FIRE SALE IN PORTLAND? CAMBY DEALT TO HOUSTON FOR THABEET, FLYNN

It's a full on firesale in Portland.

The Trail Blazers have agreed to trade center Marcus Camby to the Rockets for Hasheem Thabeet, Jonny Flynn and a second-round pick, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.

Camby will pair with Samuel Dalembert in Houston to give the Rockets a strong interior duo, along with Luis Scola at power forward. The Rockets are currently sitting in eighth in the Western Conference and with this trade, obviously are looking to make a strong playoff push.

The Blazers give up Camby, who is 37, is averaging 3.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season. It's obvious that Portland is looking to start over after injuries decimated the roster and the team has completely fallen apart this season. Earlier in the day, Portland completed a trade to send starting forward Gerald Wallace to New Jersey for basically cap flexibility and a draft pick.

And yes, the Blazers now have both Greg Oden and Hasheem Thabeet on their roster.
