Chris Tomasson: Source just told me that will Lou Amundson will sign with Minnesota. Twitter

Chris Tomasson: Source tells me Lou Amundson to sign a 1-year guaranteed deal for minimum, bit disappointed he didn't get more. Twitter

off of hoopshype.com...seeing that he agreed to sign for the minimum afterall, i'm a little dissapointed that he didnt give more consideration to the knicks...i thought he would of been a good fit here

He's a good big body to have. T'Wolves made some nice moves this off-season.

agreed on both accounts PacersForLife... i thought his hustle and offensive rebounding would of been great off the bench for us...the combination of him and marcus camby in the 2nd unit would of been a SUPERB offensive rebounding duo and would of created a whole lot of 2nd chance opportunities

Rubio/Luke Ridnour/JJ Barea
Brandon Roy/ Chase Budinger
Andrei Kirilenko/Derrick Williams
Kevin Love/Lou Amundson
Nikola Pekovic/Greg Stiesma

not a bad squad...stiesma is a bum IMO but between him/Love/Amundson/and Pekovic they should be able to hold their own at the 5 spot...should be a fun team to watch assuming roy stays healthy which is a big question mark

Not just white guys - Europeans. Just another reminder that the rest of the world is catching up.

The Wolves will be fun to watch this year. If health remains (with not only Roy but Rubio coming back strong in December) - this team is playoff bound.

lol disappointed he didn't get more? Does he realize we're getting close to camp? If anyone wanted to overspend on him, it would have happend months ago. Everyone and their brother knew he was getting the min.
Be happy you're in the NBA.

Now that that's out of the way. I do like him a lot and hope he finds success there. I miss the guy in Phoenix and the Wolves fans will love his effort. When watching the Suns' "behind the scenes" stuff, there were always fun stories involving him.

As a Wolves fan, the last few years I have watched our backup bigs give minimal effort, pout, and play with no energy. With Cunningham, Stiemsma, Amundson, and Williams, at least that won't be the case this season.

I like the signing, it brings in another player that will enter the season with a role he understands. The last few years, we have just thrown young talent out there to see if anyone would emerge. Stability is hitting the roster finally.

I heard he attended Mark Madsen's clinic this summer on towel waiving, so I am pretty confident it will be rock solid.

You have to carry at least 13 players, and up to 15.

Amundson is a high energy hustle guy. Horrible free throw shooter, but has a decent shotput kinda shot in the paint. He's not a good man defender (mostly because he was asked to play center at 6'7") but the guy can block a lot of shots. Think Birdman without the tats or mohawk. Or FBI investigations.

Birdman is a better defender though...other than that i'd agree

I think in your posts, you are overvaluing Amundson a bit. Love will primarily be backed up by Cunningham and Dwill.

absolutely not. Our bench with Cunningham, Amundson, and Stiemsma will never be outworked by any opposing teams bench.

The skill of those backup bigs leaves a bit to be desired, but loose ball will go to the wolves.

if they played 82 games where the winner was, "who had the sweatiest bench", the Wolves would probably fight for a sweet seed.

Rooting for the underdog doesn't make you racist
