One of my favorite Clippers ever! Hated how we traded him when he loved it here so much. Camby turns us into title FAVORITES.

but I will add one point, he is 38, Shaq wasn't even that productive at 38. Just food for thought

I guess the youth movement from 2 years ago has ended , huh? Now the older the better?

Wow this is great! It would solidify our front line with blake dj odom and trey and would make us a waaay better team defensively and strengthen our bench. It most likley would make us roll the dice on gomes as a backup 3 unless we get someone for real, real cheap. Dont get to excited guys, i heard he wants to go somewhere and start, but then again I would start him over dj lmao. I doubt Camby would want to come back here, I also doubt we got the money for him. This will be amazing..Remember when I said lets get him? Smile

Last year at 37 he still looked the same. Dude doesn't age. He's going to be an effective defender and rebounder till 40.

Its unlikely we'll get him. all we have is 1.5mil camby doesnt want that. he wants 3mil or more. we can do a S&T with HOU to get it to 4mil. HOU wants a 1st rounder. camby isnt worth a 1st rounder. if they take gomes too then ill say yes. HOU trying to collect 1st rd picks to get DH12.

Lakers just gave nash a 3 year deal, and he's 38! He'll be 41 by the end of his contract! Probably an option on the last one!

While I agree that it's both unlikely and risky, if we can get him we should, if only to have a personal coach for DJ.

We have 1.9 point something mill BAE. Not a big difference from the 3 mill. I agree though Houston trying to S&T Lee and Camby. Which is why both are meeting with teams that can't afford them.

A 40 y/o Marcus Camby>DeAndre Jordan

Hope we can bring him back!

when he was w/ the rockets, he said he wanted to play 3 more years.

he lives in houston

his kids love houston after moving around from LA to POR

he wants to win a championship

everywhere he plays he said that's where he wants to retire

we traded marcus to have enough space to land...LeBron James (remember that lol)

while it would be nice to have him back and serve as that backup big, i feel he's staying w/houston (if they want him back). if he's gonna get the minimum, no way he breaks up his family again for it. but if he does come back to LA, my guess is it's w/ the lakers and not us (*gulp*)

We can do a sign and trade with Gomes or Trey or Leslie for Camby but who in their right mind would want Gomes.

Hed rather sign with MIA as with us for the BAE. Thus he wont come & there are too many suitors that can offer more.

He has pass on MIA. Only looking at NYK and BKN. we can give more thru a S&T.

Yes, clips don't have enough to offer, wish they'd just amnesty Gomes already. Camby, would give a huge upgrade 2nd unit and would help DJ and Trey. The only way a trade for a first rounder is package camby and lee for Gomes, first rounder, and Leslie. Rockets won't do that and Clips shouldn't give up on Lesie, I think he may have more upside than Trey.

Don't forget, LAC can use the Aminu TPE of $2.8m for Camby in a S&T. Camby's been looking for a $3m deal, so not a huge difference.

A 38yr old Journeyman center turns us into title Favorites? That's the move that puts us above OKC/MIA?

LOL... I agree. This doesn't turn us into the favorites at all.

But I LOVED MARCUS CAMBY when he played for us here. Plays hard and plays with heart. Good leader. Great backup for Deandre and can teach him some things.

#DreamBig Let's get him!

is the biannual exception different than the mini MLE ? and thought that it was worth $3.09m not the $2m or less that people are quoting here ?

i love how people seem to say that we are no where near okc when the head to head matchups say otherwise. we beat them 3 out of 4 last season, without billups and a solid backup center. if we were to actually land camby, he would be a great addition and our team would be sick. if we managed to trade gomes for future considerations, we would free up salary to go out and sign a backup 3. but bringing back al thornton to backup butler wouldnt be a bad alternative

starting 5: cp3, crawford/billups, butler, bg, dj

bench: ebled, crawford/billups, thornton, odom, camby, trey. try to tell me that the clippers are not a deep team and a threat to come out of the west. we can dream of camby coming here, but if we did pull it off that would make everyone giddy. even those who try to portray themselves as constructive critics of this team, even though they sound more like debbie downers would be excited.

We were already better than OKC last year beating them 3 out of 4. Scott Brooks even said the match-up against Clippers were the toughest for their team and yes adding a backup Center in Camby who rebounds wells, plays defense and ability to to score 10 points and hit free-throws make us the favorite. Against MIA maybe not yet tho.

Erupt we are already arguably the deepest team in the NBA and one of the mosy dangerous. Adding Camby would be huge, 38 years old or not.

Just like Grant Hill, injuries in Camby's prime has helped him preserve his mileage into his late 30s. As I've said before, you can never have enough depth in the center position.

although im still mad at Felton for leaving a while back, if we were to sign and trade foye for camby. And amnesty gomes and bid for brand we would be favorites to win, we would have so much depth haveing nearly 8 to 10 players who can start.

depth chart:

CP3/Bledsoe

Billups/Crawford/Leslie

Butler/Odom

Griffin/Brand/Odom/Thompkins

DJ/Camby

If we get Camby we're not even gonna try Brand. We have Lo for a reason, and Brand is a C!

Exactly why we should go after someone worth getting that we can actually get: Camby

makes about as much sense as bringing back Brand. Let's get younger and faster,,unless you guys are done with running and want to play nice half court games.

OKC,,think about them,,run and speed,,with a bunch of 37 year olds,,how we gonna keep up?

OKC has big defense, right now it is not like we are gonna get such a big piece with the little money we have unless FO pulls a stunner! What young guys with good defense can you name that are in our price range?

highly highly unlikely. the clippers have been doing this for years. they probably plant stories in the media to make it seems like the front office is doing something

That's actually what I'm worried about. DJ clearly was influenced by Camby when he was younger because his first priority is always to get weak side blocks, always leaving his man open for a dunk. DJ is awful at man on man defense, and to be honest, Camby isn't so great in that respect either. He's made at living blocking the shots of people that don't know he's coming.
