Last season, Marcus Camby felt as if the New York Knicks didn’t use him on offense enough. That lead to Camby expressing some frustration, suggesting that he planned and hoped to be a bigger focal point of the Knicks’ offense come the 2013-14 season.
That didn’t work out so well as Camby was shipped to the Toronto Raptors earlier this offseason, then subsequently released by the Raptors in a salary cap move.
That lead to Marcus Camby signing with the Houston Rockets, who now, according to Jonathan Feigen, will release the veteran NBA center:
Rockets will waive center Marcus Camby on Monday, source said. Camby has been unable to come back so far from torn plantar fascia tissue.
It’s not so much a lack of game from Camby, despite his age, as it is Camby continually eating a roster spot.
Torn plantar’s are no fun and the recovery time can be quite extended, so given Camby wasn’t expected to play heavy minutes, the team decided to move on.
