Carl Landry to Become a Free Agent

by June 26, 2013

Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry has opted out of his deal, and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Per the Contra Costa Times: “Landry had one year remaining on his contract with Golden State, set to pay him $4 million. But after a productive season off the Warriors bench, Landry decided to try to parlay that into a long-term deal on the free agent market. He previously said it was a tough decision because he really wants to stay with Golden State, which is why he waited until the last possible day to decide. His contract stipulated he exercise his opt out by today, the day before the NBA draft. Landry, 29, averaged 10.8 points on 54 percent shooting – with a career-high 6.0 rebounds – in 23.2 minutes off the bench. Signed by the Warriors last offseason, he gave Golden State a much-needed low-post presence and injected some toughness into the frontcourt.”
