The Raptors acquired Camby along with Steve Novak and Quentin Richardson from the New York Knicks in exchange for Andrea Bargnani and a second-round draft pick. If the buyout goes through, the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls have all expressed interest in adding him.

As the 2006-07 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Camby can potentially anchor the defensive end of the floor at age 39 in a reserve role. He played in 24 games in 2012-13, starting four of them while averaging 1.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and a career-low 0.6 blocks per game in 10.4 minutes.

The Knicks signed Camby to a three-year, $13 million contract in July 2012.
