NBA: Trail Blazers Acquire Marcus Camby From The Clippers


The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired center Marcus Camby from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for guard Steve Blake, forward Travis Outlaw and cash considerations.

All three players are in the final years of their respective contracts and the deal will give Portland a much-needed presence in the middle with both Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla out for the season.

Camby leads the Clippers with an average of 12.1 rebounds and 99 blocks, and has chipped in 7.7 points with 3.0 assists in 51 games this season. He is the league's second-leading rebounder.


There is pretty much nothing else I can add that hasn't been summed up in the above article.  The Trail Blazers needed a force in the middle and have chosen Camby to be that man. 

The Greg Oden project clearly hasn't lifted off the way they expected and with the playoff race in the Western Conference so tight they needed to do something. Good, solid move.
