Agent Larry Fox confirmed a SportDay report that said Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos is very interested in his client Anthony Tolliver, but insisted the focus remains on getting a deal done in the NBA for the 6-foot-8 forward. "Panathinaikos has definitely expressed strong interest and their coaching staff loves Anthony (Tolliver)," Fox told HoopsHype. "While Anthony is flattered by their interest and the potential economics behind it, we are currently in discussions with several NBA teams. While we won't rule out Greece, the interest level from the NBA remains strong and we are continuing to pursue those options." HoopsHype

Panathinaikos is looking for two big guys to complete the roster and doesn’t want to spend a lot of money. They can overcome their budget only for something extraordinary. Like for example Luis Amundson, for who they can spend up to one million U.S. dollars. The 29 year old power forward/center has a lot of offers by several NBA teams and may look to “Greens” only if he won’t find something good there. Panathinaikos has as an alternative Renaldo Balkman. The center from Puerto Rico ended the season in New York Knicks and is more feasible. EuroHoops.net

A source close to free-agent forward Lou Amundson said Charlotte is looking at Amundson, and that it's unlikely he would go to Greece. Panathinaikos has been mentioned as a possibility but the Amundson camp is wary about how Josh Childress' game fell off after he went to play in Greece and returned to the NBA. The source said the New York Knicks are also looking at Amundson. However, the Knicks only can offer the minimum and Amundson is looking for a deal in the area of $3 million a season. Sulia

European clubs are built with veteran players who are well-versed in team basketball and drilled in fundamentals. It is rare that any team, particularly a Euroleague power, reaches out to an American rookie but Panathinaikos is pursuing Morris to fill a power forward void. Morris' agent, Tony Dutt, said talks with Panathinaikos are "moving along" but nothing is imminent. Dutt said he would pursue an out clause so that Morris could return to the Suns if the lockout ends. It is not clear whether Panathinaikos, the Euroleague's defending champion, would be willing to risk a midseason personnel loss to do that. Arizona Republic
