  1. Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge: “I’m happy here right now”

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    Much to the disgust of GM Neil Olshey, reports of an unhappy LaMarcus Aldridge and possible trades would not go away over the past year. No matter what Aldridge said. Or Olshey. Or anyone. Aldridge admitted to Sam Amick of the USA Today there were some things that made him uncomfortable last year in Portland,…

  2. Report: Rockets to release Marcus Camby

    Marcus Camby

    If there’s one element of professional sports people consistently overlook, it’s how significant and unavoidable aging is. As players get in to their 30s, their production declines. The later into their 30s, the more drastic the decline. Of course, there are exceptions, and people cling to those, because the exceptions are far more visible than…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  4. Wednesday And-1 Links: Mark Cuban cleared of insider trading

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was acquitted of insider trading, a case brought by…

  5. Rockets’ Marcus Camby out weeks with torn plantar fascia

    Oct 9, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    Marcus Camby

    Sadly, it wouldn’t feel like an NBA season without a Marcus Camby injury report. The veteran big man is now in Houston to back up Dwight Howard, but he will not be able to do that for at least a couple weeks — and more likely a couple months — due to a torn plantar…

  6. Bulls plan to limit Joakim Noah’s minutes to help plantar fasciitis

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Joakim Noah says right now he feels no pain in his foot, no plantar fasciitis. That despite a summer where he worked out plenty, even training with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. His foot feels fine. If the Bulls are going to be the contenders they think they are, Noah still has to be fine in April and…

  7. Felton says younger Knicks better prepared for long season

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    2013 Yao Foundation Charity Game Press Conference

    Gone are Jason Kidd, Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, and Marcus Camby. In their place are Metta World Peace, Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, and Tim Hardaway, Jr. It’s not quite that clean and simple (Chris Copeland and Steve Novak are gone as well) but the idea is clear — New York got younger. Last season they…

  8. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Last season: If you’ll recall, New York’s offseason leading up to last year was widely regarded as a joke. Jeremy Lin was let go, Raymond Felton was brought in, and then the Knicks seemed to sign all the oldest players available in free agency. But with the benefit of hindsight, the Knicks did about as well…

  9. Carmelo Anthony expects the Knicks to be better than they were last year

    Sep 11, 2013, 12:14 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The Knicks had a great regular season in 2013, finishing with the second-best record in the East behind only the defending champion Miami Heat. Carmelo Anthony leading the league in scoring was a big part of that, as was J.R. Smith putting together a season worthy of him bringing home the league’s Sixth Man of…

  10. McHale plans to get Camby plenty of rest this season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    When he’s on the court, Marcus Camby can still help a team, even at age 39. He is long, is smart about defending the rim and you have to respect his midrange jumper as a defender. The key is “when he’s on the court.” Camby has an injury list longer than the list of bad…

  11. Pistons agree to partially-guaranteed deal with Josh Harrellson

    Aug 20, 2013, 9:54 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    The Pistons have reached an agreement to add free agent big man Josh Harrellson to the roster, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The contract will be partially guaranteed for this season, with a team option for a second year. Harrellson appeared in 37 games for the Knicks two years ago,…

  12. Marcus Camby sacrificed more than $600,000 in salary to leave Raptors

    Aug 2, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Marcus Camby

    Update: Marcus Camby and the Raptors agreed to waive set-off rights in his buyout, according to Mark Deeks of ShamSports.com, which means Camby will make more than I previously calculated including a set-off. The post is now update to reflect accurate figures. Marcus Camby really didn’t want to be in Toronto. After being sent to…

  13. Report: Marcus Camby will sign with the Rockets

    Jul 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    The Rockets have made another free agent big man acquisition, and while it’s not as big of a deal as the one involving Dwight Howard earlier this summer, it may be an important one to the team’s ultimate chances nonetheless. Marcus Camby is expected to sign with Houston today, according to a report from Marc…

  14. Report: Bulls, Rockets now front-runners for Camby (Heat not so much)

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby is an unrestricted free agent, thank you very much Raptors. And big men who can protect the rim have real value around the league, so it is no shock the guy traded to then set free by Toronto has other suitors. Nothing has come together yet, but the Bulls and Rockets are the…

  15. Marcus Camby clears waivers, reportedly deciding between Heat, Bulls, and Rockets

    Jul 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby cleared waivers as expected on Sunday, and is now an unrestricted free agent. While the Rockets were reported to be the “leading contender” for Camby’s services, there are two other teams believed to still be in the running, as well. From Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida: With Marcus Camby having cleared waivers…

  16. Rockets a ‘leading contender’ to land Marcus Camby once he becomes a free agent

    Jul 20, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Marcus Camby was traded from the Knicks to the Raptors in the deal that brought Andrea Bargnani to New York, but after playing 17 NBA seasons, he had no desire to finish his career with a rebuilding team nowhere near championship contention. Camby reached a buyout agreement with the Raptors this week, and once he…

  17. Report: Quentin Richardson won’t play for the Raptors either

    Jul 18, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    When veteran big man Marcus Camby was scheduled to head to Toronto as one of the pieces the Knicks gave up to acquire Andrea Bargnani, we knew almost immediately that he wasn’t going to play for the Raptors. Camby isn’t looking to finish out a career that’s lasted 17 NBA seasons by playing for a…

  18. Report: Heat, Rockets, Bulls, Clippers all interested in Camby

    Jul 18, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Camby gestures while waiting for foul shot by Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Toronto Raptors are on the verge of buying out Marcus Camby. He was traded to Toronto as part of the Andrea Bargnani deal (have fun with that one Knicks) but the veteran didn’t want to spend the last couple years of his career with a rebuilding team. He wanted to go to a contender.…

  19. It’s official: Raptors reach buyout with Marcus Camby

    Jul 17, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Marcus Camby will soon be a free agent. From the moment he was shipped back to Toronto in the Andrea Bargnani trade, Camby has been clear he didn’t want to play for the Raptors. He’s got a couple years left in the league, playing the role of backup big off the bench for the league…

  20. Report: Raptors nearing buyout with Marcus Camby, who will receive interest from Clippers, Bulls and Rockets

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby wasn’t happy to be traded to the Raptors, who tried to flip him before the deal – also involving Andrea Bargnani – ever became official. When that didn’t happen, Camby again expressed his desire for a buyout or trade. Because of his high salary – $4,383,773 next season and $4,177,208 the following year…

  22. Report: Marcus Camby already tells Raptors he wants a buyout or trade

    Jul 5, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Camby gestures while waiting for foul shot by Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Marcus Camby has two years left on his current contract, and that’s likely about how much longer his NBA career is going to last (he’s 39 now). He wants to spend those years playing for a contender in games that matter, chasing a ring. He doesn’t want to be the veteran teacher on a rebuilding…

  23. Raptors not keen on trading Rudy Gay for Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 3, 2013, 5:39 PM EDT

    Raptors Gay prepares to throw the ball into play from the end court in the first half of their NBA game against the Celtics in Toronto

    New Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri just turned Andrea Bargnani, an underwhelming player on a terrible contract, into a first-round pick. Sure, the Raptors had to take back Marcus Camby’s bad contract and Steve Novak’s lengthy deal, but they also got a couple second-round picks for the trouble. Ujiri should be feeling pretty, pretty, pretty…

  24. Report: Raptors looking to flip Marcus Camby to contender

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:19 AM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Part of the trade that brings Andrea Bargnani to the Knicks — because an oft-injured three-point shooting big man who doesn’t rebound, is a poor defender and is owed $22 million over the next two years was a need in New York — flipped veteran big man Marcus Camby to the Raptors. Toronto is who…

  25. Marcus Camby not pleased to be traded to Raptors

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    When he signed with the Knicks last year, Marcus Camby said, “Hopefully I can end my career in New York with a championship.” He didn’t say “Hopefully I can spend one year in New York and then continue retracing my career backward by getting traded to the rebuilding Raptors.” So, predictably, Camby wasn’t exactly thrilled…
