Knicks Sign Marcus Camby

The New York Knicks have signed 38-year old center Marcus Camby to a three-year deal.  The Knicks clearly are in win-now mode.

The New York Knicks completed a trade with the Houston Rockets on Monday.  The Knicks received 38-year old center Marcus Camby from the Houston Rockets in exchange for Toney Douglas, Josh Harrellson, Jerome Jordan, and second-round picks in 2014-15.  Tony Douglas’ contract will be paid by the Knicks.

Camby agreed to a three-year $13.2 million deal via the sign-and-trade agreement between the Knicks and Rockets.  Camby and Tyson Chandler will now form one of the best (if not thee best) defensive tandems at center in the NBA.

Camby is not a good scorer, but his strong defense will be an added boost for the Knicks.  The Knicks also have good scorers in Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire, Steve Novak, JR Smith, and most likely Jeremy Lin.  It’s not like they’ll be depending on Camby to do a lot of scoring.  I like the addition of Camby, but they had to give up a decent amount to get him.  If I’m a Knicks fan, I’m hoping that Josh Harrellson doesn’t grow into a good NBA player.  This trade would be bad for the Knicks if he does.
