Marcus Landry Nets Deal with Lakers

According to reports, the Los Angeles Lakers have come agreed to a deal with Marcus Landry. Landry, the brother of Carl, was a key contributor to the Lakers Summer League team.

Even though Landry agreed to a deal, this does not mean he is on the Lakers roster. As Ramona’s tweet said, it is a camp invite. However, Landry is one of three players who has a chance to make the last roster spot, along with Chris Douglas-Roberts and Shawne Williams — Lamar Odom has an outside chance, but is unlikely to get a deal.

Landry  is a knockdown three point shooter, who can play either small forward, or play a stretch-four role in Mike D’Antoni’s system. If the Lakers were to sign the sharpshooter, they would be sticking to the theme of adding youth to their roster this off-season.

    SMH, LO someone who’d bring chemistry and depth to the team but management wants to go with young players and yet Kupcake says they’re not trying to tank?…

      You know I’m gonna disagree with you on this. I see no tanking in this move. Youth has been sorely needed the past few years. Chemistry will come via a full training camp for D’antoni and a healthy roster hopefully.

      The fact that we’ve got young hungry players that really want to be here is encouraging on the chemistry note. We all love LO but it’s not a given on his mental state about a Lakers return.
