NBA Free Agent Rumors: Marcus Camby Draws Interest From Rockets, Heat, Knicks

Marcus Camby is drawing plenty of attention in NBA free agency, notably from the Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Miami Heat. According to FOX Sports writer Chris Tomasson, Camby's first choice is to return to Houston where he finished the 2011-12 season. If not, the 38-year-old could play for New York under the team's $3.09 million mid-level exception, according to ESPN.com.

Tomasson reports that Camby would like to start, but may be willing to split time even if the Rockets bring on Omer Asik from the Chicago Bulls. Camby believes he can be a starter, however, and sees himself playing another three more years in the NBA.

The draw to New York is strong as well. While Camby has little chance of starting over Tyson Chandler, he does live in New York during the offseason. He also played for the Knicks from 1998-2002. New York is looking to bring in a veteran point guard, however, and may not be able to give Camby the exception. Camby earned roughly $11.2 million last season between the Portland Trail Blazers and Houston.

The Heat are also in the running, but they may run into similar financial problems as the Knicks. If the Heat bring in Ray Allen from Boston, there may not be enough resources left to give Camby what he wants. If Allen goes elsewhere, Camby becomes a more viable option.
