ESPN: Houston Rockets to Sign Marcus Camby
(HOUSTON) — The Houston Rockets added another big man Sunday, agreeing to a one-year deal with free agent center Marcus Camby.
Sources confirmed to ESPN Sunday that Camby will sign with the Rockets for the veterans minimum $1.4 million. He became a free agent when the Toronto Raptors bought out his contract earlier this month.
The Raptors acquired Camby in a trade that sent former No. 1 pick Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks.
The 39-year-old Camby has an offseason home in the Houston area and played in 19 games for the Rockets in 2011-12. He’s averaged 9.5 points and 9.8 rebounds in 17 NBA seasons.
The Rockets will now have three serviceable centers in Camby, Dwight Howard, and Omer Asik.
