In an unsurprising move, veteran center Marcus Camby has agreed to join the New York Knicks on a three-year, $13.3 million contract via a sign-and-trade. The third year of the deal has a partial guarantee. New York will send Toney Douglas, Jerome Jordan, Josh Harrelson and draft picks to the Houston Rockets, Camby's previous team.

Camby reportedly wanted more than the veteran's minimum of $1.4 million, all the Heat could offer after Ray Allen agreed to sign with Miami for a three-year, $9.5 million contract. The Rockets were also said to be more interested in a sign-and-trade package from New York than one with Miami.

Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony and Dexter Pittman are the current power forwards/centers on the Heat roster. Miami's meeting with Rashard Lewis went well according to the former Seattle Sonic's agent, but he has yet to make a decision.
