Spoke to two people with knowledge of the situation after my Randy Foye
plea post earlier and the feeling was that the Knicks were leaning towards signing Marcus Camby and not Foye, who I'm told is getting interest from the Mavs and the Hawks. And this was before the heat got better by signing Ray Allen. Camby was considering the heat and is also very interested in reuniting in the Big Apple.
Word is the Knicks are bringing Camby in soon for a visit...
One scenario is splitting the $3.09M midlevel between Camby and veteran Spanish League PG Pablo Prigioni, who would take about $800,000 of the pie. Prigioni is 35 years old and one person familiar with the Kicks thinking said, “Don’t erase him from the list yet.’’Camby, once a Knicks fan favorite, was reportedly banished from the Garden by James Dolan so I guess the owner has that whole water under the bridge thing working. Camby, who just turned 38, had a very productive bench role last year for both the Blazers and Rockets. He'd be a nice addition to the front line.
