Los Angeles Clippers: Lou Amundson
Terms of the deal were not announced but ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reported last week that Amundson had agreed to a non-guaranteed contract, allowing the Clippers to bring him to training camp to give him a chance to make the team.
Amundson, 30, has appeared in 327 career games for the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Hornets.
The 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward finished last season with the Hornets, averaging 2.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 18 games. He has been playing in pickup games at the Clippers' facility recently after stints with three teams last season: New Orleans, Chicago and Minnesota.
An undrafted forward out of UNLV, Amundson was named the 2006-07 NBA D-League Rookie of the Year after averaging 11.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.48 blocks in 25 games. In college, he averaged 7.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 120 career games.
The Clippers also signed Mustapha Farrakhan and JaMychal Green to non-guaranteed contracts to complete their training camp roster.
Farrakhan has spent the last two seasons in the NBA D-League with the Bakersfield Jam, Idaho Stampede, Sioux Falls Sky Force and Iowa Energy. In 72 career games he has averaged 8.0 points, 2.5 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 18.3 minutes. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard started the 2012-13 season with the Milwaukee Bucks, appearing in three preseason games for the Bucks before being released prior to the start of the regular season.
Green was a member of the Clippers’ Summer League team in Las Vegas this year. In four games he averaged 7.0 points and 5.3 rebounds in 21.3 minutes of action. The 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward participated in training camp with the San Antonio Spurs prior to last season.
The Clippers’ training camp roster currently stands at 18 players and the team will begin camp on Tuesday in San Diego.
The deal allows the Clippers to bring Amundson to training camp to give him a chance to make the team.
The Clippers have 14 players under contract, leaving open the possibility they'll sign one more player before opening night to carry the league maximum 15.
