The Knicks re-signed Lou Amundson

New, comments

Hey, alright!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Here's some news for you on a dreary Monday:

Lou Amundson is back, against all odds. Last season with New York, Amundson averaged 1.8 points and 1.7 rebounds in 7 minutes per game. I assumed the Knicks had moved on from Lou even though their frontcourt depth is, uh, lacking, to put it kindly. (To clarify, by lacking, I mean in experience, not quantity. They're relying on a lot of unproven players behind Joakim Noah and Kristaps Porzingis.)

Two important things to take away here:

1. The tiny table is back! This is the best news of 2016, and you can't convince me otherwise.

2. Because Lou's deal is guaranteed, the Knicks have 15 guys signed to guaranteed deals, which means that if one of the players on an unguaranteed deal (Chasson Randle, Ron Baker, and J.P. Tokoto) has a good enough camp/preseason to make the team, it'll be at the expense of someone with a guaranteed contract. As you can see in Berman's tweet above, Maurice Ndour and Mason Plumlee are prime candidates if that issue arises.

That's all I have to say on that. Lou back. TINY TABLE BACK.
