Marcus Camby doesn’t want to be traded

Dec 29, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT


Portland is very actively looking for trades — GM Rich Cho realizes that the old Roy/Oden plan is dead and it is time to restructure. Andre Miller is drawing a lot of interest and may well be moved.

Marcus Camby also is on the trade block — except he’s not cool with that, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard. Someone close to Camby told Broussard that if the center were traded to a rebuilding team (such as Charlotte, where he was rumored to be going last week) Camby would seriously consider retiring.

One elite team that reportedly has interest is Orlando, which needs a backup center after sending Marcin Gortat out. Exactly what kind of deal could be swung is unclear but Broussard said they talking.

Frankly, Camby doesn’t want to go to an elite team, either. He would prefer to stay in Portland, where his family is. But this is a business. One that after 15 years of being in Camby could just walk away from if he isn’t happy with the final destination.

    Camby sure is emotional. The Clippers broke his heart last year with a trade and now he’s saying he’ll quit if he doesn’t get his way? I honestly can’t understand why anybody would trade such an efficient player but c’mon, Marcus…. it’s a business! Get over it!

    if the right situation presented itself he would take it, this is basically a warning to management, “dont send me to any scrub teams”. Life in Oregon is chill, so I don’t blame him for not wanting to keep moving his family, but if Dwight is saving you a seat at the cool table, then dude you take it! imagine the both of them on the court at the same time against Boston or L.A., that would be insane!
