NBA Free Agency: Marcus Camby Signs With Houston Rockets


Marcus Camby has been all over the NBA free agency wire in the past couple of weeks. After spending an injury-riddled 2013-14 season back with the New York Knicks,  Camby was traded to the Toronto Raptors, where he started his career in 1996, as a part of a package that helped the Knicks acquire Andrea Bargnani. Camby and the Raptors immediately agreed to a buyout of his contract, as he had no interest in playing for a rebuilding team, making him an unrestricted free agent after clearing waivers.



Camby only played 250 minutes for the Knicks last season, by far his lowest total of minutes in a season over his long career. His familiarity and comfort with the Houston area grew after he played the last half of the 2011-’12 season for the Rockets after he was traded there from the Portland Trail Blazers. The 39-year old big man would most likely be used very sparingly, but could provide some shot blocking and rebounding help off the bench, should the Rockets need his presence.
