Marcus Camby, through his agent, released a statement which cast doubts on his future
“It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t given a meaningful opportunity to contribute last season in New York. I was really looking forward to the upcoming year as a chance to show the organization what they missed out on last year, and pushing our team towards the Finals.
“I have nothing but positive things to say about the city of Toronto and its great fans, having been drafted by the Raptors 17 years ago. Given that my goal at this point in my career is to have a shot at a championship, however, I’ll have to evaluate my options going forward. I’ve enjoyed a great career, and under the right circumstances I hope to continue making an impact in the league.”
It would be simply fantastic if Camby is waived and then picked up by another team, as it would mean a savings of about $6.5M through 2014-15, including $3.4M coming off the books this summer, thus putting the Raptors in a position to at least sign some sort of free-agent by getting under the cap (assuming they amnesty Kleiza).
