tends to drive to the right. Likes to pull up instead of going to the rim. Rather effective off the dribble. Moves pretty well without the ball. Gets some easy baskets at the rim. Not very consistent from the foul line. Won’t create his own shot for the most part. Doesn’t crash the glass. Decent passer. Will turn the ball over from time to time. Can really help his team when if he hits his first shot. Heats up in a hurry.

Defense: Very average defensively. Won’t always get in a good stance. Tends to take some plays off. Will make an athletic play occasionally. Better at covering shorter players than bigger forwards. Will never be asked to guard the best perimeter player on the floor. Could stand to give a better effort on the defensive end to augment his offensive skills.

The Top Overseas Free Agents on the 2007 Market (Part One)
July 3, 2007

After surprisingly being cut from Charlotte’s roster (implied as due to poor work habits) before the season started, Rush also could not cut it in Seattle’s training camp either. The former first round pick hung out for a month and then signed to play in Lithuania for Lietuvos Rytas, a fairly wealthy team who won the ULEB Cup in 2005. Rush helped lead them back to the Finals of the ULEB Cup once again, but the team came up short losing to Real Madrid. Rush regardless sparkled in seven games of action in the competition, putting up 16 points per game on 46% shooting from behind the arc. His numbers in the Lithuanian and Baltic Leagues were more modest, but this was widely considered a successful season for the former Missouri product. His outside shooting stroke will be attractive on the free agent market this summer for a team that only has the minimum at their disposal. In fact, he’s rumored to be close to signing in Indiana.
