The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed free-agent forward Lou Amundson, according to Priority Sports. That's the agency that represents the 29-year-old.
An NBA source told 1500 ESPN's Darren Wolfson that Amundson received a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of $1.07 million.
Amundson, who is 6-9, is expected to serve as a backup to power forward Kevin Love and also will be able to take some minutes at center. The move means free-agent Anthony Tolliver won't be returning to Minnesota. It's expected Tolliver will soon sign with either the Atlanta Hawks or Phoenix Suns.
Amundson, who played college basketball at UNLV, has spent time with the Utah Jazz (2006-07), Philadelphia 76ers (2006-08), Phoenix Suns (2008-10), Golden State Warriors (2010-11) and Indiana Pacers (2011-12).
In 60 games with the Pacers last season, Amundson averaged 3.6 points and 3.7 rebounds.
