Amundson said in a phone interview Thursday that his agent, Mark Bartelstein, has had conversations with Heat president Pat Riley about him. But he said the recent signing by Miami of Chris Andersen might be too much of a duplication as the Heat seek to possibly fill their 15th spot. FOXSports Florida

The 6-foot-9 Amundson said other teams in mix for him are Chicago, Boston and New York. The Knicks have a full roster of 15, but Amundson said they’re waiting to see how it works out with Kenyon Martin, who recently signed a 10-day contract. The Knicks also could clear a roster spot by waiving Rasheed Wallace, out for the season due to a foot injury. “Any of them would be great,’’ Amundson, who has been working out in his hometown of Denver after being waived Feb. 8 by Minnesota, said of the teams looking at him. “They’re all good teams.’’ FOXSports Florida

Amundson had been playing little with the Timberwolves, and said that before he was waived he had looked into whether a trade could be worked out. He said a possible deal that included Amundson going to Philadelphia with point guard Luke Ridnour for center Spencer Hawes was nixed by the Timberwolves due to concerns about that leaving them too thin at point guard as Ricky Rubio works his way back to full strength following knee surgery.

Because the Knicks aren’t sure if Wallace will be available or effective, and Marcus Camby has also been limited with a sprained left plantar fascia, the team has considered signing a free agent big man. Kenyon Martin and Lou Amundson are two players whom the Knicks have discussed internally, according to sources. New York was holding out hope that Wallace would return and be just as productive as he was earlier in the year. Getting Wallace back was their preference since he had been with the team for the whole season, had proven himself as a significant contributor and had emerged as a strong locker room presence. However, if Wallace is ineffective or unable to play many minutes when he comes back, expect New York to sign Martin or Amundson for the remainder of the season to bolster their depleted frontcourt.

Seven-year veteran Lou Amundson has been around long enough to know how the NBA works, to know that by Friday he could be traded or waived so the Timberwolves can resign Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson for the rest of the season. His agent has been talking to other teams about a possible trade, and Amundson in turn has been talking to his agent about whether the Wolves can deal him to a playoff contender for a protected second-round pick or if they'll waive him to clear a roster spot the Wolves will need if they intend to keep both players. "It's a business, so you have to think ahead with that stuff," Amundson said. "Everything's on the table right now. You never like to get traded, but sometimes the situation isn't what you hope it to be, and so it can work out for the best sometimes." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Wolves forward Lou Amundson said he has been talking with his agent about the very real possibility that he will be traded or waived Friday if the Wolves intend to make room for both Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale for the rest of the season. "It's a business so you have to kind of think ahead," Amundson said. "Whatever happens, just continue to do what I'm doing. Everything's on the table right now. You never like to get traded, but sometimes the situation isn't what you hope to it to be. It can work out for the best sometimes." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

The Knicks and Sixers are said to have interest in Wolves forward Lou Amundson. He's the expected odd man out once a roster decision has to be made next week. The best the Wolves can expect in a trade is a heavily protected future second-round pick. 1500 ESPN

Darren Wolfson: Told by a #Twolves contact they have additional days flexibility, so a Lou Amundson move is not required right this second. Twitter @DarrenWolfson

Tolliver said by text Monday evening that Amundson's signing with the Wolves "absolutely" means he will sign elsewhere. Tolliver probably will sign either either Atlanta or Phoenix for the minimum, even though he has been holding out, waiting for more than that. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Darren Wolfson: Mark Bartelstein, Amundson's agent, & Kahn began these talks a month ago. Picked up in the last week with the Adelmans involved. Per Bartelstein -- no surprise at the veteran's minimum, but the #Twolves beat out a handful of teams for Amundson. Twitter @DarrenWolfson
