Live TrackerFree Agent Showdown • Rockets Have More To Offer Howard Than Nets

HOUSTON (AP) – The Houston Rockets traded center Marcus Camby to the New York Knicks for guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and future second-round picks.

Earlier Wednesday, when the NBA’s moratorium on trades ended, Houston dealt point guard Kyle Lowry to Toronto for a future first-round lottery pick and forward Gary Forbes.

The Rockets have been collecting draft picks for a potential package to entice Orlando to send All-Star center Dwight Howard their way. The Lowry deal was in place several days ago, and the Camby deal was agreed to on Monday.

The 38-year-old Camby will return to New York, where he played from 1998-2002. Yahoo Sports reported that Camby’s deal was for three years and $13.2 million.
