Warriors Trying to Sign Lou Amundson

With training camp just three weeks away, Warriors general manager Larry Riley still has some work to do.

He’s got an open spot or two on the roster to fill, and he’s still got to hire a couple of assistant coaches.

“I think in another week we’ll have some ideas on those things,” Riley said on Tuesday. “I’ve got some ideas and I know Nellie (Warriors coach Don Nelson) has some ideas. But we haven’t moved on anything.”

According to a source, the Warriors still believe they’ve got a shot at signing free agent center Louis Amundson, who was an effective energy player off the bench last season for the Suns.

The source said he thinks the Warriors and New Orleans Hornets, among maybe another team or two, are in the mix for Amundson, and the hope is a decision will be made this week.

The Warriors have $2.4 million remaining of their mid-level exception, so they could start Amundson’s salary at that number or $2.1 million – the bi-annual exception.
