We told you on Thursday it was getting close, some team was going to sign reserve forward Louis Amundson as an energy guy for the rest of the season.

That team appears to be the Chicago Bulls, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

The Chicago Bulls are in talks with Louis Amundson about signing the veteran power forward, according to league sources.

A decision is expected Friday, sources told ESPN.com, with the Bulls and Amundson’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, scheduled to talk about specifics.

This is likely a 10-day contract, at least to start. It will probably become official over the weekend.

Bulls fans, know this is not a game changer. The Minnesota Timberwolves — without Kevin Love at forward — waived him. But he is a six-year veteran who brings a lot of energy to a limited role off the bench. You don’t question his hustle. And that’s something the Bulls may feel they need as they look for some frontcourt depth.

    This is the move that will take the Bulls past Miami. As a Bulls fan I’m so pumped. This is all total sarcasm…

    Tom Thibodeau and Bulls management have a case of Rex Ryanitous. The Bulls are already a good defensive team, it’s scorers and shooters they lack, yet Amundson is their big signing? Miami has to be laughing about this one.

    Thibs will turn this guy into a superstar. I know he can’t shoot or jump , but Thibs will just say ” just do your job”. You need to give me 20 points on misses, because Noah does it all the time.
