The New York Knicks officially welcomed their latest acquisitions on Thursday, introducing veterans Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby to the New York media.

Kidd signed a three-year, $9 million dollar deal and re-joins Tyson Chandler. The pair helped the Dallas Mavericks win an NBA championship two seasons ago.

Camby, who was also being sought by the defending champion Miami Heat, comes to the Knicks in a sign and trade deal with the Houston Rockets after the 38-year-old inked a three-year, $13.2 million contract. New York sent Toney Douglas, Josh Harrellson, Jerome Jordan and two future second round picks to the Rockets.

The Knicks were willing to pay a high-price for the veteran, who was apart of the Knicks’ Eastern Conference championship team in 1999.

While New York has yet to make a move to match Houston’s offer to Jeremy Lin, many sources have said it’s only a matter of time – likely a four-year deal worth $28.8 million.

The Knicks would be Lin-sane not match the offer, considering the 23-year-old carried the team during one stretch last season as the team battled injury woes. In 35 games, Lin averaged six dimes and nearly 15 points.

Kidd has also said he looked forward to mentoring the young point-guard.

The Knicks have signed long-range shooters J.R. Smith and Steve Novak. Smith was signed for $2.8 million for two years, while Novak got a juicy four-year, $15 million deal.
