Portland, OR (Sports Network) - The Portland Trail Blazers, in the midst of a first-round playoff series against the Phoenix Suns, signed forward/center Marcus Camby to a two-year contract extension on Tuesday.

Portland, in need of another frontcourt stalwart with both Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla out for the season with injuries, traded for Camby in February, sending to the Clippers Travis Outlaw, Steve Blake and cash considerations.

Camby has since averaged 7.0 points, 11.1 rebounds, 1.13 steals and 2.04 blocks in 23 games with the Blazers, helping them go 17-6 down the stretch to grab the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference.

"Portland felt right to me since I got here and the support from the team, fans and organization has been incredible," said Camby. "I'm looking forward to continuing my career as a Trail Blazer and think this team can do something special."

In 14 seasons, Camby has averaged 10.4 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.58 blocked shots with Toronto, New York, Denver, the L.A. Clippers and Portland.
