Marcus Camby may be on the final legs of his career but the NBA rumors around him keep popping up. It looks like the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are the frontrunners for his services. He has drawn interest from a lot of teams, but those two look like the favorites to sign him.
Camby would makes sense for the Nets only if they do not get a certain bratty center from the Orlando Magic. I believe he likes to go by Superman. The Knicks, however, make much more sense. They have a bunch of contracts to send to the Houston Rockets for Camby. The Rockets could then dump the contracts for more cap relief to set up for a big move that will somehow never happen.
Camby has been around a lot and he never quite showed the potential that he did in college. He still had a very good pro career and is a great guy to have on your team. He can play good defense and mentor young players. Adding him to the Knicks would give them two great defensive centers.
If I personally had my own way, I would send Camby off to mentor Anthony Davis. Davis has been compared to Camby, so why not have that guy mentor him? He is going to need some fine tuning on his defensive skills and Camby could help him reach his full potential on defense.
NBA rumors are going to be a mainstay for the next couple of days. Marcus Camby is just the latest guy to be in the cycle.
