Warriors to sign forward Louis Amundson to 2-year, $4.7 million deal, his agent told Y! Sports. Second year player option.
Warriors fans have been begging for more depth up front ever since the news broke about Udoh's injury, and at the top of most people's wish-list was Louis Amundson. He's been on the Warrior's radar ever since he played on the team's Summer League squad a couple years back. He played pretty well back then too, so well that he landed a spot with the Suns. Playing for the Suns the last two seasons he's shown that he can be a valuable asset coming off the bench in this league. He's a scrappy player that rebounds the ball well, and can protect the rim. His offense isn't anything to write home about, but it looks like he's learned to pick his spots and not waste offensive possessions. Overall, I think it's a great signing that should make a difference, especially early in the season while Udoh is healing up. Jump for some details from Matt Steinmetz over at CSNBayArea.
Power forward Louis Amundson, arguably the NBA's top remaining unsigned free agent with just two weeks left before training camps open, has agreed to a new deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to his representative.
