    It's simply impossible to bring him back to NY considering that despite his age he's still worth $7-9M/year which is way above what we can offer.

    No way Camby gets 7-9 million


    I can see him coming to NY for the league minimum, he still has a lot of ties to the organization and of course he and Melo have a realationship from Den.

    He'd basically be Jared Jefferies with the ability to finish.

    What about him and Dolan though? If they put the past behind him, then maybe we could get him. If we did, it'd be sick.

    Camby made $9.2M this season and I don't think he'll take an $8M pay cut...

    He still has a house in Ct so i can see him wanting back. My question is who's job is he taking. We need guards, and defense at the guard position

    What? Who in their right mind would pay Camby 9 mill at this point in his career? He'll get 4 mill max

    I thought he lived in Houston full time and he really wanted to stay with the Rockets because of it. The Rockets also want to keep him and move Dalembert.

    I dont see us getting him honestly, i doubt he's even on our radar.

    Would love him back as a knick though.

    I've been saying this guy is too old for the last 10 years.

    So, I think he's too old.

    But he'll probably play 'til he's 50 and swat 4 shots a game.

    He may be old (in NBA years) but he still manages to average at least 9 rpg and 1 bpg. Plus he would be coming off the bench after TC, if we managed to sign him cheap it would be a huge steal. But my gut tells me that there will be a team that will offer him a 4mil+ deal, which we can't afford.

    I prefer young blood. The NBA is evolving fast and filling our roster with mostly veterans won't work anymore. With this free agency and the options we have though I doubt we'll get it and have to settle for more veterans.
