Will Philadelphia 76ers trade Carl Landry before opening night?
The Philadelphia 76ers and Carl Landry don't make a lot of sense together. One is a basketball team trying to fill their roster with young, inexpensive assets. The other is an aging, injury prone forward who's guaranteed $13 million over the next two seasons.
All this lends credence to the belief that Philly will move Landry to another team sooner than later, much like they just did with Jason Thompson.
The 31-year-old Landry averaged 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game with the Sacramento Kings last season. When healthy, he's a bruiser who can step outside and knock down the occasional mid-range jump shot.
Landry's age and contract are kryptonite to Philadelphia general manager Sam Hinkie. He isn't a terrible player, but the chance of Landry playing out the next two years of his career with the Sixers is slim to nil.
