Person familiar with situation: Rockets trade C Marcus Camby to Knicks for 3 players, 2 picks
HOUSTON (AP) ¯¯¯ Marcus Camby has agreed to rejoin the New York Knicks in a deal that sends three players and two second-round draft picks to the Houston Rockets, according to a person with direct knowledge of the move.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the trade.
The Rockets, continuing to reshape their roster after missing the playoffs for the third straight season, will get guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and second-round picks in 2014 and 2015. Camby, meanwhile, returns to New York, where he played from 1998-2002.
Houston obtained Camby from Portland at the trading deadline. He averaged 7.1 points and 9.3 rebounds in 19 games for the Rockets, who traded starting center Samuel Dalembert before last month's draft.
