    In response to Mployee8's comment:

    NBA sources told FOX 26 Sports free agent center Marcus Camby, who is considering signing with the Houston Rockets, recently met with the team's doctors and passed his Rockets physical. Camby's agent, Rick Kaplan, who was not available for comment on Friday, told FOX 26 Sports last week that if Camby became a free agent the Rockets would be "a leading contender" to sign him.

    Houston looks poised to ink Camby to play center behind Howard, Asik & Montiejunas. Houston has 16 players on their roster already and they were sniffing the tires on Mike Miller for a few minutes as well as trying to beat out Chicago for Camby's services.

    [I advocated picking up Camby 2-3 years ago but some here said he was too old ... He's still playing fellows!]

    Anyway... point being that if the Rockets sign Camby that gives them 17 signed players and four centers ... Somebody has to be moved. Could the Camby addition be an indication that Houston may be about to move Asik or is Camby insurance if Montiejunas doesn't cut it in camp?  I'm still holding out hope for a trade ...  Bass or Humphries for Asik with tweaks as needed in picks and/or minimum contracts ($1MM-$3MM). Bass may fit better for Houston giving them a shooter to spread the floor with Howard but Humphries would also be able to relieve Howard some with Camby and still provide plenty of minutes at PF taking some of the heat off Montie, TJones & Smith ... all of whom have little if any playoff experience. Houston would miss Asik's defense if traded but Camby will lessen that blow and Bass's offense or Humphries' rebounding/inside play could balance the loss.

    Why is Camby still playing?  Isn't he eligible for social security now?

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Very unlikely the Rockets would want Humphries.

    Bass and Shavlik for Asik.



    toast!
