The Golden State Warriors were in serious need of some depth at the power forward position, and they've reportedly added some with the acquisition of Carl Landry. Adrian Wojnarowski, among others, is reporting a 2-year, $8 million deal with a player option for the second year.

David Lee is the only other experienced power forward on the Warriors roster at the moment. Jeremy Tyler started 23 games last season, but shot just 42 percent from the floor. Landry has spent the last season and a half with the New Orleans Hornets and averaged 12.5 points and 5.2 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game last season. If Landry can stay healthy and perform at that level or above, he should be a solid value for Golden State.
