Carl Landry has value as an NBA player. He’s a professional veteran who has a solid midrange game that makes him a good pick-and-pop big.
It’s just he didn’t have a place in the crowded, young front court of the Philadelphia 76ers, so they waived him and ate his $6.5 million salary. However, it was expected another team would pick him up for the league minimum. But who? Minnesota-based Darren Wolfson has heard some names.
Landry is getting paid by the Sixers regardless, so he can play where he wants. Don’t be shocked if the veteran goes to San Antonio he and David Lee would back up LaMarcus Aldridge at the four. There he can chase a ring. He could step into a David West role in Indiana, or help a new front court rotation in Houston. There will be other teams interested as well.
For one year at the minimum, this would be a solid pickup for just about any team.
