Camby is a worse deal. He is always injured and they have a bunch
of younger guys who can block shots (Elson, Chris Andersen).
Camby's good but this might cost them a chance at KMart.
Does Martin still want a maximum contract? That seems like a bit of a stretch. He's rated as the 12th best PF by PER. He regarded as a quality defender, but I doubt he's anywhere close to the player that Elton Brand is, who's the third rated PF.
Camby is a bit lower than Martin in PER, but I'd favor Martin over him too; Martin isn't as injury prone, he's younger, and probably a better defender. Martin vs. Nash, the distinction isn't as clear in my mind - Nash if it's a short term deal, Martin if it's long-term. However, I still think it will be a mistake if anyone gives Martin a max-deal, or tries to build a team around him.
