 Houston,  TX (SportsNetwork.com)  -  The Houston  Rockets  have waived  center
 Marcus Camby and guard Reggie Williams to reach the roster limit of 15.
 
 Camby  signed  with Houston in late  July after the Toronto Raptors bought out
 his contract earlier in the month. Toronto had acquired the 17-year veteran as
 part of the trade that sent forward Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks.
 
 The  39-year-old  Camby appeared  in 24  games for the  Knicks last season and
 averaged  1.8 points with 3.3 rebounds. He was traded to New York in July 2012
 after spending the latter part of the 2011-12 campaign with the Rockets.
 
 Houston  acquired Camby  on March  15, 2012  in a  deal with  Portland and  he
 averaged 7.1 points with 9.3 rebounds in 19 games, including 13 starts, during
 his short stint with the Rockets.
 
 The  Massachusetts product was selected by the Raptors with the second overall
 pick of the 1996 draft and has career averages of 9.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and
 2.4 blocks in 973 career games (786 starts) with the Raptors, Knicks, Nuggets,
 Clippers, Trail Blazers and Rockets.
 
 Williams,  a four-year  veteran  from VMI,  has averaged  8.6  points and  1.6
 assists in 177 NBA games with Golden State and Charlotte.
