After a disappointing and frustrating season in Utah, Brandon Rush knew he'd have to prove himself again.
He'll get a chance to do that Tuesday, when he free agent guard will work out for multiple teams on Tuesday in Las Vegas, his agent says.
Rush was coming off a devastating knee injury when he was traded to the Jazz from Golden State last summer. Rush made his season debut in November, but said later he wasn't ready mentally for the challenge.
He played in just 38 games and averaged 2.1 points with the Jazz.
"I press. I press a lot because I know I won’t be out there too long and I’ve got to try to make something happen," Rush said last season of performing with limited playing time. "Everything speeds up and I just play out of my comfort zone."
By season's end, he was out of coach Tyrone Corbin's rotation.
If the 29-year-old can return to his previous form, he could be a nice piece for a team. Rush is a career 40.9 percent shooter from 3.
