While teams are, for the most part, in the process of finalizing rosters for the upcoming season, there are still a few quality free agents such as — Louis Amundson and Marquis Daniels — available.
Amundson is drawing interest from several teams and is focused on playing in the NBA next season, according to a league source. Earlier reports suggested that Amundson might consider playing overseas, but that is not the case. It is unclear which teams could be interested in Amundson, but the Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, and Washington Wizards could all be in play.
Likewise, Marquis Daniels is also garnering interest from a number of teams, per a league source. Daniels, who can shoot the three well, would be a nice addition off the bench to a team looking for another shooter. At 31, however, he isn’t as versatile as he used to be, but could contribute to a team such as the Sacramento Kings, who also possess cap space.
It may be the “quiet” part of the NBA off-season, but Amundson and Daniels aren’t players off of the scrapheap. Amundson shows hustle and is a solid defender, and Daniels is versatile and can shoot. Both players can be valuable contributors to a team looking for their services.
Another valuable player still unsigned is forward Mickael Pietrus. Pietrus has attracted attention from a few teams in the NBA, but has also received overseas offers, a source said. Pietrus spent last season with the Boston Celtics and could end up back there. Recent reports of potential landing spots “have been accurate,” the source said.
As training camp nears, rosters are finalized, and the preseason kicks off, many quality free agents are still out there waiting to be signed.
