Carl Landry's brother
Marcus Landry to join the Lakers summer league team- great opportunity for Marcus-- he spent time with D'Antoni in New York.
For those that don't know who he is, he didn't get much playing time in the league as he was sent down to the d-league where he averaged 16.5 points and shot 42.8 % from three point land. Was a D-league all-star and also won the three point shooting contest
Landry has gone through training camps with the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. He was an NBA Development League All-Star this past season with the Reno Bighorns -- where he won the three-point contest.
Through 35 games with the Bighorns, Landry averaged 16.5 points a game while shooting 42.8% from three-point range.
One of the Lakers' off-season goals is to add shooting and athleticism.
Not expecting TOO much, but he's a 6'7 athletic forward that can shoot threes in 97 D-league games he's maintained at least a 40% three point percentage. It's not too hard to grasp why the Lakers got this guy for their summer league team.
I wish him the best and will be watching to see what he does in the summer league.
If he doesn't make it on the Lakers, Madsen will be coaching him on our D-league team.
Wish him the absolute best.
