Marcus Camby Signed By Rockets, Traded To New York Knicks

The Houston Rockets have agreed to sign and trade center Marcus Camby to the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Rockets will receive guard Toney Douglas, forward Josh Harrellson, center Jerome Jordan, second-round picks in 2014 and '15 and cash used to pay Douglas' salary from the Knicks. Camby will get a three-year, $13.2 million contract that contains a partial guarantee in the third season, sources said.

Camby had made it clear last week that he didn't want to re-sign with the Rockets and didn't like the direction in which the organization was going. Now, he has a good contract with a playoff-caliber team. He previously played for New York from 1998-2002.

Houston has not gotten out of the sweepstakes for Dwight Howard, continuing to acquire pieces and looking for a potential deal for the Orlando center.
