Lou Amundson signs with the Timberwolves

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The Timberwolves frontcourt has gotten even more eclectic.

According to multiple outlets, free agent big man Lou Amundson will sign a one-year guaranteed deal with the Wolves. The deal is reportedly worth $1.1 million for the season.

Minnesota will be the 29-year-old's sixth team in seven years. Primarily a rebounding and energy player, Amundson had his most productive years with the Phoenix Suns.

With the Wolves, he'll likely fit in behind Nikola Pekovic and Greg Stiemsma to provide frontcourt depth. Amundson is a fairly athletic forward who can run the floor and should be able to contribute. He's a player who scores essentially only at the rim, but with Ricky Rubio running the show, he could add a few buckets.

With Indiana last season, Amundson appeared in 60 games, averaging 3.5 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
