LA Lakers sign Landry

Published Add your comment

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed a deal to sign former New York Knicks forward Marcus Landry, according to the franchise's official website.

27-year-old Landry, who was not selected during the 2009 draft after leaving the University of Wisconsin, has recently spent time in the NBA Development League with both the Maine Red Claws and the Reno Bighorns. 

He does have previous NBA experience, however, having represented both the Boston Celtics and the Knicks during the 2009-10 season.

He started that particular campaign at TD Garden but was subsequently traded to New York as part of the deal that saw diminutive but explosive point guard Nate Robinson arrive in Boston. 

Details of the contract handed to Landry, whose big brother Carl currently plays in the Western Conference for the Sacramento Kings, have not been disclosed but it is thought that the offer was made as a result of his impressive performances for the Lakers' Summer League team.
