cleared waivers as expected on Sunday, and is now an unrestricted free agent.
While the Rockets were reported to be the “leading contender
” for Camby’s services, there are two other teams believed to still be in the running, as well.
From Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida
With Marcus Camby having cleared waivers sources said his 3 finalists are the Heat, Rockets and Bulls. He will decide in the next few days
Camby accepted a buyout
from the Raptors after being traded there in the deal that sent Andrea Bargnani
to the Knicks, and did so specifically to have an opportunity to play for a contender.
All three of these teams fit the bill, obviously, and Camby can be an elite presence on the boards, even at this advanced stage of his career.
Quality bigs are in short supply in the NBA, and Camby’s presence on a postseason roster, if he’s healthy and able to contribute, could turn out to be an important one in helping an elite team advance through the playoffs.
