Though the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors trade that has the Knicks acquiring Andrea Bargnani for Steve Novak and Marcus Camby is currently on hold being reworked, Camby has already voiced his opinion, seeming disappointed and hesitant to play for Toronto as he seeks a “shot at a championship.”
Camby was drafted in 1996, second overall by the Toronto Raptors.
According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN NY:
“It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t given a meaningful opportunity to contribute last season in New York. I was really looking forward to the upcoming year as a chance to show the organization what they missed out on last year, and pushing our team towards the Finals.
“I have nothing but positive things to say about the city of Toronto and its great fans, having been drafted by the Raptors 17 years ago. Given that my goal at this point in my career is to have a shot at a championship, however, I’ll have to evaluate my options going forward. I’ve enjoyed a great career, and under the right circumstances I hope to continue making an impact in the league.”
