The Rockets will get the Knicks’ second round picks in 2014 and 2015. New York understands that quality big men in the NBA are a rarity and although Camby is coming towards the end of his career, he can be a valuable piece on the roster. Camby will be great reserve center for the Knicks and can provide the team with rebounding and defense.
The former Knick has agreed to a three-year, $13.2 million deal with the franchise.
