Hearing that Marcus Camby sign-and-trade deal to the #Knicks is almost complete; details coming.

The Knicks answer to Nets getting Dwight Howard. Great move for them imo. Wonder what they gave.

We all know Chandler shuts down Dwight when they match up.

I'm being serious. Camby/Chandler is very solid duo. They aint Dwight but nobody is. They going to need a lot of big bodies now.

When you look at the Dwight/Chandler matchups it's still lopsided as hell in favor of Dwight. He does SLOW him down but Chandler does almost nothing on the other end. They needed Camby.

They also might lose BOTH of their starting 2 guards. Backups especially that arent expected to play a lot like Camby and Kidd wont make a difference. Im sorry but this just wasnt a good off season for the NY Knicks IMO. Sure you got names that were nice 10 years ago and they will have a couple of games of flashes of their past but thats it. Jason Kidd and Camby right now are at the level of below average players.

he did a decent job for short stretches, but he cant guard dwight one-on-one for a whole game. Hell at one point in the season Asik guarded Dwight very well for one half of a game. The second half dwight completely shat on him. What im saying is Chandler did not "shut down" dwight.

You guys cite Camby's age, but he averaged 9 boards per game last season in TWENTY TWO minutes. 14.1 boards per 36 mins. He also played in 59 of 66 or whatever games. Not too shabby for a 38 year old. He's going to be a back up, not sure why some of you are downplaying this signing. It is a very good signing.

The point is that Kidd and Camby are good signings because they fit their roles as back up players.... Camby is a good back up Center behind Tyson and Kidd will be a good back up behind Lin and will contribute at crucial times at the end of games. Solid off season so far for the Knicks IMO.

Honestly its like no one ever learns from previous years when they hype their team up. There is something called chemistry and it doesnt happen overnight. Everyone had the Knicks pegged as the 3 - 4 seed in the east before the season started and they struggled throughout most of the season.

What makes you think if Dwight, DWill, Wallace, and Johnson come together they wont have the same problems?

Johnson is not a Ray Allen and is used to running an iso set. That kills Dwills ability to manage the floor.

Dwight hangs around the paint and that clogs wallace driving lanes. I am not saying it wont work because i think eventually they could play together but to peg them as a contender in the east is a bit premature.

I think he will but only if Dwight is still with the magic at the end of next season which could be a possibility. I like this knicks team as it is though plenty of depth and still not done. The thing that will make the biggest difference this year is training camp though...

Source confirms #Knicks are on verge of acquiring Marcus Camby via sign-and-trade for Toney Douglas, Josh Harrelson, Dan Gadzuric, JJordan.

Potential extra kicker for Marcus Camby sign-and-trade is potentially the #Knicks also keeping their $3.09 million mid-level exception.

If the Knicks get Camby this will be a very good off season for them retaining Lin and Novak is great but I like that they'll have another battle tested vet to go along with Kidd. They'll definitely be in position to compete for a title this year if Woodson can get these guys to gel.

Knicks got talent but it is all about Melo and his ball stopping. No joke.

I also think the Knicks need to go out and get a Chuck Person or similar to teach them D principles with real bigs.

If the Knicks are running around switching and playing man D like last year with two excellent interior defenders -- the coach should be shot. Their D was very good last year but it can be elite if they have their perimeters defenders stay at the arc and force teams into intermediate jumpers with the two bigs clogging the paint.

Why I think Amare might be a pawn for ORL. I just don't understand his role on that squad at all. Talented 25/9 player being wasted IMHO.

Very good pick up, if it goes down that way.

Styles make for matchups. Miami is small, fast and looks for dribble drive and LBJ mismatches.

Knicks will be big, slow but be able to defend the paint extremely well and extend the perimeter defense ALOT with those two.

Kidd. We will have to use all of those assets for Camby unless the Houston Rockets take Douglas, Jordan and the Mavs take Harrellson (Nick Collison potential) and Balkman, Dan Gadzrich cap hold.

Which is the dream scenario for us but if not, It's Kidd for the 3 million, Camby S&T and Lewis for vet min.

Should've went to Miami. He would've started for them.

Even though Camby Made $10M+ Last Year, and Plenty of Money In his Career, He wanted to Play for around $3M and NOT the $1.4M Veterans Minimum Heat can offer.

If Heat wanted to S&T, and Knicks wanted to S&T, I read somewhere that Houston was More interested in the Knicks Package. I guess Houston Did Not want Joel Anthony's Contract. (And Obviusly weren't interested in a Heat 1st Rounder to Make Up For Receiving Joel Anthony's Contract)

I want the knicks to get Camby but what the h*** about our bench? Were giving up 4-5 players and who will we sign in their place? Seems the starters will be longing heavy minutes this year.

Gadz, Jordan, Harrelson, and TD weren't even in the rotation when Woody took over.

Bench: Kidd, Camby, Novak, JR, White possibly Lewis, Jeffries.

ok I was wrong I guess are bench would still be fine. I like that possibly Lewis part, I somehow think he will choose Miami over us since we can both only offer him the vet min.

our bench once shumpert gets back at this point would be Kidd JR Smith Novak (Jefferies maybe) Camby..the only question mark is JJ for the vet..if thats the case pretty damn good..

Spring 2013 lineup

Lin/Kidd
Shumpert/Smith
Melo/Novak/White
Stat/JJ/Novak
Chandler/Camby

Thats 10 deep, dont want more than that as is...

only quesiton is do we sign back Smith for the 2.9 or fill in another SG..we shall see

With the addition of Kidd and Camby the Knicks are probably the East favs going into the 01-02 season.

Helps us out significantly. Very underrated signing.

Before the Rockets got him last season I assumed he was useless more because of his age. He really suprised me on how effective he was when he got minutes. Very solid get for NY.

Nice signing. Camby is going to be yet another year older however still can provide some help with rebounding and post-defense.
Should be a solid backup to Chandler.

Yes, this kid won me over with his limited play last season. Great pick up for a second rounder. I think he's got a bright future in this league.

B/c they fit w/ what Miami does. Kidd is a great get for us. Camby at 39 is more of a role player that might or might not stay healthy. Our depth is shot. Camby might finish the season but you have to pencil minus 20 -30 games off the bat. He stays healthy a very good deal, he gets hurt it hits us harder than it would Miami had they got him.

Nice! He's gonna average 6ppg 9rpg 2bpg in a nice 20 min per game.
All they have to do is try to get Foye and resign Jr.

I wonder if Kmart is available?

Camby is a great pickup for the Knicks! Period. So is Jason Kidd. We didn't need much as it is, just health and a few pieces. We'll see what's shaking in Brooklyn when the season starts, until then... Nets suck! Lottery team! Record speaks for itself.

Don't know why Nets fans even bother to talk smack, as long as basketball is played, the Nets will always be a side show compared to the Knicks. The Knicks play in the world's most famous arena on one of the world's most famous avenue, meanwhile the Nets play across the street from Pathmark.
