The New York Knicks have traded former UK Wildcat Josh Harrellson and others to acquire center Marcus Camby. The deal is a sign-and-trade with the Houston Rockets. Camby has agreed to a three-year, $13.2 million contract with the Knicks. The Rockets will receive Harrellson, Toney Douglas, Jerome Jordan and two second-round draft picks in exchange for the 16-year veteran center.

Harrellson will join former Kentucky teammates Patrick Patterson and Terrence Jones. Jones was drafted by Houston with the number 18 pick in last month's Draft.
