Warriors give Landry 2-year, $8 million deal

Veteran power forward Carl Landry has agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with Golden State, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein.

Landry, who has a player option in the second year of his deal, was one of the few impactful free agents left on the market and will join a Warriors team that is deeper than it has been since it last reached the playoffs in 2007.

With newly acquired center Andrew Bogut and forward David Lee starting in the frontcourt, the 28-year-old Landry -- who averaged 12.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 24.4 minutes for New Orleans last season -- will join a big man bunch that also includes rookie center Festus Ezeli from Vanderbilt, veteran center Andris Biedrins and second-year big man Jeremy Tyler.

Landry has long been known as an average rebounder, but his reliable and versatile scoring ability in the post and outside the paint will help the Warriors' second unit.

Golden State, which also added North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes, Michigan State small forward Draymond Green and 7-foot-1 Bosnian center Ognjen Kuzmic in the draft, is reportedly on the verge of re-signing 27-year-old small forward Brandon Rush as well. The Warriors finished just 23-43 last season.
