Brandon Rush struggled — at first with his knee, still mending after a season-ending ACL tear the year before, and then with his mind as he got lost in the Jazz’s rotation. Now the 29-year-old is getting a do-over in the last place he tasted basketball success. Rush on Wednesday agreed to terms with the Golden State Warriors, where he played from 2011-13.
