Phoenix Suns Interested in Brandon Rush

Kansas swingman Brandon Rush entered as clearly the best prospect in the weekend’s group, which featured players who could go anywhere from the middle of the first round to the second round. Rush enhanced that standing, showing off his shooting and defense that comes with a long 6-foot-6 frame.

Rush played in a group that had him competing with swingmen Gary Forbes of Massachusetts, Courtney Lee of Western Kentucky and Bill Walker of Kansas State.

Of those who worked out in Oakland, Rush headlined a quartet of possible picks for Phoenix to consider at No. 15 along with Rider power forward Jason Thompson, Florida power forward Marreese Speights and French swingman Nicolas Batum. [AZ Central]
