The Bulls signed F/C Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season on Thursday.

He's a big body that will be used for defensive purposes in the playoffs, but it's hard to see him doing much in the regular season, or playoffs.
Apr 10 - 11:52 AM

The Bulls are rumored to be interested in signing Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season.

They're getting ready to make a run in the playoffs and Amundson would give them a big body to foul the likes of Roy Hibbert, Mason Plumlee and Udonis Haslem.
Apr 10 - 10:18 AM

The Pelicans have waived Lou Amundson.

He was extraneous with Alexis Ajinca playing well and the Pelicans' key PF/Cs healthy, with the exception of Jason Smith's sore knee. The veteran big man may latch on with another team but he's not a fantasy asset.

Lou Amundson, who signed with the Pelicans on Tuesday, played eight minutes and had three points, three rebounds and a block later that night in his debut.

He was so fresh the team didn't even have his name sewn on his jersey by game time, so he played incognito. Greg Stiemsma left tonight's game with a potentially serious knee injury, which could mean Amundson will get 10 minutes per game going forward. But that's not enough run for him to be owned in any fantasy league.

Louis Amundson has signed a deal to join the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Pelican are depleted at their power forward spot behind Anthony Davis, so Amundson may play as soon as Tuesday night. Amundson, however, isn't worth a second thought for fantasy owners as he will compete with Arinze Onuaku for backup minutes and Ryan Anderson will be back soon to push both further down the depth chart.

The Pelicans are close to signing free agent Lou Amundson to a contract.

It makes sense since they don't have much at power forward behind superstar Anthony Davis and he was with them for 18 games last season. Arinze Onuaku has been Davis' backup, so he would be Amundson's biggest competition for minutes. Plus, Ryan Anderson will be back, so there's little reason to add the Lunatic in any format.

The Los Angeles Clippers waived F Lou Amundson on Friday.

The Clippers roster now stands at 14 players.
Sat, Oct 26, 2013 11:12:00 AM

Lou Amundson is expected to work out with the Clippers for training camp.

The Lunatic has been rumored to be joining a number of teams for most of the summer, but the Clippers look to have landed another end-of-the-bench body. Amundson played 39 games with three different teams last year and is no lock to make the team. He has no fantasy value.

Free agent PF Lou Amundson still hasn't signed with an NBA team, but his agent says he's getting closer.

Mark Bartlestein says both the Lakers and Clippers are interested in the big man, and that we should have an answer within a week. However, we basically reported the same thing way back on Aug. 9, so it's anyone's guess as to when we'll know where Amundson will be playing this year. Not that it matters in terms of fantasy.

Lou Amundson is hoping to make a decision on signing with a team next week.

He basically had to wait for Greg Oden to sign, but now he's one of the better veteran-minimum big men left on the market. The Knicks are among teams that are interested, but the Lunatic would need an injury or two to his prospective team to see regular minutes.
Fri, Aug 9, 2013 12:49:00 PM

Unrestricted free agent Louis Amundson is drawing interest from the Heat, Kings, Mavs, Hawks, Knicks and Pacers.

The Greg Oden domino will likely fall first, then teams still needing depth could look at Amundson. The Lunatic played one game with the Bulls and 20 with the Wolves last year. He almost certainly won't be in any rotation to start the season.
Fri, Aug 2, 2013 12:33:00 PM

Free agent PF Louis Amundson is not expected to re-sign with the Pelicans.

A poor man's Reggie Evans, Amundson averaged 2.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 18 appearances with New Orleans this season. He's now played for eight different organizations since breaking into the league in 2006. Amundson will likely have to settle for another non-guaranteed contract in 2013-14.

Hornets sign F Louis Amundson for the rest of the season.

Amundson turned down a second 10-day contract with the Bulls to get some real minutes in New Orleans. The team will not renew the 10-day contract of Henry Sims.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 11:03:00 AM

Lou Amundson will sign with the Hornets for the rest of the season once his 10-day contract with the Bulls expires on Monday.

Amundson could have re-signed with the Bulls, but he hasn't cracked the rotation and might have a better chance at minutes in New Orleans now that Jason Smith (shoulder) is done for the season. He's not a fantasy option.
