Amundson has drawn interest from several teams seeking further depth in the frontcourt – after a season when the 30-year-old averaged nearly two points and three rebounds with the New Orleans Pelicans, Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves.

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.
