The Knicks’ trade of Marcus Camby and Steve Novak to the Raptors for Andrea Bargnani can’t be inked officially until July 10, but Camby, 39, has reportedly already asked the Raptors for a buyout so he can become a free agent and join a contender.
According to the NY Post:
Marcus Camby isn’t officially a Raptor yet, but has already asked for either a buyout or trade so he can join a contending club and could soon be on the free-agent market, The Post has learned.
Camby has two years and roughly $7.6 million left on his Knicks contract. But of his final-season wage of $4.2M, only $1.2M is guaranteed. Camby has no plans to retire, according to his agent Rick Kaplan.

J.R. Smith and the Knicks reportedly are working out the details on a contract that will keep the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year with the team for another four years.
The New York Knicks and J.R. Smith agreed to a four-year contract worth $24.7 million on Thursday. As the 2013 Sixth-Man of the Year winner, the 27-year-old Smith averaged 18.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists over 80 contests last season. An erratic gunslinger on the court and a liability off of it, the 6-foot-6, 220 pound Smith is a pricey gamble for New York. Connecting on...
The Knicks roster is slowly…very slowly rounding into shape. With 8 players under contract (9 if you include CJ Leslie) the Knicks are in the hunt for some solid pieces to get their roster to 15. With the backcourt most likely set, besides a 3rd sting point guard to push the pace, the focus is now on their frontcourt and wing players to round out the team.
Free agency has picked...
There’s lots of speculation of what the New York Knicks may or may not do to strengthen their point guard position. One thing the organization and the fans can agree on is everyone would like to see Pablo Prigioni return for a second season. The franchise would like to see Prigioni come back so much that they’ve reportedly offered him a two-year contract.
Pablo Prigioni isn’t...
Now that the Dwight Howard saga has apparently ended, the New York Knicks and the rest of the league will step up their final push to free agency and snatch up the remaining players. In the Knicks case they still have some unresolved business. Chris Copeland is still sought after by many teams, and it seems that the Knicks are priced out of the Cope market. It looks to me that they...
Jason Kidd is wasting no time getting in good with his Brooklyn Nets players. He gave some nice compliments to Deron Williams.

Pablo Prigioni has agreed to return to the New York Knicks.
Prigioni was a 35-year-old NBA rookie last season after a long career in Spain.
According to ESPN’s Jared Zwerling, Pablo Prigioni will re-sign with the New York Knicks. The terms of the deal are still unknown.
In his rookie season in the NBA, the 36-year-old pass-first point guard averaged 3.5 points and 3 assists in 16 minutes off the bench for the Knicks.
Chris Copeland has agreed to sign a two-year, $6.1 million deal with the Indiana Pacers.
The New York Knicks will be unable to match despite Copeland's status as a restricted free agent.
The New York Knicks are looking for a small forward who can shoot from three-point range and defend on the wing, according to a league source.
The Knicks have expressed interest in Carlos Delfino, Francisco Garcia and Dahntay Jones.
After signing Pablo Prigioni, the Knicks have about $1.7 million of their mid-level exception to use on free agents.
