Camby Possibly Headed To Orlando and The Top NBA News

Top Story

Marcus Camby’s name has arisen in multiple trade talks as of late, and the Orlando Magic have been mentioned as potential suitors for the former Defensive Player of the Year. Orlando has been very active in the trading department recently, as they acquired Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark just two weeks ago.

The Magic have been lacking depth up front since they lost backup center Marcin Gortat to the Phoenix Suns in the trade that brought them Richardson, Turkoglu and Clark. Bringing in the former Defensive Player of the Year would certainly be a boost to the team that currently does not have a backup to all-star center Dwight Howard.
