Toronto Raptors to Buy Out Marcus Camby’s Contract

38-year old Marcus Camby had no interest in being part of the Toronto Raptors’ rebuilding project. So, they’re cutting him loose. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Raptors will buyout the final two years of Camby’s $7.5 million deal: “The Raptors acquired Camby in the recent trade that sent forward-center Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks. Camby said after the trade was agreed upon that he would prefer to play for a title-contending team. Camby, 38, played sparingly for the Knicks last season. The Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls are expected to have interest in Camby if he clears waivers and becomes a free agent, a league source said.”

    I don’t think he’s interested in playing, I think he’s interested in finding a bench he can sit on for a year and get a championship ring at the end of it


    so the miami heat’s new Juwan Howard?

  • Sancheezie

  • Sancheezie

    Wait..so did the Raptors pay him $7.5m? Or no? i would think that an incredible waste of money if they did pay him that? Or did they pay him less, say around $1m?

    camby should just donate half of that to a toronto charity for goodness sakes ..they gave birth to him they can take him out

  • spit hot fiyah

    a buy out usually means less. so that the team saves money and the player can play somewhere he wants to play

  • Dfrance

    Its usually less, but definitely not 6.5 million dollars less. They maybe gave him $5 mill or so.

  • Dfrance

    Use him for what? To keep the bench warm? He’s 38 and his best years are way behind him, he just needs to retire.

  • Dfrance

    I don’t get why any team would be interested. Why not sign a young healthy big man with some upside? The DLeague is full of them.
