by August 08, 2012

Unrestricted free agent forward Lou Amundson is still mulling his options for next season, but reports indicate the New York Knicks and Charlotte Bobcats are front-runners to land his services. Via “Lou Amundson’s agent has had an ongoing dialogue with the Knicks about bringing the bruising center to New York. Several teams, including some with more money to offer than the Knicks, have also expressed interest in Amundson. According to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida, Amundson has drawn interest from Charlotte, which can offer the $2.5 non tax-payer exception. The Knicks can offer only the veteran’s minimum to Amundson. Amundson’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, says Amundson is in no rush to make a decision. ‘Glen (Grunwald) and I have talked,’ Bartelstein said. ‘(Amundson) is the best big man on the market, so there’s no reason to be impatient.'”
