Rush Tandem Not To Be In Indiana

As was widely suspected in the first place, it looks like Larry Legend doesn't make player personnel moves simply for the sake of bringing families together.

As reported by the Inquirer's Kate Fagan:

The 76ers have reached an agreement with free-agent guard Kareem Rush.

Terms of the deal were not known.

Rush played last season with the Indiana Pacers, averaging 8.3 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. He also shot 38.9 percent from the three-point line. Last season, the Sixers were last in the league in three-point shooting.

So free agent Kareem won't be returning to Indiana to unite with rookie brother Brandon.

While it would have been a nice story for the brothers to have played together, it bears noting that the two attend rival universities Kansas (Brandon) and Missouri (Kareem), so perhaps it simply wasn't meant to be.

In the meantime, the elder Rush should be a good addition to a Philly team that will be looking for some instant offense off the bench.  Kareem Rush can get on the floor and fill it up a bit, particularly from the outside, and he will also provide some veteran playoff experience (from his days with the Lakers) when the stretch run comes.  Presuming that this wasn't all that expensive a move for the Sixers, Rush looks to be a nice addition.
