Since joining the NBA in 2007, Carl Landry has bounced around the league, playing for Houston, Sacramento and New Orleans. In this offseason Landry signed a 2-year contract with the Golden State Warriors, and would like nothing else but to stay put in Oakland.

According to HOOPSWORLD, Landry said:

 

“Golden State has been more than good to me so far and that’s an understatement,”

“I’m really excited to be here. I signed a two-year deal and hopefully I can be here for a very long time.”

Coming off the bench, Landry has played a big part in leading the Warriors to a 17-8 record, providing efficient numbers across the board. He is averaging 13 points, 6.8 rebounds and is shooting 56.1% from the field.

Landry is earning every dollar of his 2-year $8M contract he signed with the Warriors. His contract has a player option for next season and by the looks of it he will be looking to exercise that option.

The 6′ 9″ power forward has previously found it difficult to find long term job security in the league, but if he continues to perform like he has, the Golden State Warriors will most likely pull out the cheque book and try to lock him up long-term.
