Marcus Camby is back where he enjoyed playing the most — on the Garden stage.

The 7-foot defensive specialist out of Hartford will get the chance to be a Knick again, for at least two seasons. The Knicks won the Camby sweepstakes last night, but lost a big chunk of their Las Vegas Summer League team in a sign-and-trade with the Rockets for the center.

Camby, 38, agreed to terms on a 3-year, $13 million deal, according to an NBA source. Only $10 million is guaranteed.

In the sign-and-trade, the Knicks gave up young centers Josh Harrellson and Jerome Jordan, rookies last season, Toney Douglas' expiring pact and two future second-round draft picks. The geriatric Knicks are going for it all next season.
