Carl Landry close to opting out with Warriors, agent says
Warriors forward Carl Landry has enjoyed playing in Golden State, but he may be headed to the open market.
Landry's agent told CSNBayArea.com that the 29-year-old forward is leaning toward opting out of his contract with Golden State and testing the free agent market.
Landry signed a two-year, $8 million deal last summer with the second year as a player option. He has until Wednesday to decide whether or not to remain with the Warriors.
"He’s worth a lot more than the contract he has and the direction (we’re moving) toward is him opting out,” said his agent, Mark Bartelstein. “Things can change, but that’s where it’s leaning.”
Last season, Landry averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds a game while coming off the bench. The forward could still sign with the Warriors if he opts out of his current deal. SI WIRE: Celtics call off press conference, reschedule for Monday
