So...why did the Timberwolves pass on the defensive Hassan Whiteside? Rick Adelman had this to say yesterday during media day: "We didn't want to have a third big guy up front that was young and inexperienced."
Amundson is a big guy that is mainly a power forward, but because of his energy & hustle can play more center. He also provides the team with another veteran, bringing much more polish and experience than Hassan, obviously would.
As of right now, Amundson is penciled in as the third-string center behind Nikola Pekovic and Greg Stiemsma.
That's all for now, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
