NBA free agency: Carl Landry, Kings reach 4-year agreement


Carl Landry got paid Saturday as the Kings agreed to give him a four-year deal.

The Sacramento Kings and free agent forward Carl Landry have agreed to a contract worth around $26-27 million over four years, agent Mark Bartelstein told the media on Saturday. The deal gives a young Kings team some added experience.

Four yers is a fairly long deal for a 29-year-old who spent the past season coming off the bench, but Landry has consistently provided efficient play in the post in the past. Last season with Golden State, Landry averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds per game while filling a key reserve role.

It's going to be interesting to see is how Landry fits onto a roster that already features a pair of power forwards in Jason Thompson and Patrick Patterson. Considering the money Sacramento just committed, though, it wouldn't be surprising to see some trade rumblings in the coming weeks concerning this logjam of players.
