A source with knowledge of the situation has told HOOPSWORLD the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing a deal which would send center Marcus Camby to the west coast.

With Elton Brand departing for Philadelphia, the Clippers have around $12 million to spend this summer. Since LA is under the salary cap, the Clippers could absorb Camby's salary without giving Denver anything in return. However, it is expected that if a deal is consummated, the Nuggets would get at least one draft pick in return.

For the Clippers, the deal would give the team a formidable frontline of Chris Kaman and Camby to complement the backcourt play of Baron Davis and rookie Eric Gordon.

The deal would help lessen the Nuggets' payroll and give the team more financial flexibility moving forward. The 34-year-old Camby is due to make $8 million this season and $7.65 million in the final year of his deal in 2009-10.

The Clippers reportedly had dialogue this weekend about acquiring Zach Randolph from the New York Knicks in a deal that would have accomplished a similar goal for the Knicks.

The source emphasized that no deal has been completed as of yet. Stay tuned to HOOPSWORLD for the latest.

if this went through, it wouldn't be good for the clipps, i don't think camby or kaman are capable of playing the 4.

The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed in principal on a trade with the Denver Nuggets to acquire center Marcus Camby as their replacement for Elton Brand, according to NBA front-office sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Clippers will only have to surrender a second-round pick to acquire Camby, who is being jettisoned by the Nuggets purely for payroll relief.

The Los Angeles Clippers, exactly one week after finding out they had lost their face of the franchise, have rebounded with a significant trade acquisition.

The Clippers on Tuesday agreed to terms on a deal with the Denver Nuggets to acquire center Marcus Camby as their replacement for Elton Brand, according to NBA front-office sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Clippers will only have to surrender a future second-round pick to acquire Camby, who is being jettisoned into the Clippers' salary-cap space vacated by Brand to generate payroll relief for the Nuggets.

A trade call with the league to approve the deal has been completed, sources said, clearing the way for the teams to announce the swap later Tuesday.

Camby, 34, is coming off a productive season in which he averaged 9.1 points, 13.1 rebounds and 3.61 blocks for the Nuggets, who won 50 games to claim the final playoff spot in what is regarded as the most competitive conference race in league history.

But the Nuggets have yet to advance out of the first round with their Allen Iverson-Carmelo Anthony-Camby core and, according to sources, opted to shed the remaining two years on Camby's contract (worth nearly $15 million) to create the flexibility that could allow for more changes.

The Nuggets had the league's fourth-highest payroll last season and are required to pay $13,572,079 in luxury taxes for last season by July 23.

07-15-2008, 09:57 PM
this trade is not as lopsided as the gasol trade though.

basically, it's Marcus Camby for cap space+draft pick.

Nuggets need some cap space, because of what they're going through right now.

but I don't think either Camby or Kaman can play the PF position, but I might be wrong. Clippers get a little better, but they're still poor offensively.

Baron Davis
Eric Gordon
Al Thornton
Marcus Camby
Chris Kaman

it's decent, but not good enough for the western conference.

Then thatís a pretty stupid move. Clippers need more offense and a true PF, and they go out n get a good defender instead. J Smith would have been a better fit. He plays D, hes young and he also scores like 20 points a game. Still, Nuggets gave a good player for nothing.. wow

The Heat would then be over the salary cap. The Clippers have the cap space to take on a big contract ever since Elton Brand opted out. It doesn't make sense that the Clippers would trade for Camby unless they have another deal in mind. If the Heat traded for Camby without giving up a player there salary cap number would have increased to over 70 million which Pat doesn't want. Plus Camby is 34 and an injury concern. Camby may do well next season, but I think it would have made more sense to try and create enough space to land Josh Smith or Andre Iguodala. I guess the Clippers want to move Kaman or Camby to the four and see what happens. All in all it was an unexpected move on the part of the Clippers.

The Nuggets wanted to clear salary, not add it which is why the Nuggets dealt Camby to the Clippers.

This makes Denver front office look worse than Memphis.

It really does. Sad but true.

I'm still hoping against hope that the FO has done this as a preliminary move to get a big trade exception ($10mil) and actually use it to make an acquisition that justifies this move. I don't have much confidence in that happening at this point, though.

And even if it does, giving Marcus away for a mere future 2nd rounder just simply cannot be justified in any possible way, by any stretch of the imagination, no matter how they try to spin it (and spin it they will, I'm sure).

Bottom line: He was worth a hell of a lot more than that.

So essentially the Clippers traded Brand/Maggette for Baron Davis/Camby. Though it sounds BAD, it really isn't that bad

C - Kaman
PF - Camby
SF - Al Thornton
SG - Cuttino Mobley
PG - Baron Davis

Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan, Brevin Knight, Shaun Livingston, Tim Thomas, Marcus Williams coming off the bench

That's actually a pretty good starting 5, and may be better than their previous starting 5. Lets not forget, Maggette was coming off the bench, Thornton is really developing into a stud... and for anyone that says "How can they play with 2 Centers?", take a look bad at Camby's years in New York where he was playing Power Forward.

I see them doing better than the year before last (and obviously last year)

ARMIN12NBA
07-16-2008, 02:15 AM
The Clippers made a great deal for a few reasons and here they are:

Marcus Camby is a great defensive player who CAN play the PF. He is 6 foot 11 inches and basically only shoots 15-18 footers. He will not take up the lane for Kaman to operate and he is very athletic so he could guard almost any 4 in the league.

People, the Clippers are NOT losing a 2nd round pick here. What is lost in this, is the fact that the Nuggets and Clippers will actually be SWAPPING picks in 2010 if the Nuggets choose to do so. Basically, the Clippers will end up with a 2nd round pick anyways so technically, they just traded nothing for Marcus Camby.

This is the best reason of them all. Now, in 2010, the Clippers will have Marcus Camby, Tim Thomas, and Cuttino Mobley off their books, which will allow them to participate in the Lebron, Wade, and Bosh sweepstakes. They will have as much cap room as anybody in the league. And lets not forgot, the Clippers play in Los Angeles and every player wants to play and live in LA. The Clippers are now major players in 2010.

From a basketball standpoint I don't understand it at all for Denver. Camby was the perfect big for them because he needed no touches to be effective. If they were THAT desperate they may have been able to get someone to take Nene or KMart. Guess not. Their owner must really need to get under the luxary tax. I beleive the owner saves something like $20 million by making this move. I think Camby and Kaman will play perfectly next to each other. Camby will slide down to the 4 and should be athletic to compete and some nights dominate his man!

no kidding seriously i thought being a gm took professional skill but after watching the nuggets lately i think it is safe to say that almost all of us could have done a better job

Since the Clips were lookin at Zach Randolph first, does anyone think there's a chance the Clips did this so they can deal Camby to the Knicks for him?


I hope so, but dont think so.

Its all about the cap. It makes sense for the nuggets. Camby is overrated, and is aging. If they can get rid of his huge salary, thats and accomplishment enough.

Okay, so it's offical folks, the State of Colorado has banned defense in basketball games. I mean, aside from the fact that Denver was ALREADY giving up 120 a game...this will result in 150 a game, with Melo soon asked to play the 4 cause Nene and K-Mart will be injured.

I hear Kwame Brown is a FA Denver...

hahaha, that is too funny, but sadly i agree with you, melo will hate to play the 4 esspecially against such amazing biggs like CB4, i think he will cry like kobe did last if nene of kenyon get injures, which there is 100% chance of

this might be one of the worst of trades in recent memory.

the best defensive big man in the nba today for the rights to swap 2nd round picks, what a freaking joke.

yeah the nuggets cleared cap room, but they could have gotten way more than this for a guy of camby's calibur. heck a lot of teams in the east would have overpaid for camby because of the addition of brand to the conference and solutions to try to stop dwight howard and kevin garnett.

i have to say, i hope after this move, the nuggets finish with the worst record in basketball because this was just a god awful trade.

i would have loved the c's to trade their 2nd rounder for Camby to back up/start for perk.

alright this is definitely the dumbest trade in the last few years. Camby is a player who plays on a contending team. The clippers are not the place he should be playing. Yeah i know they have Baron Davis, but we all know he went there for the money. This team is nowhere near even contending for a playoff spots.

I think the Clips basically robbed Camby. What the hell are the nuggets thinking! This was the only player who played defense on their team. Now Carmelo and AI are gonna be even more selfish and this teams chances of contention in the near future are basically finished.

no way we could take on his salary. Plus were hoping perk can develop into something special. Hopefully Pat O'Bryant gets his act 2gether around champions.

Clippers i believe will take the nuggets 8th spot next season. They may not sign anymore stars but they could still sign some role players

I hope Kaman has more offensive game up his sleeve.
His rpg are definitely going to go down playing alongside Camby.

I think Baron Davis might average 20 shots per game on this team next season. He's going to be chucking again, like he did in Charlotte. I don't know who is going to give consistent offense aside from him & sophomore Al Thornton, who should average AT LEAST 15-18 ppg on this team.

Denver has officially lost their damn mind! Their D was garbage with him, now...... Forget about the playoff one and out they've grown accustomed to! I know they want cap space but come on....plus its a 2ND RD PICK NOT EVEN A 1ST!!!!! Thats just insult to injury.


As far as thee Clipps things are really looking good. I move the Kaman over to PF, Tim Duncan style. Now you got Davis/Mobley/Thorton/Kaman/Camby with Gordon coming off the bench? Not too shabby if you ask me!
