Marcus Camby is returning to New York, while the Houston Rockets continue to reshape their roster.
Camby, 38, agreed Monday to rejoin the Knicks in a deal that sends three players and two second-round draft picks to Houston, according to a source.
Yahoo Sports reported that Camby has a three-year, $13.2 million deal.
The Rockets will get guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and second-round picks in 2014 and '15.
Never miss a local story.
Camby, 6-foot-11, will be back in New York where he played from 1998 to 2002. He helped the Knicks make a surprising run to the 1999 NBA Finals.
Though he has battled injuries during his 16-year NBA career, he's still a productive rebounder and shot blocker. He should become a valuable backup at center to Tyson Chandler, last season's NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
