The Raptors acquired Camby, Steve Novak, Quentin Richardson and three draft picks from the New York Knicks in exchange for Andrea Bargnani. If the buyout goes through, the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls have all expressed interest in adding him.

Camby, who was the 2006-07 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, can potentially anchor the defensive end of the floor at age 39 in a reserve role. He played in 24 games in 2012-13, starting four of them while averaging 1.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and a career-low 0.6 blocks in 10.4 minutes per game.

The Knicks signed Camby to a three-year, $13 million contract in July 2012.
