Clippers got Camby for even less than we thought

The LA Clippers acquired Marcus Camby from the Nuggets Tuesday night, apparently in exchange for a future second-round pick. Those initial reports turned out to be wrong, however. The Nuggets acquired the right to exchange second-round picks in 2010 with the Clippers instead.

Obviously this was purely a salary dump by the Nugs, but this is almost robbery from a Clippers standpoint. LA doesn't even give up a pick - at worst they'll simply move down in the draft - and gets a great shot blocker in return. Granted, Camby isn't Shaq - or even Elton Brand - but when you give almost nothing up to get him, Camby seems a lot more attractive.
