Picture: Marcus Camby In Portland Trail Blazers Uniform

We received an email from the Blazers about 6:25 this evening about the Marcus Camby trade. I don't know if this is photoshopped or not, but this is the first picture I've seen of Marcus Camby in a Blazers uniform (came from here). He's not playing tonight, but should be good to go on Friday against the Celtics.

Some web resources about the trade:

After watching him closely for a couple of seasons, I now fall into the first camp: He's tremendously effective. The Clippers were 7.7 points per 100 possessions better with Camby on the floor. He leads the league in rebounding rate. He's also a good facilitator in the high-low game, and leads power forwards (his nominal position as a Clipper alongside Chris Kaman) in assist rate. The kids in the locker room look up to him and the coaching staff thinks he hangs the moon.

Camby is not a great straight-up defender.  He's not going to be handcuffing Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum.  He will block shots, especially when providing help.  The Blazers will take that.

From Dwight Jaynes: Marcus Camby is a great move for Portland

Camby solves a real big problem on defense and the boards and if Brandon Roy is healthy, this team can win a series, depending on matchups. And it's a team you couldn't say that about prior to this deal. Basically, two teams traded players who don't fit their long-term future — and Portland came away with a big advantage.

From Yahoo! Sports: Clippers trading Camby to Blazers

In town in advance of their Tuesday game against the Trail Blazers, the Clippers were having a team dinner at Portland's Ringside steakhouse Monday night when Camby received a call on his cell phone from his agent, Rick Kaplan. Kaplan informed Camby that he would likely be traded to Portland.

    well since there is no number on the jersey, I’d say it was photoshopped. doesn’t he have a lot more tattoos than that?

      Yeah, I am guessing photoshopped as well. Still, seeing that made me smile. Rip City Uprise time!
