New York and Brooklyn are frontrunners in sign-and-trade talks to acquire Houston's Marcus Camby, league sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 8, 2012
The Rockets are looking for a combination of draft picks or a young player and not a stop gap veteran since the team is full rebuild mode. Camby had been interested in signing in Miami but the Heat opted to give their mid-level exception to Ray Allen.
Brooklyn continues to participate in trade talks for Dwight Howard but are also working to re-sign Brook Lopez. Camby would provide solid depth at center for whichever team that is able to acquire him.
