Rush is shooting 3's at over 38% this year. That being said, those are all wide open attempts and his 2pt % is :-?

I hope nobody is expecting a team changer out of Casspi, but I do think he could be a nice complement to what we have now and probably be an upgrade over Rush headed into next year. That's not necessarily a super high bar to clear. Competent 3pt shooter, a little more rebounding and fewer blown lay-ups than Rush.

Best case scenario, he fits nicely here, uses the end of the season to familiarize himself with Thibs' system and comes back next year as the player some of us hoped Brandon Rush could be this year. Just a steady, competent player off the bench that allows some positional flexibility in the line-up.
Thriving on mediocrity since '89.

You do know Casspi isn't particularly good?

Yesterday he was pretty terrible, couldn't dribble the basketball without getting it stripped.

I mean Casspi's last season was a better season than any season of Rush's career, while this season was just plain weird for him and I wouldn't judge him based on it. Let's give him a bit larger sample size than his 1st game here, shall we?
