As first reported by CSN Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz, the Warriors have acquired the services of power forward Carl Landry. It is a reported two-year, $8 million deal with a player option coming in the second year.
With Golden State’s desire to increase their front court depth, Landry has been linked to the Warriors for several few weeks now which doesn’t make this signing all that surprising. Along with Jarrett Jack and Brandon Rush (who is expected to re-sign with the team very soon), he should be able to provide a scoring punch off the bench and be the number one option to backup David Lee.
A seven-year veteran out of Purdue, Landry averaged 12.1 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Hornets last season where he played 41 games, starting eight of them.
