Carl Landry To Hold Open Audition

Like his fellow free agent – and former teammate – Jarrett Jack, veteran forward Carl Landry will hold an open audition for NBA teams this month as he attempts to land with a club, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein. Unlike Jack and some of the other veteran free agents seeking NBA jobs, Landry isn’t recovering from a major injury, but wants to show potential suitors that he’s in shape and ready to contribute.

A nine-year NBA veteran, Landry appeared in 36 games for the Sixers last season, averaging 9.8 PPG and 4.1 RPG while shooting 55.6% from the floor. The 33-year-old had a guaranteed contract with Philadelphia for this season, but given the team’s frontcourt logjam and Landry’s aversion to sitting on the bench, the team decided to waive him before training camps got underway. He has been a free agent since then.

Although Landry hasn’t found a new NBA home yet, there may be opportunities opening up around the league in the coming days and weeks. Teams can begin signing players to 10-day contracts today, and after all 30 teams carried full 15-man rosters for the first couple months of the season, several clubs are opening up roster spots this month. Currently, four teams – Charlotte, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Antonio – have just 14 players under contract, and more clubs figure to open up roster spots in the next few days, prior to the 2016/17 salary guarantee deadline.

    I doubt that. I always liked him as a player, but he’s not quite 6’8″ and not an outside threat. The Warriors don’t need a smaller David West and the Spurs don’t need anyone right now. Maybe a team needs a Udonis Haslem type 3rd string PF, but I can’t think of one now. The Cavs maybe? They’re thin at the 4…

    Undersize big who can’t shoot the 3. You should be happy you lasted as long as you did. Now time to go collect your checks overseas.

    For all his mentorship and three point shooting last year, Landry gave up something like 55% to opposing players.
