After being offered the veteran’s minimum exception by the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and the Houston Rockets, Marcus Camby is hoping to decide this week where he will spend the 2013-14 NBA season, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Associated Press Camby had been traded to the Toronto Raptors as part of a deal for Andrea Bargnani. Wishing to play for a team that has a “shot for the championship“, the Raptors bought out his contract. Camby’s agent Rick Kaplan told Mark Berman of KRIV Fox 26 that Houston that Camby would be a “great fit” with Houston. Camby also lives in Pearland, a Houston suburb. Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times goes even further and said that the Rockets are the “likely front-runners” to get Camby. While the Heat are one of three teams on Camby’s list, the Heat is still on Greg Oden’s list of places he would like to play next season, according to Jeff Goodman and Marc Stein of ESPN. Oden worked out today for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, Sacramento Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro, and representatives of the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Goodman and Stein, and will work out for Atlanta Hawks officials before heading to Las Vegas to meeting with the New Orleans Pelicans. Goodman and Stein also reported that Oden had face-to-face meetings with the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs last week. Although Camby scored only 1.8 ppg and had only 3.3 rebounds per game during the 2012-13 season, Oden hasn’t played a game since 2010 because of multiple knee problems. Additionally, Goodman and Stein said none of the teams interested in Oden have made him an official offer yet. On the other hand, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel also feels that the timetable Miami and other teams have on whether or not to sign Oden is likely “to come beyond Camby’s preferred signing timeframe.” Possibly related news is the Bulls waived power forward Malcolm Thomas today. Thomas, who averaged 2.5 ppg in the seven games he played for the Bulls, signed a contract that would have guaranteed him $250,000 if he hadn’t been waived today, according to Johnson.. Since the Bulls are in the luxury would have cost the Bulls even more at the end of the year. Thomas could eventually be brought back depending on how the free agency market unfolds, according to ESPN Chicago’s Nick Friedell. Therefore, Thomas’ return could hinge on whether or not Camby decides to sign with the Bulls. Cowley, however, said that Thomas’ release doesn’t make Camby’s signing “imminent”. “But it gives the Bulls some roster flexibility as they try to round out the bench by adding another low-post presence.”             The post Bulls, Heat, Rockets offer Macus Camby veteran’s minimum appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
