Lakers News: Lakers Sign Free Agent Forward Marcus Landry

As expected, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed free agent Marcus Landry, according to a Lakers press release. Landry’s deal is expected to be a partially guaranteed contract. Much like Xavier Henry and Shawne Williams, Marcus Landry is expected to be invited to camp, but will have to work through training camp and pre-season to make the Opening Night roster.

In the D-League last season, Landry averaged 16.5 points and five rebounds per game while shooting nearly 43 percent from three-point range with the Reno Bighorns. For the Lakers Summer League team, Landry averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per game.

Much like Elias Harris, who received a two-year deal with the Lakers, Landry is a tweener in size and will fluctuate between the small and power forward positions. The Lakers are in need of a stretch four, and Landry could provide that service off the bench with his propensity for hitting the long ball.

What separated Landry from his peers on the Lakers summer league team was not only his ability to shoot the three, but his ability and willingness to attack the paint. Landry can also guard multiple positions. Of the three guys being brought in on partially guaranteed contracts, Landry has the highest celling and the most potential to make the team.

UPDATE: According to Serena Winters, the Landry contract will be a one-year, make good deal.
