Default Camby signs in Houston

Quote:
Even in July, in a match up against Eastern Conference contenders, homecourt advantage served the Rockets well. But it took more than that for the Rockets to bring back veteran center Marcus Camby.

In a measure of how much the Rockets have changed, becoming a potential contender themselves, a year after the Rockets let Camby head out of town in part of their transformation to the NBA’s youngest team, he will return to his adopted hometown to rejoin a team so radically transformed that he once again should fit in with a team’s win-now approach.

Camby chose to sign with the Rockets as a free agent, a person with knowledge of the decision said, to play for team far more prepared to compete than the team he left as a free agent last summer. A longtime resident of Pearland, Camby also considered the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat.

Camby will sign a veteran’s minimum, worth $1.4 million next season.

It was pretty widespread that we were going to waive him, we would have no leverage to make a deal like that.

Understandable move by Camby but he won't win a title in Houston...

no because then they would have to take him at the same contract and same cap hit, and if they were over it would be impossible.

Why pay 4.4 million and a 2nd rounder when you can pay 884,000?

Lol.

The Rockets will waive center Marcus Camby on Monday, a person with knowledge of the decision said Sunday. Camby had been unable to come back from a torn plantar fascia tissue which has kept him out throughout the preseason.

Camby’s agent, Rick Kaplan, confirmed the decision and said Camby does not intend to retire.
