Knicks Notes: Camby, Prigioni, Jeffries

The Knicks will meet with free agent center Marcus Camby in the next few days, but a source told Marc Berman of the New York Post that it won't be in New York.  The get-together will likely take place in Las Vegas as coach Mike Woodson is already there with assistant GM Allan Houston for the U.S. Olympic Team practices.  More out of MSG..

  • The Knicks have interest in Camby but would prefer not to use the $3.09MM mini mid-level exception that he is seeking, a source told Berman.  There's a chance that they could also acquire Camby via sign-and-trade, just like they may wind up doing with Jason Kidd.  Trade chips that could be used include rookie Jerome Jordan, Josh Harrellson, and Toney Douglas.
  • Another scenario is splitting the $3.09MM mid-level exception between Camby and Spanish League point guard Pablo Prigioni, who would take about $700k.  The 35-year-old recently said that he is waiting for the Knicks to reach out to him but his first option is to return to Caja Loboral.
  • The Knicks could use a backup center to Tyson Chandler and have talked with Jared Jeffries about returning for the veteran’s minimum.  Jeffries averaged 4.4 PPG in 18.7 minutes per contest last season.
