Sam Amick of SI.com reports...
Source confirms Portland sends C Marcus Camby to Houston for Thabeet, Jonny Flynn, and Rox 2012 2nd-round from Minny.
Camby, 37, averaged 3.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game in 22.4 minutes for the Blazers.
Thabeet, 25, is a project (bust) who was taken with the No. 2 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He's played just 23 minutes this season for Houston. Flynn, 23, was the No. 6 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft and has not lived up to that standing yet. He's played in just 11 games for the Rockets this season. Both players are in the final year of their contracts as team options for 2012-2013 were not picked up.
The Blazers shed a little less than $3 million in salary on this year's books in this scenario.
ALSO: Blazers reportedly agree to trade Gerald Wallace to the New Jersey Nets.
