Default Camby to be Bought Out

Quote:
The Toronto Raptors are expected to negotiate a buyout with veteran center Marcus Camby of the final two years, $7.5 million of his contract, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

The Raptors acquired Camby in the recent trade that sent forward-center Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks. Camby said after the trade was agreed upon that he would prefer to play for a title-contending team.

Camby, 38, played sparingly for the Knicks last season. The Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls are expected to have interest in Camby if he clears waivers and becomes a free agent, a league source said.

Next move might be QRich, but I suspect he has a very little value.

No space but more guaranteed PT for the bench bigs - Acy, Gray and Novak when he plays PF.

I don't think playing time was the main issue. Camby is basically done at this point, I'd be shocked if he played 10 mpg next year.

Hoping for a discount on the buyout, otherwise it's just another keep-the-agent-happy move.

Well, more importantly it opens a roster spot to bring a guy like Wright up from the SL, or space for a larger trade if Gay or DD is moved.

Because 1 Camby was signed after the CBA and 2 We traded for him, so amnesty doesn't apply.

if vawing him doesn't save us money we should keep him. There might be some injuries and haviing a rotation player of 10mpg isn't that bad.

You want to bet Novak gets more playing than both Gray & Acy?

Novak will hit more 3's than our former No. 1 pick player, so why not?
