Marcus Camby Earns a Few Million Extra

Nuggets center Marcus Camby played his 65th game Wednesday, assuring he’ll receive his full $2 million seasonal bonus for games played. By reaching 65, Camby also is eligible for statistical bonuses, which netted another $1.25 million last season.

Because the Nuggets will pay the dollar-for-dollar luxury tax, a $3.25 million Camby bonus haul would cost them $6.5 million.

“It’s all about just trying to win,’’ said Camby, downplaying his incentives. [Rocky Mountain News]
