this has nothing to do with asik.

camby is simply an insurance policy at this point, if either dwight or asik go down. Greg Smith was useful last year, but when he played center, the rockets defense was atrocious. this move is to make sure greg smith doesnt play center (yet...hes only 22)

Funny because he was so unhappy about not getting playing time with the Knicks last year.

Probably not going to play much at all. But his only options were Houston and Chicago... he's a 3rd stringer in either scenario.

Good insurance policy though. Needs to get himself healthy, but he is like 50 lol.

Asik's better

He will also be a mentor for Greg smith. Which would great for smith because he struggles to defend the paint.

Since no one can shoot outside the paint, yes it will definitely not work.

2nd Stringer for the Bulls * he would have out played Naz if he stayed Healthy . And him passing a physical at the age of 39 is impressive

Yea this doesn't make sense to me. He kept complaining about his minutes, his agent kept saying he was healthy and able to play and wanted to go somewhere he can get minutes, than he signed as a 3rd stringer? Either he wasn't/isn't as healthy as they claimed, or they are privvy to something on the horizon. Surprised he didn't go to MIA, but he said last year when he was weighing NY/MIA, that after his early career Knicks tenure, he couldn't see himself ever wearing a Heat jersey, so maybe he still feels that way.

They better move Asik for an upgrade at PG.

Not even sure Miami wants him, he's too slow for their style.

Passing a physical is not impressive - they don't conduct an intense workout.

Yea its not really a prime fit, they need bigs who can either shoot, or thrive in pick and rolls, Camby does neither.

Passing a physical at the age of 39 with his injury history is .

#Knicks sent 3 players & two 2nd-round picks for to HOU for Camby last summer. A year later, he's back with HOU. Awful transaction for NY.

It makes total sense for Camby because he and his family live in Houston. I will be forever grateful to him for simply BEING in the trade that got rid of Bargnani. Love you Camby <3

That's a big "if"

Nazr is at least healthy compared to Camby. Camby is better, but there is a reason the Knicks got rid of him
