04:34 PM ET 05.20 | New York Knicks big man Marcus Camby may have played just three minutes during this year's postseason, but his agent says there's nothing wrong with the 17-year pro and he's ready to return next season. Even though Camby proved to be a minor benchwarmer for New York during its successful season, he's still due to make $8.55 million over the next two seasons. Only $1 million of his $4.2 million salary for 2014-15 is guaranteed, but that still leaves the team on the hook for over $5 million through next season. For a player that averaged 1.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 24 games this season, it's a hefty price tag that plays into the team's lack of cap flexibility, and with no plans for retirement in Camby's future, this contract looks like a bust for New York.

LMAO I feel sorry for the Knicks. "No signs of retirement". hell yeah some dumb GM gave him a multi-year deal, so why not?

1 million is guaranteed. I wish I can make a million and get court side seats.

Knicks did a terrible job managing the end of the roster and their cap....

now they have almost 8M dollars committed to Kidd and Camby next year for basically nothing....4 million for Novak,

seriously- they are going to pay Kidd, Camby and Novak about 12M next year....that is just awful
