Carl Landry Signs With Golden State Warriors

Carl Landry is headed back to California after signing a 2-year contract with the Golden State Warriors today. Landry played part of the 2009-10 season in Sacramento after being traded by the Rockets to the Kings, then part of the 2010-11 season there before being traded to the New Orleans Hornets.

Landry tweeted “Happy to announce I will be joining the @Warriors family. Time to go to work!!! # WarriorNation” late Monday night.

The Purdue graduate was regarded as one of, if not THE, top remaining free agents on the market. His two year deal is reportedly worth $8 million, with the second year being a player option.

Landry played in 41 games last season for the New Orleans Hornets and started eight, averaging 12.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Fellow Fansided.com blog BlueManHoop.com has a post up now discussing why Landry was a “steal for the Warriors.”

“In Landry, the Warriors get a very effective offensive performer who fills a number of the team’s needs. First of all, Landry is an elite post-up scorer. Last year, there were only six NBA players who scored more efficiently in post-up situations than Landry, according to Synergy Sports. In short, he is the best post-up scorer the Warriors have had in decades.”
