Pacers Trade Brandon Rush To Warriors For Louis Amundson, According To Report

In what will surely prove to be the most important move of the 2011 NBA free agency period, the Indiana Pacers have agreed to trade Brandon Rush to the Golden State Warriors for Louis Amundson, according to Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick.

Rush gives the Warriors another guard who can back up shooters Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry, though he has been no better than merely solid through his NBA career. Amundson could be another hard-working forward for a Pacers team that has been stocking up on them with Tyler Hansbrough, Jeff Pendergraph, and new signing David West.

Rush will be playing for his second NBA team, joining the Warriors after three seasons in Indiana. Amundson is significantly better-traveled: the Pacers will be his sixth team, and he will be beginning his sixth NBA season.
