The unrestricted free-agent center, Marcus Camby, has narrowed his choices to the New York Knicks, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Rockets, a league source told CSNNW.com.
All of these teams and then some, called Camby's agent, Rick Kaplan, shortly after July 1 hit, inquiring about his services, but at this point in his career, he's primarily considering teams in contention for a championship, the same source said.
He has career averages of 9.7 points per game, 9.9 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks.
Expect Heat, Celtics, Lakers, Hawks and Knicks to have interest in free agent Rashard Lewis once he clears waivers, source tells Y!
Rashard Lewis has been a shell of his former self since getting busted for HGH use shortly after the Magic beat the KG-less Celtics in 2009. I hope the C's pass on him. Camby on the other hand, while old as dirt, keeps chugging along and I feel would be a nice addition to the Celtics. Him and KG would be pretty tough out there together defensively, and obviously Camby could spell KG as well. My guess is Camby could be signed to a 1 year deal, so it basically comes down to where he'd like to play. That's some pretty stiff competition on Camby's short list, so I wouldn't get your hopes up to high on a Massachusetts reunion.
Update: 10:52 PM: If you read Marcus Camby's twitter, the Rockets are definitely the front runners to sign him (retain him).
