CSN Bay Area Insider Matt Steinmetz is reporting that the Golden State Warriors are close to resigning restricted free-agent Brandon Rush.

But that's not all.

According to Steinmetz, the Warriors are also "on the verge" of agreeing to a contract with power forward Carl Landry.

The news comes on the heels of an earlier personnel move that saw the Warriors come to terms with No. 35 pick Draymond Green on a three-year deal. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweeted the news about Green on July 30:

Golden State has reached agreement on a 3-year, $2.6M deal with Draymond Green, league source tells Y! Green was 35th pick in June draft.

Mark Bartelstein, who represents both Rush and Landry, is cited by Steinmetz as his source for the news, meaning the deal is all but done. It also makes sense from a timing perspective, since the Warriors essentially had to sign Green first. With that out of the way, Golden State was free to use up its remaining cap space on Rush and Landry.

If both deals get done, the Warriors' 15-man roster will be complete, and it apparently won't include former Warrior Dominic McGuire—a fan favorite for his defensive effort last season. Interestingly, McGuire is also represented by Bartelstein, who will now have to search elsewhere for a taker on McGuire.

The moves will cap an impressively shrewd offseason for the Warriors, who also traded for backup point guard Jarrett Jack and signed undrafted free-agent Kent Bazemore from their Summer League squad.
