Marcus Camby is a free agent after being traded to the Houston Rockets before last season's trade deadline, and the Rockets are looking to execute a sign-and-trade for the 38-year-old center. Though the Dwight Howard dominoes have yet to fall, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks -- Camby's employer, once upon a time -- are the frontrunners for his services.
The Rockets are no strangers to trading with either the Nets' or Knicks' front offices, having completed trades for the likes of Terrence Williams, Jordan Hill and Tracy McGrady in the past two years. Since it's apparent they've given up any hope of fielding five players on the court at one time, they're probably only seeking a draft pick or some underutilized small forward with a short contract (Bill Walker, anyone?) in return for Camby.
Camby averaged 4.9 points and nine rebounds in 22.9 minutes per game last year.
