Marcus Camby may be the biggest name on the NBA free agency market at this point after finally clearing waivers with the Toronto Raptors finally deciding to cut the disgruntled veteran.
Camby wants to end his career on a high note with a contending team, which makes sense given his age. Apparently there is plenty of interest for his services, with teams like the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and Houston Rockets lining up to make him an offer.
Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports shared the news on Twitter:
With Marcus Camby having cleared waivers sources said his 3 finalists are the Heat, Rockets and Bulls. He will decide in the next few days

Miami and Houston have been considered the front runners for quite some time now. In Houston, Camby would have to back up Dwight Howard. With the Heat Camby would play a bigger role and have to see the court more as Miami’s depth down low is not all that impressive.
Don’t count out the Bulls at this point either considering the team could really use the depth and figures to be a contender if Derrick Rose actually comes back to take the court.
