Wisdom doesn't grow on trees. Nor does it seem to run in the Rush family. I suppose I should reserve judgment until the deed is done, but here's hoping that he has better luck than JaRon:
Brandon Rush, a 6-foot-6 athletic swingman at Mount Zion Academy (N.C.), will declare for the NBA Draft.
Rush's mother, Glenda, confirmed the decision with CBS SportsLine.com and said her son will make an announcement before Saturday's deadline.
He is the younger brother of Charlotte Bobcats guard Kareem Rush and former NBA player JaRon Rush. Brandon is from Kansas City and spent this past season at Mount Zion.
Rush has not committed to a college and has until June 21 to withdraw from the NBA Draft -- as long as he doesn't sign with an agent.
