Rockets have deal for Marcus Camby
By Marc Stein
The Houston Rockets have agreed to terms on a deal to acquire veteran center Marcus Camby from the Portland Trail Blazers, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.
The deal that has been submitted to the league office for approval, sources said, calls for Houston to send guard Jonny Flynn, center Hasheem Thabeet and a future second-round pick to the Blazers for Camby, who has maintained an offseason residence in Houston for some time and has always liked the idea of playing for the Rockets.
It is the second move Portland has made on deadline day as part of a franchise housecleaning thanks to their 20-23 record. The Blazers agreed earlier Thursday to send Gerald Wallace to the New Jersey Nets for Mehmet Okur, Shawne Williams and a protected first-round draft pick.
