Free-agent center Marcus Camby has reached agreement to sign with the Houston Rockets, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Camby previously played with the Rockets during the 2011-12 season and has an offseason home there. He joins two other centers in Houston in Dwight Howard and Omer Asik. Camby yearned to sign with a title contender, leading him to the Rockets.

The Toronto Raptors recently bought out Camby from the final two years of his contract after acquiring him in the Andrea Bargnani trade from the New York Knicks.

Camby, 38, played sparingly for the Knicks last season, averaging a career-low 1.8 points. The Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls also had interest in signing him.
