    Default Marcus Camby Traded To Clippers

    UPDATE: Trade is now official and a done deal: http://www.insidehoops.com/nuggets-c...s-071508.shtml

    InsideHoops.com: The Los Angeles Clippers today acquired forward Marcus Camby from the Denver Nuggets. In return, Denver will have the option to exchange second round picks with the Clippers in 2010. As a result of the trade, the Nuggets receive a $10,000,000 trade exception, which can be used until one year from the completion of the trade.



    Original Report:

    http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_9891201

    The Nuggets will trade veteran center Marcus Camby to the Los Angeles Clippers in order to create salary cap space, a source close to the team told the Denver Post Tuesday evening.

    Denver will receive a future second-round draft pick, the source said.

    Trading Camby, considered one of the top defensive centers in the NBA, will save Denver around $20 million, the source said.

    yeah I cant believe that. I guess the cap space was important enough although Im pretty sure they are still at or over the cap. can camby play the 4? be the first big off the bench?

    pple keep sayin cambys overrated. dont understand the mans game. he aint a shutdown defender but hes top help defender. highly efficient w/ less than 3 fouls and more than 3 blocks in the west, not easy to do specially if youre skinny.

    also has intangibles that bigs dont have. hes one of the best role players, prollyy the best big man role player in the league.

    Camby can play a PF actually. But that's beside the point. Because he sucks. Bad. Single most overrated player in the NBA. This is exactly something that Denver needed because Camby was literally useless for them. Now they can start making some real moves and actually build something decent, make something of their team. Good start for them, no doubt.

    the retooling process has begun i guess. i like the fact this opens up a spot for nene in the starting rotation. i don't think this is the last move you'll see the nuggets make this offseason though.

    Yeah right. Camby is all stats. He protects nothing. There are guys out there who protect the rim with their presence. Camby isn't one of them. If he is what people say he was, very few teams could score on Denver because they'd have a great anchor who'd make people pay for attempting to drive. That option would be taken away. However, it's not. It never was. Denver was allowing layup drills to all they played against. Camby was making no impact. Likely even hurting them.

    Nuggets didnt think they could get more than a mere 2nd rounder for their starting C 2 years out of being DPOY?
