Agent: Rockets 'a leading contender' to land Camby if he becomes free agent

Posted: Updated:

The Houston Rockets are "a leading contender" to land center Marcus Camby according to his agent Rick Kaplan if he becomes a free agent on Sunday, which is expected.

The Toronto Raptors, who acquired Camby in a trade with the New York Knicks last week, bought out the remaining $7.5 million on his contract and placed him on waivers on Friday.

"If Marcus becomes a free agent as we expect on Sunday the Rockets are a leading contender for where he'll end up next season," Kaplan said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports

"He had a very positive experience there. It's his adopted hometown. He'd be a great fit with the organization. It's premature right now. We'll see what happens in the next few days."

Camby, who has a home in the Houston suburb of Pearland, played in 19 games for the Rockets during the 2011-12 season after being acquired in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Rockets traded Camby to the Knicks in July of last year.
