Los Angeles announced the deal Monday.
Landry averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in five appearances with the Lakers' summer league team, earning an invitation to training camp. The 6-foot-7 swingman's 3-point shooting accuracy should fit well into coach Mike D'Antoni's system, giving him a chance to make Los Angeles' roster.
Marcus Landry played for the New York Knicks and Boston during the 2009-10 season after catching on with New York as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee native has played in the NBA's D-League and in Puerto Rico, China, Spain and Venezuela the past three years.
