Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves waived Lou Amundson on February 8th to make room for swingman Mickael Gelabale & big man Chris Johnson, after their 10-day contracts expired.
He was out of work for a while, but eventually landed in Chicago on March 2nd and signed a 10-day contract with the Chicago Bulls. With injuries to some of the Chicago big men, they were looking for some backup. During his 10-day contract, he was available for five games and only played 2 minutes in a blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
The Bulls were prepared to sign him to a second 10-day contract, but he decided instead to sign a rest-of-the-season deal with the New Orleans Hornets. He should certainly get some playing time in NOLA as they have just four big men under contract (Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, Robin Lopez & Jason Smith) and only three healthy big men--Jason Smith is out for the season after undergoing surgery on his shoulder that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
I think it's fair to say, he should definitely get some solid playing time--likely as the team's backup center.
The Wolves will face the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday at the Target Center for their fourth and final meeting.
