That's the word right now out of Yahoo! Sports. According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Jonny Flynn and Hasheem Thabeet are heading to Portland.

Camby, 37, has been in the league for 15 seasons. This year with Portland, the 6-foot-11 center has averaged 3.8 points per game, 8.9 rebounds per game and 1.4 blocks per game. Camby hasn't averaged more than 10 ppg since the 2008-2009 season, but he has a knack for pulling down boards on the defensive end and blocking shots.

Considering Houston can use both of those things, he should be a welcome addition and will most likely replace Jordan Hill as Samuel Dalembert's backup. Camby is in the final year of a two-year extension he signed with Portland in 2010. He should make a little over $11 million this season, so Houston should be on the hook for about half of that.

Houston will not miss either Flynn nor Thabeet and Camby might make a nice veteran presence for the playoff push. Considering Houston has had varying levels of interest in Camby for what seems like a decade, it's interesting that he's finally on the team.
