Marcus Camby Wants to Rejoin the Rockets

Josh "JR" Reese

Marcus Camby, sidelined since preseason foot surgery, wants to come back and play with the Rockets. The 39-year-old center spent the better part of the summer this season with the team before a torn plantar fascia led to his release in late October.

“Since I’ve been rehabbing I have been getting a lot of calls from a lot of different teams about my services,” Camby told SportsRadio 610.  

The Rockets are his first choice and has shown interest.

“Houston has called,” Camby said. “They are playing good ball right now, they’re right down the street from me, and that would be the ideal situation.”

Camby has been rehabbing with Russ Paine, the same physical therapist who helped Vikings running back Adrian Peterson return to top form in 2012 after reconstructive knee surgery.

Camby would not elaborate on which other teams have contacted him. But time is running out for him to sign somewhere.

For a player to play in the postseason he has to be added to an NBA roster by March 1st.  Camby seems optimistic that a deal would get done by the deadline.
