Lou Amundson says after Bulls deal ends he’s a Hornet

Those 10-day contracts a bunch of teams are handing out are technically two-way streets — not only is the team seeing if the player is a fit for them, the player is checking out the team as well. Except that usually the player doesn’t really have another option and are willing to latch on regardless of the situation.

Lou Amundson is not that guy. He is with the Bulls on a 10-day deal but he has options. And he plans to use them, he told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida.

Amundson started the season with the Timberwolves but they let him go. He has not cracked the rotation in Chicago, to say the least. He has played two minutes in one game for the Bulls. He likely feels like he has a better chance of getting on the court in New Orleans, where the team is a little more in flux and not playoff bound.

      Because the man wants to play.

        Play when, in practice? Arguably the teams 2 best players (Davis, Anderson) both play his position.

        Does anyone else find this odd that someone is talking about playing elsewhere while still playing for another team? And isn’t it illegal for other teams to contact agents while their client is still under contract, or are 10-day contract guys different?

    Typical marginal pale athlete- going for the playing time and personal stats over being a member of a winning team.

      It’s not like he’s winning a ring either way. He may as well get some tape out there if he thinks he can still play.
