Does Amundson look like a real keeper and possible core player? He did well last game and I thought he always had the skill set to be important here. but what do you all think of him here

weak hands, just like biedrins...multiple incidents last game when they get a rebound, and it gets knocked out...

otherwise, love his hustle

I don't think he is long term... unless he stays a minimum salary guy. He is kind of like a Mark Madsen guy, who can stay around the league because he is a big who can run and play hard, but not a lot of talent.

He is still too small for what I think is needed for good interior defense and rebounding. If we get another big in the draft then he would be a third stringer next year.

Sounds like he's a good backup, energy guy that can come in and help create a run

Reminds me of Joel Anthony. But depending on the future teams he will be a bench warmer and will only get minutes when injuries occur.

He should not and hopefully never will be a starter. We would be dumb to get rid of a guy who puts it all out on the floor every night though, even if he isn't that talented.

Definitely a morale booster...a lot like Matt Barnes except without the passing and shooting ability. Can always count on a high five from him coming back to the bench.

He is like the Brian Cardinal of this team & not with the 6 year 37 million dollar payroll when he quit the Warriors as a role player to join Jerry West Grizzles in the middle of the last decade.
