HoopsHype Brandon Rush rumors
Wednesday afternoon New England Patriots rising star tight end Aaron Hernandez, 23, was picked up from his North Attleborough home by Bristol County police and taken to the Bristol County District Court where he was later arraigned. Within 90-minutes of being picked up by the police, Hernandez was released by the Patriots. A short time later he faced the judge as the prosecution issued the charges against him. Murder … along with five gun-related charges. The arraignment was broadcast live on ESPN’s SportsCenter. Within moments, a few NBA players like Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry commented on the news via Twitter. SheridanHoops

General manager Bob Myers said he had cordial talks with Jackson daily about who might fit and reiterated that it didn’t make any sense to bring in a player to sit on the bench. There was some talk about guards Maalik Wayns and Chris Douglas-Roberts, forwards Josh Childress, Dominic McGuire and Chris Wright and center Mickell Gladness. But the Warriors agreed that Thomas was the right guy, because he’s a defense-first wing who is athletic enough to finish in transition – some of the very attributes the Warriors lost when Brandon Rush tore his anterior cruciate ligment in the season’s second game.
