Why Pelicans waived Lou Amundson

The New Orleans Pelicans signed forward/center Lou Amundson on Nov. 12 to provide cover at those positions and in 18 games he averaged 2.1 points and 3.1 rebounds. On Tuesday the team waived Amundson since Greg Stiemsma (Grade 2 MCL sprain - left knee) is now back with the active roster, reports The Times-Picayune.
