The Los Angeles Lakers have signed Marcus Landry, one of the players that played in their summer league squad. Landry played well for the summer league squad and was expected by many to be on the Lakers roster for training camp.
Landry is a small forward who played his college ball at Wisconsin and was undrafted before being picked up by the New York Knicks. He has also spent some time playing for the Boston Celtics as well as the NBA’s D-League and internationally in China, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Spain. He has averaged 2.4 points and 1.1 rebounds throughout his career. If Landry is able to make the squad he is expected to make $788,873 for the season. His older brother Carl Landry has played in the NBA for 6 years and currently plays for the Sacramento Kings.
The Lakers are now at full capacity for the regular season but can add up to five more players for training camp. Landry has played for Mike D’Antoni when they were both with the Knicks and has a good shot to make the team with his ability to shoot from the three and is familiar with the style of play the Lakers are expected to run next year.
