Report: New Orleans to sign Lou Amundson

Nov 12, 2013, 12:24 AM EST

With Ryan Anderson still out with an injured toe, and that recovery going slowly, New Orleans apparently is looking for a little depth along the front line.

They are apparently are about to sign veteran forward Lou Amundson, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

This will be a veteran minimum deal. Amundson brings a team energy off the bench, some rebounding, and almost no offense whatsoever. Last season he played 39 games with three teams last season.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $15,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Tuesday night’s games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $2,000. Starts at 7:30pm ET. Here’s the link.

This isn’t a game changer for New Orleans, just a little depth.
