[Introduction] In order to meet the league’s maximum 15-man regular season lineup, the Houston Rockets had to lay off Martin and Williams today
On October 29th, , according to local media reports in Houston, the Rockets officially waived Marcus Camby and Reggie Williams today, and the lineup was finally reduced to the 15 players required by the league.
The result of today’s layoffs is the same as the result of media speculation a few days ago. Camby missed all the preseason games because of plantar fasciitis, so the Rockets had to terminate his contract.
However, according to relevant sources, Camby will stay in the Rockets in another way, and may enter the team’s coaching staff to help the Rockets develop young insiders.
Camby has played in the league for 17 years. He played 24 games for the Knicks last season, averaging 1.8 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
Camby was the No. 2 pick of the 1996 Golden Generation. He averaged 9.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game in his career.
When Reggie Williams failed to play in the last preseason game of the Rockets, some media speculated that he might be fired by the Rockets.
The same is true of today’s results.
Reggie Williams played for the Charlotte Bobcats last season, averaging 9.5 minutes per game and scoring 3.7 points. He played for the Warriors from 2009-11.
