Amundson, who worked out for Cleveland a few weeks ago, appeared in 18 games last year with the New Orleans Pelicans. The former UNLV Runnin’ Rebel averaged 2.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game with New Orleans.
Amundson is a hustle player who guarantees energy and ferocity off the bench. Amundson spent two seasons in Phoenix with Cavaliers GM David Griffin, including the 2009-10 season when Phoenix made it to the Western Conference Finals. Amundson was an important part of Phoenix’s success, averaging a career high 4.7 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.
Lou Amundson averages 3.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game for his NBA career.
