Marcus Camby doesn't want to be one of those guys hanging around in the NBA into his 40s if it means sitting at the end of the bench.

The Portland center, who turns 37 in March, is under contract through next season. But that could be it for him.

"I'll finish out my contract. I don't know (after that),'' Camby, making $8.45 million this season and $9.26 million in 2011-12, said in an interview with FanHouse about uncertainty beyond then. "It depends on how my body feels. It depends on the situation that I'm in. If I'm in the rotation, then I'm fine with that. I think I've got too much pride to be the 11th or 12th man.''

I'd be very surprised if he did. Didn't he just sign that new 2 or 3 year extension?

It was a 2 year ext. He's saying he'll finish out his deal though.

I have always liked him. I guess I might not get my wish of him of him having another tour for the Knicks.

Nah, he will stick around for a while. Why would you pass up that paycheck? Bigs get signed forever

him and kg are the best big man pick n roll defenders I have ever seen. ..also in high post he was a good passer, could hit the lil awkward j, and one of best rebounders. overall basketball iq was terrific and see him coaching or an assistant somewhere when he retires.

He should sign with the Thunder and make one last run for a ring.

He can STILL be very productive! I mean when it comes to rebounding and shot-blocking...he is up there with the best even at 36. A guy like him can be very serviceable even in his 40s. His injury history isnt good though.

he should have been in the all star game at least once

it's sad that he never was voted in........ and someone like jamal maglorie was in the all star game, mo williams, and antonio davis ?

I wouldn't be surprised... Guy could probably still be a serviceable center but he will be 38.
