This would be the final solution to ending Jeffries playing time as the starting Center on this team. Anybody but Jeffries would help this team at Center...Camby would be a drastic improvement.This was on ESPN's rumor mill today:
"We noted at the end of last week that with the Clippers seemingly out of playoff contention, there was a chance Marcus Camby might get traded.
The thinking goes that teams that have inquired about Camby's availability previously were quickly rebuffed, but now that Mike Dunleavy is out as coach and it looks like another lost season for the Clips, they could be open to something now.
If that's the case, CBS Sports' Ken Berger reports today that both the Knicks and Nuggets "are intrigued by the possibility of bringing him back for an encore."
But Berger is quick to note Camby will likely only get dealt under two scenarios: if the Clippers get a solid talent in return, or they free up some more cap space to sign a max free agent this offseason.
If that's the case, a possible scenario would be the Knicks sending over Darko Milicic. Both Camby and Milicic are making in the 7-million range this season, and Milicic has an expiring contract.
Milicic has also asked for a buyout this season, so the Clips could buy him out once they trade for him, which could save them a little money.
But if the Clippers wanted to free up some serious cap space, they'd likely need to involve another player on their team that has at least one year left on his deal, and trade him along with Camby for expiring contracts, since Camby's deal is up at the end of this season."
I would LOVE this. Camby is an expiring contract and we would possibly be able to resign him in the offseason for a dismally small amount. This makes Lee a bit more expendable and we could even put a lineup of Duhon, Chandler, Gallo, Lee and Camby out there. That would be a nice way to finish up the season. Not to mention Camby is a noticeable player that we could use to HELP draw in LeBron (he's not even close to enough to make the whole difference but he could help if we resign him in the offseason). He also has great leadership skills and was awesome for us during that magical 1999 run. I love this guy and would love to add him for the rest of the year. Especially if it means getting rid of Darko
