The Lakers are interested in free agent big man Lou Amundson, who had a “good” meeting with the club, according to Real GM:
The Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers were the two teams that Lou Amundson visited this week and discussions went positively with both organizations, agent Mark Bartelstein told RealGM on Friday.
Amundson had met with a couple teams last week and sat down with two more within the past few days, and the 6-foot-9 forward is continuing dialogue with interested teams in hopes of landing a deal soon.
“They were good meetings,” Bartelstein said. “I wouldn’t quite use the word frontrunner right now, but there’s interest, and hopefully we can get something done soon.”
This isn’t the first time that the Lakers have been linked to Amundson; the purple and gold were said to have been interested in the 6’9″ power forward back in February after he was waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Amundson had his best years in Phoenix with Steve Nash. In 2009-10, he averaged 4.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game in just 14.8 minutes a night.
