Golden State Warriors Close to Signing Carl Landry and Brandon Rush

According to agent Mark Bartelstein, unrestricted free agent forward Carl Landry is close to inking a deal with the Golden State Warriors. Landry will reportedly be joined by Brandon Rush — a restricted free agent — who is expected to re-sign with the team. Per CSN Bay Area: “The Warriors had made clear early in the offseason that re-signing Rush, who averaged 9.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, was a priority. Rush shot 45.2 percent from 3-point range in 2011-12, sixth in the league. As a restricted free agent, Rush had the right to sign an offer sheet from another team and then wait for the Warriors to match the offer or not. But Rush had failed to get a qualifying offer, and so he will simply come to terms on a contract with Golden State. Landry played 41 games for the New Orleans Hornets last season, averaging 12.5 points and 5.2 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game. Landry will likely back up power forward David Lee. […] With the additions of Rush and Landry, the Warriors’ roster stands at 15 players, though not all of those contracts are guaranteed. Still, it appears that Monday’s moves will likely mean the Warriors will not bring back forward Dominic McGuire.”

    Too bad for McGuire. Dude is good at doing everything on the court, but in a sport where you need to be elite at something, being good at it all doesn’t cut it.

    I don’t know if I would characterize Dom McGuire as being good at everything on the court. He’s position versatile, but pretty much average at everything. Average at best. Carl Landry is a nice pickup for what the Warriors are building. If Curry and Bogut can stay healthy for a majority of the 82, they coud be in contention for the 7 or 8 seed.

    I see Warriors on the up & up, my second favorite team. Hope Barnes brings it, BARNES FOR ROY

    I’m still pissed at the fact that they traded Ellis, but also still a big Warrior. A big FU at the team owners!!!

    Teddy im from Toronto as well, but just give the dude a break; if your a true fan and you watched everygame, you would see that before his injury he was shooting nearly 50% overall and over 40% from the 3, hell, even his still bad d had improved when I had checked his advanced statistics before his injury. Although I will say he doesnt deserve what he makes because of rebounding and his developing .. d alone, but Bargnani has shown nice flashes so I think hanging on to him might be a good idea..

    Barnani? You can keep that trash in toronto.
    Mcguire is a swiss knife, & pretty much is average but his defense is pretty good. He would guard the 1-4 depending on who was the other teams best player…& very athletic blocking shots, key rebounds & could spell anyone for a while.

    I’m not mad at the front office for trading monta, klay was a great pickup & brought more versatility &height to the position. sorry to say it but klay eats more off the team concept to where monta did his thing & everyone followed & fed off him. Klay can do anything on the court… He could 15ppg a game of his jumpsuit alone. Not including steals, put backs, & drives to the rack of the dribble & back door cuts in marc jackson’s system. I love Monta & wish him the best but he ain’t missed.
