  • Louis Amundson

    He's a great rebounder. Great energy, and doesn't mind playing sub-20 minutes a game. He would bring the rebounding and defence we desperately need. And apparently we've "shown interest" in signing him!

    "Louis Amundson made a lot of friends. His popularity in Phoenix over the past two seasons prompted nearly as much local interest in his free-agency future but he said it still appears that won't keep him in Phoenix. 'It's too bad Phoenix didn't value me enough to keep me around,' Amundson said. 'I felt like it was a great situation and I gave everything I have. It's a business and I'm trying to have a thick skin. I was always concerned (about the chances). Knowing they signed Hakim Warrick(notes) and Channing for that much money ($30 million over five years), that was not a good sign.' Amundson said Charlotte, Golden State and Toronto have shown interest in signing him. His hopes of landing in Denver, near his Boulder, Colo., roots, fizzled once the Nuggets signed Al Harrington(notes). 'We're talking pretty seriously with a lot of teams,' said Amundson's agent, Mark Bartelstein, who represents another free-agent big man (Mark Blount(notes)) that has the Suns' interest. 'He's the best big on the market."

    Last year he managed 4.7 points and 4.4(1.6 offensive) rebounds and nearly a block (.9) in just under 15 minutes a game. I watched a few of his games, he fights for every rebound and is a great defender. Great player behind Bargs, a big improvement over Andersen. And his great rebounding and defense, and decent offense will give Bargs a little fight for his minutes!
