    Trade Icon Clippers Acquire Camby

    The Los Angeles Clippers today acquired forward Marcus Camby from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for a future second round draft pick. The NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2006-07, Camby comes to the Clippers with a reputation as one of the top defenders in the league. A 12-year veteran, Camby led the NBA in blocked shots last year (3.61) for the third straight season, becoming only the second player in NBA history to lead the league in three consecutive seasons. “I love this acquisition for the current make up of our team,” Clippers head coach Mike Dunleavy said. “We are getting a consummate pro who is maybe the best team defender in the league and who has 60 playoff games under his belt.”

    I f*cking knew it!! We wasted our time hoping to get a better deal, when we could have unloaded Randolph for nothing. Now we're stuck with him and his massive contract.

    I can't believe the Nuggets gave away Camby for so little. Hell, we could have traded Randolph to the Clippers for a 2nd round pick, and then could have traded that pick for Camby. Ughh!! Camby would've been a perfect fit into the Knicks lineup and D'Anotni's system. He's exactly what we needed. An athletic-shot blocking center.

    God! I hope you're right. I would love for Camby to come back to New York.

    they might just be keeping him


    "I think this is a very good addition for us, especially since we're getting a player who can really help us without having to give up a player in return," general manager Elgin Baylor said. "With him playing alongside [Chris] Kaman, I think we will have a pair of excellent interior defenders and that will make us a formidable team."

    OK a three team deal may be a long shot, but it does make perfect sense!

    Because it appears that the first player that the Clips went after was Zach and they offered a second round pick for him as we all know. Now there is no reason to think that they still would not want him, and in essence they would have given up the exact same amount to get him! The Knicks will get a player who compliments our Center, and who's contract does not extend past 2010 and is also much less than Randolph's this really is a win win for all three teams.....so why do I get the feeling this deal is not going to happen?!

    OK, I trust Donnie knows what he is doing, and I hope upon hearing this news he is now on three way with Dantoni and The Clips GM trying to make this happen. No way he can sit and let this deal just go down and not act on it

    This article pretty much supports the notion of Zach being traded for Camby. Donnie wants a quality player with just two years left on their deal this is it! Donnie make this move happen Now!

    Why isn't Donnie Walsh trying to get rid of Eddy Curry? I'm not even going to say anything, because I have no say in what Walsh is going to do. All I know is that if we keep Curry and play him with Camby, the Knicks are still going to suck. Curry is fat, doesn't play defense, doesn't rebound, doesn't shoot free throws, can't pass out of double teams, turns the ball over, fouls into people, and he has zero work ethic. I could picture the Knicks actually competing for a playoff spot, with Marbury, Crawford, Chandler, Randolph, and Camby. I don't see the Knicks doing anything with Curry. I know it's important to get below the cap by 2010, but Curry's contract runs throught 2011. He has the chance to opt out, but he knows that nobody wants him, so he isn't. What Walsh needs to do is package Curry and Lee for Camby ASAP. If they want Randolph, they better give up some draft picks, because Randolph actually has skills, unlike Curry.

    This Clipper & Nuggets trade of Camby for the 2nd round pick shows the NBA league and the Knicks organization fans how much of an idiot the Knicks President of Operation Donnie Walsh really is.

    The Knicks needed to get rid of Isiah Thomas for one big reason, he kept trading for "Selfish" veteran cancer players that 80% of the NBA teams did not want on their roster. If Isiah could have improve one or two of these cancer-players it would'nt be so bad, but Isiah and his coaching staff made these cancer players worst than what they were on their previous teams.

    To replace Isiah Thomas with Donnie Walsh was not an upgrade for the Knicks if you have any knowledge of Walsh 20 year experience in Indiana. Coach Larry Brown and coach Larry Bird saved Donnie Walsh Job in Indiana. It's something simular to how Mchale saved his ex-teammate Danny Ainge Job lastseason. But 5 or 10 years from now people will say Danny Ainge got the Boston Celtics a Championship.

    Zach Randolph is the worst player on the Knicks roster "on and off the court".

    The Knicks would've got the best out of Zach Randolph for a 2nd round pick trade. Donnie Walsh would have got Big Props all around the NBA league if he would have made that Zach for a 2nd ronud pick trade.

    That "Zach" trade would've gave the Knicks so much leverage in putting "Discipline" in the organization from players attitude, coaches priority, management expectation, and lead to the first step of a serious-certive of Donnie Walsh 2010 Plan. Super Star Players like Lebron James, Wade, Bosh, and ....., would've took the Knicks serious about building a Championship Team.

    Donnie Walsh is an "IDIOT"!
