Rockets Rumors: Rockets reached out to free agent Marcus Camby?

In Rockets rumors tonight, the Houston Rockets showed interest in signing veteran center Marcus Camby last month, even though the veteran center hasn't played an NBA minute this season.

Per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle's Ultimate Rockets blog, "the Rockets reached out to Marcus Camby several weeks ago, a person with knowledge of the conversation said, but were told that Camby would not be available this season. Camby was waived before the season while struggling to come back from a foot injury, but could return to the NBA next season."

With Houston Rockets center Greg Smith out with a knee injury, the Rockets originally looked to Camby as a possible short-term solution at backup center.

However, the Rockets have called up Dexter Pittman from the D-League for "the remainder of the season and next season, with next season non-guaranteed. The team waived Smith to open the roster spot."
