Heard rumble tonight Pels on verge of re-signing Lou Amundson; agent Mark Bartelstein just confirmed vet F indeed headed back to New Orleans— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) November 12, 2013
Amundson was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers before the start of the regular season. He spent time in New Orleans last season, with stints in Minnesota and Chicago as well. The Pelicans have been reluctant to give Jeff Withey or Arinze Onuaku minutes, so Amundson should give them some insurance while Ryan Anderson remains out with a broken toe.
New Orleans has 15 players under contract, so a player will have to be waived before this deal is official. The most obvious candidate is the aforementioned Onuaku.
