Raptors reach buyout with Marcus Camby

Marcus Camby will soon be a free agent.

From the moment he was shipped back to Toronto in the Andrea Bargnani trade, Camby has been clear he didn’t want to play for the Raptors. He’s got a couple years left in the league, playing the role of backup big off the bench for the league minimum, and he wants to do that where he can get a ring.

Toronto has cool with that and the sides reached a buyout agreement, the Raptors announced. He was placed on waivers, which he certainly will clear. He was owed $8.5 million for the next two seasons but only $1 million of that was guaranteed.

This makes Camby an unrestricted free agent. The Bulls, Rockets and Clippers are reportedly interested, and you can expect a few other teams to throw their hat in the ring.

When healthy — he has only played in 43 games combined the past two seasons — he can still defend in the paint and has a midrange jumper you have to respect. But he’s not a big impact player for any of these teams.

I'd take him for the min in a heartbeat. Guy can still patrol the paint for 10-15minutes a game and hit an occasional J.

Yeah he is another year older so he will not get less injury prone, a roster spot taken up for a hope he is right for the finals..... as much as I thought he was a perfect fit a couple of years ago now its too much of a risk.

Damn... You read my mind! His old ass would just eat up our last roster spot on the injured reserve list! He needs to retire.

There is nothing like being turned down when someone is in their prime to make you less receptive to take their broken down offer later. A Hobbit ring chaser is only useful as far as their little legs can take them.

No way for Camby!!!

But what's very very interesting is the HEAT are mentioned in Camby ...if that happens one would think Oden to Mia is dead....

Hmmmmmm
