Wade 'fine' after surgery

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade of the NBA champion Heat had surgery Monday on his left knee and is expected to need up to eight weeks to recover.

Wade can begin therapy immediately and the Heat said the All-Star guard is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The procedure took 20 minutes, and Wade wrote on his Twitter page Monday afternoon that he is "doing fine."

Wade was bothered by knee pain and swelling throughout the postseason but played in all 23 playoff games. He had fluid removed midway through Miami's second-round series with Indiana and needed treatment several times a week during Miami's run to the title.

Camby returning to Knicks, reports say: Marcus Camby is returning to New York, while the Rockets continue to reshape their roster.

Camby, 38, agreed to rejoin the Knicks in a deal that sends three players and two second-round draft picks to Houston, the Associated Press reported. Yahoo Sports reported Camby's deal was for three years and $13.2 million.

The 6-foot-11 Camby will be back in New York where he played from 1998-2002.

The Rockets will get guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and second-round picks in 2014 and '15.

Though Camby has battled injuries during his NBA career, he remains a productive rebounder and shot-blocker even after 16 seasons.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 1996 draft and native of Connecticut became a fan favorite before the Knicks dealt him Denver in 2002. He should become a valuable backup at center to Tyson Chandler.

Also, Steve Novak is returning to the Knicks with a four-year deal worth $15 million.

The team claimed Novak after he was waived by San Antonio and went on to lead the NBA in 3-point shooting at 47.2 percent. Novak averaged 8.8 points in 54 games.

Howard update: The machinations on a complicated, four-team trade to send Magic center Dwight Howard to Brooklyn were moving forward Monday, according to several reports. It would involve 10 players, several of whom would need to be signed and traded for salary cap purposes, and the participation of the Cavaliers and Clippers.

The Magic would receive four first-round draft picks — three from the Nets, who would also sign and trade Brook Lopez to Orlando. The Magic requested Lopez's medical records Monday, a sign that team officials are ready to consummate a deal, provided that they are satisfied with the center's health.

The Nets were awaiting medical records on Howard, who is recovering from back surgery. Under the current deal, the Nets would also obtain Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and Earl Clark from Orlando.
