08:06 AM ET 03.12 | Lou Amundson is taking his talents to the Big Easy. The power forward wrote in a text message Monday to FOX Sports Florida that he will sign with the Hornets for the rest of the season after his 10-day contract with the Chicago Bulls expires at the end of the day. "Chicago was prepared to sign me to another 10-day, but I felt I should go somewhere where I can get a better opportunity to play," Amundson wrote in a text message. Amundson signed a 10-day deal with the Bulls on March 2. But he played just two minutes in one game while not appearing in four others. The Hornets needed a big body after power forward Jason Smith recently was lost for the season with a shoulder injury.
