Amundson first appeared in the NBA in 2007 with the Jazz and won the 2007 D-League Rookie of the Year Award with the Colorado 14ers. He played in college for UNLV and went undrafted in 2006.
Since debuting with Utah, Amundson has played for the 76ers, Suns, Warriors and, most recently, Pacers.

Amundson's best season came in 2009-10 with Phoenix, when he finished averaging 4.7 points and 4.4 rebounds and shooting 55.1 percent from the field.
