Strengths/Weaknesses:
Landry is your typical hybrid forward. At 6’7, 230 pounds, he doesn’t have the typical frame to play the power-forward position, but his strength allows him to be capable of guarding some of the stronger forwards in the league.

Offensively, Landry can be best used as a stretch four in pick-and-pop scenarios. The fact that he shot 43.8% from beyond the arc last season is a positive sign, and proves to show that there is some potential for him to be effective in Mike D’Antoni’s system.

Where Landry struggles is his ability to create his own shot and penetrate to the rim. He has the body composition of a wing, but lacks the skill set it takes to be effective as a scorer at that position, hence why he’s primarily used as a stretch four in most offensive sets.

Defensively, Landry has the potential to be very effective. His physical build paired with his athletic ability allows him to defend guards and forwards, so if he can sell to the Lakers that he can defend, there likely is a place on this roster for him.

Expected Role:
Landry will be counted on to provide minutes at both forward positions. The Lakers brought him in because of his shooting ability and defensive potential.

The Lakers will likely count on Landry (if he makes the team) to be a “3 & D” type of guy. So, coming into the preseason he’ll have to prove that he can guard multiple positions, as well as convert consistently from beyond the arc.

This Year’s Expectations:
Landry impressed the Lakers during the Summer League enough to the point where he was given a camp invite.

With the big man rotation essentially set in stone, Landry is going to be battling with Elias Harris, Ryan Kelly, and Robert Sacre for minutes and perhaps even a spot on the roster. Not to mention, he’ll also have to compete with the wings on the roster to highlight his versatility.

It’ll be an uphill battle for Landry if he’s going to make this Lakers roster, but he has the physical tools as well as the skills that make it possible.
