CSN reports that Louis Amundson is within a week of making his final decision, with the Warriors being the frontrunner on his list. This could be great news for us. Amundson is not a center, but he provides the team with defense and hustle. Also, the Warriors will find themselves in good position to make a trade around the all-star break, with two large expiring contracts. Fortunately, that should be the time when Udoh will be cleared to play. I'm not saying we should trade Amundson or Udoh before the deadline if we do in fact land Louis, but it gives our team much flexibility during that period, and either one of those guys could improve negotiations involving a player like Ellis.
