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
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.

(this all depends on how much they gave Camby).
