In an expected move, the Toronto Raptors are set to buy out veteran center Marcus Camby in order to allow him to go play for a contender for his remaining years in the NBA.
It sounds as if Camby will not have to wait long to find a new home, as both the Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls reportedly have interest.
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports broke the news first via Twitter:
The Raptors are expected to buy out newcomer C Marcus Camby on the final 2 years of contract soon, a source told Y! LAC, CHI, HOU interested

Again, not a shocking move considering Camby has been vocal all offseason about his desire to play for a contender. Of course, it comes down to whether or not he believes the Bulls or Rockets can be contenders as well.
In either scenario, Camby would have to sit on the bench. Houston is a hot destination right now because of Dwight Howard coming to town. That’s not to say Chicago is not a contender, but there is a the question mark that is Derrick Rose’s knee.
We’ll have the latest when the move goes official.
