The Golden State Warriors are close to signing restricted free agent Brandon Rush and free agent Carl Landry, reports CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Steinmetz.

The 27-year-old Rush averaged 9.8 points per game last season, his first with the Warriors. He was a key part of the team’s rotation off the bench, and Steinmetz reports that re-signing the small forward has been a priority this offseason.

The 28-year-old Landry averaged 12.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game with the New Orleans Hornets last season. His best season came in 2009-10 when he averaged 16.8 points per game while playing for the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings.
