I know that many seem to hope we sign Amundson this week, and I'm not opposed myself if at a reasonable price. Nevertheless, even if we sign him we seem pretty thin at the 5 (with Udoh out, and Andris and Wright's injury histories). If we don't sign Amundson (and perhaps even if we do), who else might we look at as an inexpensive FA acquisition down low?
What about Dwayne Jones of the D-League? Is there something wrong with his game or attitude that he hasn't stuck in the NBA yet? I know that he's already 27, but he appears to have developed an astounding rebound skill in the past 2 years (16 rpg last season) to go with solid shooting and block numbers (17.6ppg, fg%.598, ft%.667, 1.8bpg). Actually he was a pretty great rebounder and shot blocker back in college at St. Joseph's too. Having not seen him play much (saw a few Toros games last year), I assume there's some reason the Suns cut him after the playoffs and more recently the Raptors this month? Just wondering as his numbers are truly gaudy, particularly in some useful areas for the Warriors.
So...if anyone knows more about Dwayne Jones or would like to opine about other worthwhile free agent bigs, I'd love to see the discussion!
