If it doesn’t pan out, Amundson, who is of Swedish heritage, said Spain would top his overseas list. “I thought about it last summer, we had some interest, but nothing materialized,’’ Amundson said. “I’ll wait and see what the options are in the summer.’’
However, Amundson, who has played on 10 NBA teams (12 is the record), isn’t buying the rhetoric. The rugged if undersized 6-foot-9 grinder has heard it before. And the 32-year-old told The Post if the Knicks don’t come through, he likely will play in Europe next season and pass on an 11th NBA team. “Yeah, everything is on the table for me,’’ Amundson said. “I would like to play. I’ve been in this league, so I know what that’s like. So I think going overseas would be a new experience for me I think I’d enjoy. I’d get an opportunity to play. So yeah, everything’s on the table.’’

The relationship has been encouraging, he said, partly because she is a musician who does not have a 9-to-5 schedule.
Amundson, who signed his second 10-day contract with the Knicks this week, has been staying at a room at the Ritz-Carlton in White Plains. He has just a few things with him: a few suitcases of clothes, a laptop and a guitar. A driver comes to get him whenever he needs to go to practice.
