With a simple little tweet this afternoon, Mike Wells removed all the suspense that we had regarding Brandon Rush heading into Halloween. (Thanks to boombaby for letting me know about the deadline being Monday, but I think it’s more fun to go with the Halloween metaphor.)
I don’t think this is much of a surprise. Brandon still has a long way to go, but he is a good defensive player and fits in with the rest of the youth movement. Picking up his option – well – it keeps the Pacers’ options open.
