Rush, 30, appeared in 72 games for the Golden State Warriors last season with a scoring average of 4.2 points.
He’s a 40 percent career 3-point shooter.
Per the AP:
Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports says Rush came to agreement with the Timberwolves on Wednesday. He gives them some much-needed shooting off the bench.
The Timberwolves badly needed to add a shooter to a team that was near the bottom of the league in 3-point field goals and attempts last season.
Rush is the second signing of a quiet summer for the Timberwolves. They added center Cole Aldrich on Monday.
