Marcus Camby Warming to Blazers

“I’m still trying to get my thoughts together,” Camby said by phone Tuesday afternoon. “It’s been only 24 hours. Hearing the news at a dinner that we had, that was real tough knowing in the next 24 hours I wasn’t going to be here. It was pretty intense and pretty nerve-wracking all at the same time.

“I had a lot of doubts and I had a lot of issues about what was going to be next for myself.”

Meeting with Blazers officials on Tuesday helped allay some of his concerns.

“It seems like a great town and a first-class organization,” Camby said. “I already know they have a great fan base here. I’m feeling a whole lot better today than yesterday.”
