July 16 2012 at 4:42pm CDT By Ryan Raroque

MONDAY, 4:42pm: There are several teams pursuing Landry, with the Warriors and Bobcats "running neck and neck at the front of the pack," reports Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times (via Twitter).

SATURDAY, 5:20pm: The Warriors met with Landry on Friday to discuss the possibility of the forward signing with Golden State, reports Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group (Sulia link).

FRIDAY, 1:43pm: While we probably could've guessed that the Hornets wouldn't be re-signing Landry after drafting Anthony Davis and acquiring Ryan Anderson, agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed today that he and the Hornets are no longer discussing a deal for his client, according to John Reid of the Times Picayune. However, Bartelstein said Landry is drawing interest from "a number of other teams."

THURSDAY, 9:13pm: Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group reports that the Warriors are in heavy pursuit of Carl Landry (Sulia link). While Thompson reports that talks are progressing, he acknowledges that Golden State's limited funds could present a heavy road block. 

Landry, who played for the Hornets last season, made $8.5MM in the final deal of his contract in 2011-12.

  1. I don’t think Landry will sign with us for such little money but if we could convince him to do so we are going to have depth on the roster like never before. With or without the signing gotta love what we have done over the last six months with almost no cap space. Thank you Mr Myers.

  2. If he made $8.5 million, he will definitely request at least the same if not more because he’s still good, not great but good.

  3. Carl Landry is a good player but not as good as Luis Scola, who is being amnestied by Houston. Landry backed up Scola when both were with the Rockets.

    Since Scola is being amnestied, an acquiring team might not have to pay his entire salary. They put in a bid and the highest bidder gets him. If less than his Houston contract, the Rockets pay the difference.
